Continental, a global supplier of systems, components, and tires to automobile, truck, and agriculture/construction equipment manufacturers, now offers an Ultrasonic Back-Up Sensor Kit that can be retrofitted to or incorporated as OEM for virtually any vehicle including commercial vehicles, RVs, and off-highway, agricultural, material handling equipment, the company noted in a press release.
Out of the box, the Ultrasonic Back-Up Sensor Kit provides an audible alarm to the operator when the vehicle comes within 10 feet of an object and beeps faster as the driver gets closer to the obstacle. The kit can also be customized for specific distance intervals to meet OEM specifications.
This back up system delivers a voice announcement of object distance at specific intervals and easily integrates with on-board camera/monitor systems. When paired with a back-up camera system, a monitor will display an overlay, revealing the active sensor(s) and the object distance from that sensor.
The Continental Ultrasonic Back-Up Sensor Kit can be retrofitted or installed as original equipment. The kit includes four sensors, a central control unit, and a speaker. Cameras, and monitors are available from Continental as options.
