Between platforms such as Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, and the rise of smartphone technology, the world of motorcycles has witnessed a tide of giants and gadgets in recent years. One recent aftermarket apparatus on the scene is a new motorcycle-mounted radar system that warns riders to vehicles in or near their blind spot, operating in much the same way as the type of systems commonly found on modern cars.
The primary device component – which does not appear to be much larger than the pager – is mounted on the rear of the wheel or license plate facing backwards. The system radar has a 30-foot field in which it can detect vehicles – including other motorcycles – and the unit automatically turns on as the wheel starts to move. If there is a system does the feeling that the vehicle is approaching a blind spot on the bike, the rider is warned by the flashing lights mounted on the mirrors, as well as by the tactile vibrating system on the seat, which is offered as powerful enough to be easily seen over the huge rumbling of the motorcycle engine.
A system called the Sensor BlindSpot Detection System. or BDS simply comes from Cub ElecParts Inc, a Tawianese outfit that manufactures tire pressure monitoring systems, sensors and other helpers. Recently, the company has split into after-sales deadlock detection for RV, trailers and motorcycles. While I certainly see some practical use for Senzar on sacks and other bikes that are unloaded in the luggage or riders on a tour of two, for almost all other types of two-wheelers, I guess to turn my head to remove all blind spots and that the riders should Check over your shoulder and not just rely on their mirrors.
BDS Sensor is currently available for pre-order and is offered in half, resulting in an insignificant $ 399 price. And at that price you think the system can be wireless… which is not. Despite the fact that countdown clocks have appeared on the company's website that appear to have been exhausted in January, the product does not appear to be running, with the site continuing to advertise a 50% discount on pre-sales, regardless of shipping or release . date.
