The Bendix® BlindSpotter® Side Object Detection system uses an upgraded side-mounted radar unit - typically installed on the passenger side of the vehicle (but also available for driver-side -mounting) - to alert drivers to vehicles or objects in adjacent lanes. When connected to the vehicle's J1939 CAN (Controller Area Network), the upgraded BlindSpotter radar provides a wider, 150-degree range of coverage capable of detecting objects up to 20 feet in front of and 20 feet behind the BlindSpotter radar when traveling at city and highway speeds. The coverage zone extends up to 10 feet to the right of the vehicle, depending on the BlindSpotter radar mounting position.Learn more
False alerts are minimized with BlindSpotter® by operating differently at different vehicle speeds. When connected to the CAN and at higher speeds, the system filters out stationary objects like guardrails. The slow-speed, or yard warning mode - active at less than 20 mph - narrows the range for alerts, enabling added visibility for low speed maneuvering and backing up.
The Bendix® BlindSpotter® Side Object Detection system works on most types and makes of tractors, trucks and buses - a single system and interface for your entire fleet. BlindSpotter can be retrofitted by Bendix Certified Installers.
BlindSpotter's® in-cab interface is easy-to-see and easy-to-read. When the amber LED is illuminated, there are no detected vehicles in the blind spot. When a vehicle enters the BlindSpotter detection field, a red LED illuminates to inform the driver. Furthermore, if the driver activates the turn signal while a vehicle is in the blind spot, an audible alert will sound. Remember, BlindSpotter is intended to be used with, and is not a replacement for, your vehicle's mirrors.
BlindSpotter® features an upgraded radar unit that connects to the J1939 CAN bus, making it capable of integrating with Bendix® Wingman® Fusion™, our flagship advanced driver assistance system. By linking BlindSpotter and Fusion, data from both systems will soon be accessible for fleet review through our user-friendly web portal, SafetyDirect® by Bendix CVS. Pairing these systems makes sense as a key step toward putting safe drivers in even safer trucks.
The highway-proven BlindSpotter system features an upgraded radar with an even wider field of view.
