Rear View Safety Announces New Backup Sensor Reversing System

Thu Dec 21, 2017

151387316768486.jpgNEW YORK—Rear View Safety released more than 50 new safety solutions during 2017 and has introduced another system for 2018.

The new system, called the RVS-112-W Waterproof Backup Sensor Reversing System, is designed to warn drivers of potential obstacles behind their vehicle up to eight feet away

The new product is an upgraded version of the flagship RVS-112 Backup Sensor Reversing System. All components of the RVS-112-W are waterproof, allowing the operator to install the control module outside the vehicle. This feature gives the user flexibility on installation location.

Using ultrasonic echo location sonar technology, the system is activated when the driver engages reverse gear. A 4-zone variable audio pulse alerts the driver of potential obstacles. The audio pulse intensity increases and the audio frequency changes as the vehicle backs closer to the obstacle. These intelligent sensors automatically ignore stationary, permanent objects, such as truck steps, up to 30 centimeters away.

The RVS-112-W is available for pre-order and will be released early in 2018.

To find out more information about the RVS-112-W, or to learn more about the company in general, visit the organization's official website at www.rearviewsafety.com or call 800-764-1028.
