Lane Departure Warning
Lane departure warning systems (LDWS) are designed to prevent collisions caused by accidental lane changes. LDWS typically use optical recognition to detect lane markings. When a vehicle equipped with LDWS drifts onto one of these lane markings, the driver will receive an audible alert prompting them to correct the vehicle back into the proper lane.
Forward Collision Warning
Forward collision warning systems (FCWS) are designed to prevent or mitigate the damage caused by rear-end collisions. Many FCWS use optical recognition to detect when a vehicle gets too close to the car ahead. The driver will then receive an audible or visual warning allowing them to make the necessary adjustment to avoid a collision.
Backup cameras or rear-view camera systems are a safety device designed to assist with parking a vehicle and can help with preventing dangerous back over accidents. Backup cameras are typically mounted on the back of a vehicle on or near the license plate and provide real-time video to an in dash screen or rear-view mirror display.
Backup sensors assist a driver in parking their vehicle and can help prevent collisions while entering or exiting a parking space. Backup sensors provide an audible alert in increasing intensity the closer the car gets to another object. Backup sensors are typically flush mounted on the rear bumper but can also be installed on the front of a vehicle as well.
Blind spot sensors are designed to assist in preventing collisions while changing lanes. Blind spot sensors are typically radar based systems that mount on the left and right rear bumper and provide an audible or visual warning when another vehicle in an adjacent lane is in a location not easily seen by rearview or side mirrors.
