HELLA 24 GHz radar sensors allow vehicle manufacturers to offer driver assistance systems in all automotive segments, even in the compact class. As more vehicle models today are being equipped with driver assistance systems, customers have come to expect their vehicles to be equipped with these sensors, as a standard offering.
The HELLA 24 GHz radar sensors can help prevent accidents in several functions.
- Blind Spot Monitoring
The sensor operates in the near range to monitor the area in the driver’s blind spot and warns him or her of danger when changing lanes.
- Lane Change Assistant
The lane change assistant function makes driving safer by warning if a lane change is a dangerous manoeuvre. It maximises safety especially when driving on highways. A warning distance of 70 meters gives the driver enough time to abort the lane change.
- Rear Pre-Crash System
The rear pre-crash system tracks vehicles approaching from behind. In the event of an imminent collision, the system pre-activates safety devices such as airbags and seat belts.
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
The rear cross traffic alert uses the sensor’s side detection capability and warns the driver of approaching vehicles when manoeuvring out of a parking space. The function is activated the moment the reverse gear is engaged.
- Vehicle Exit Assistant
The vehicle exit assistant monitors the area to the right and the left of the car doors, both on the passenger's and the driver's side to the back and to the front. The function warns the occupants if the car door cannot be opened safely.
