VEHICLE PROXIMITY DETECTION SYSTEM

Over a half-million automobile accidents each year result from improper overtaking. This frightening statistic might be reduced substantially if a near solid-state detection system developed by Sylvania's Wake-field Development Laboratory were to come into widespread use.

Designed to meet the specifications of a major automobile manufacturer, Sylvania's Vehicle Proximity Detection System Model HS 200 will respond to vehicles within 30 feet of its sensor, covering an area slightly larger than a single traffic lane. Its intended application is to alert a driver to vehicles moving into his rear blind zones as illustrated in Fig. 49.12.
