Preco Electronics has released two new PreView products: Side Defender and Sentry. The PreView Side Defender has been developed specifically for the over-the-road (OTR) markets including trucking, municipalities, waste and recycling. According to independent research, the incidence of highway and urban collisions are rising by almost 10% per year.
PRECO believes that this is unacceptable and is driven to design technology that assists heavy duty vehicle operators to mitigate these avoidable accidents. The Side Defender system actively warns operators with audible and visual alerts, in order for them to take the appropriate actions to mitigate collisions.
The PreView Sentry has a fully adjustable detection zone, with the ability to detect objects from the face of the radar up to 30 meters (98 feet), and the width of the detection zone is adjustable to fit almost all vehicle types. Sentry accurately identifies the location and velocity of up to 16 people or objects simultaneously and is designed to withstand the harsh environments encountered by heavy-duty equipment.
