Driver Assistance System helps ensure safe lane changing.

Using ultrasonic sensors, Side View Assist blind-spot assistant is capable of registering objects 3 m to side and diagonally to rear of vehicle. If sensors detect vehicle, signal is checked for plausibility by system's electronics to prevent false alarms. System then warns driver optically, and if driver fails to react, it will provide acoustic warning. Working at speeds of 10-140 kph, Side View...
