Delphi's Rear and Side Detection System (RSDS) helps make drivers aware of approaching vehicles when changing lanes or making turns. By providing an alert when a vehicle has entered a blind spot to the rear or side of the vehicle, RSDS helps give drivers more time to react to obstacles that may be difficult to see in the side mirror.
Using a globally-accepted, 76GHz, single-beam mono-pulse radar, Delphi's RSDS has better Doppler discrimination, wider bandwidth and a smaller RF window than 24GHz systems. Additional benefits of the 76GHz system include:
Alerts are determined by the vehicle manufacturer and can include audible chimes and/or visual indicators in the side mirrors. To reduce the possibility of nuisance warnings, audible alerts can be automatically deactivated when the turn signal is being used.
Delphi's Rear and Side Detection System helps to reduce the potential for accidents, injury and costly property damage and enables multiple consumer-desired safety features.
