Putting Bikes On Truck Radar

TECHNOLOGY company Continental has developed RightViu, a radar based turn assist system that can be retrofitted to HGVs to detect and classify cyclists and pedestrians.
‘We believe that our solution is ideal for detecting cyclists in the blind spot, distinguishing them from other objects, and avoiding serious accidents,’ said Georg Kliewer, head of aftermarket products for special vehicles at Continental.
RightViu does not require a display in the cabin. The radar is installed on the mount of the rear-view mirror, so no holes need to be made in the vehicle body. The system uses the existing CANbus in the vehicle.
