Vehicle owners who are looking for a way to enhance their safety on the roads of Richmond and Mechanicsville come to Extreme Audio for blind spot detection systems. We joke that a sixth sense, or having “eyes in the back of our heads,” sometimes saves us from costly incidents. Imagine if your car could tell you when someone was hiding in your blind spot? That information would dramatically reduce the chance of an accident or the need for you, or the drivers around you, to make an emergency maneuver. This article explains what a blind spot monitoring system is, and how we can install one in your vehicle.
What is Blind Spot Detection?
Late-model mid- to high-end cars often include advanced safety systems like blind spot monitoring, backup cameras, parking sensors and lane departure warning systems. A blind spot warning system uses short-range radar or ultrasonic sensors to detect the presence of a car or truck driving beside you and just out of your field of vision. When the system detects a vehicle, it will illuminate a small indicator that we install near the A-pillars of your vehicle. This visual indicator is a reminder to look over your shoulder before you change lanes. There is an indicator on each side of the dash, so you know where the other vehicle is, on either your left or your right.
If you activate your turn signal with someone still in this location, the detection system will produce a loud tone to alert you that it is not safe to change lanes.
We also offer blind spot camera systems that will show you what is beside your vehicle when you turn on your signal. We can display the image on many factory infotainment screens or install a new monitor for you.
Adding Blind Spot Warning Systems to Your Vehicle
We can add a blind spot detection system to almost any vehicle on the road. When you come to Extreme Audio, a member of our team will start by inspecting your vehicle. We will determine what type of system is most appropriate for your vehicle; then we can discuss where you would like the warning indicators installed. Once we have a thorough grasp of the complexity of the project, we will provide you with an accurate quote to install, configure and test the system.
