Continental Motorcycle Safety Technologies: Blind Spot Detection
Welcome to part two of the Continental Motorcycle Safety Technologies series, blind spot detection. This series will expose the latest motorcycle technologies from Continental. These technologies maximize safety for all riders and help accomplish Continental’s Vision Zero.
These technologies have been developed to support Continental’s worldwide safety campaign, Vision Zero. Vision Zero is Continental’s commitment to safety in both automobiles and motorcycles. Zero fatalities, zero injuries, zero accidents. It’s only the combination of advanced rider assistance systems and premium tires that puts drivers in a position to actually benefit from top level safety out on the roads. Continental is the only company that can offer high-tech solutions in both product areas from a single source.
In this second post you will discover more about the Continental Motorcycle Blind Spot Detection System. You have probably heard about blind spot detection on cars before, but not on motorcycles. The transition of this technology to two wheels is a testament of Continental’s safety priority in all kinds of automobiles.
Blind Spot Detection
The Blind Spot Detection system avoids failing to see a car approaching rapidly from behind in the left-hand lane or in the blind spot. It can monitor these areas and take much of the strain off the driver to avoid hazardous situations. This is possible thanks to sensors that monitor the road area behind and next to the vehicle and warn if there is an attempt to pull out despite there being no gap.
Features & Benefit
- Increases safety during lane changes
- Alerts the driver from the presence of relevant objects
- Offers optical (e.g. in the side mirrors) and/or haptic warning
- Eliminates momentary head turn distractions to see vehicles in the blind spot
