Cartronix in Valparaiso has been at the forefront of driver safety since the beginning. Blind spot systems are one of the fastest-growing segments of driver safety, helping to alert you of vehicles in your actual blind spot while you’re driving.
Almost all of us have started to change lanes, only to find out there was already a vehicle in the lane we wanted to enter. We all also know that driver distraction is becoming a bigger issue on our streets. These products will help keep you more alert to all the things happening around you while you’re driving.
Our systems break down into two distinctly different products: sensor based and camera-based systems.
Blind Spot Sensors
The blind spot sensor systems from Cartronix use a sophisticated radar-based technology to alert you when someone enters your blind spot. It uses two different types of alerts: visual and audible. When someone comes into your blind spot on the left side, a visual indicator that we install on the left side of your vehicle illuminates, alerting you of a vehicle. If you activate your left turn signal, an audible alert goes off as a second warning, helping you avoid an accident. This setup works the same way on the passenger side of your car, truck or SUV. Since this is a radar-based system, things like night time or weather don’t affect its performance.
Blind Spot Camera Systems
The second style of blind spot system we install is camera-based. For this model, we install a camera strategically underneath your driver’s side and passenger side mirrors. The camera itself is aimed at the blind spot on each side of the vehicle. Inside, the camera images are displayed in one of three areas:
- A replacement rearview mirror with an embedded LCD monitor in it
- Integrated with the existing color screen in the dash, or installed in a new stereo system with a full-color touchscreen
- A standalone color monitor
When you activate your left blinker, the camera on the left side of your vehicle displays on your monitor. When you activate your right blinker, the right camera displays on the monitor. Now you can see anything that is in your blind spot.
As Good as the Product Itself
As the driver safety category gets more popular, cheap products flood the market. What confounds us is why someone would ever skimp on quality for a product that may save a life. Rest assured – Cartronix only sells the best-performing, most-reliable products on the market.
Blind Spot Systems Designed to Look Factory-installed
When you buy a blind spot system from us, our highly skilled technicians will perform an installation using reference-standard methods that rival or exceed those of a vehicle manufacturer. Our team’s goal is to give you a system that looks like it came installed from the factory and provides great reliability.
