The RearSentry obstacle sensing system from Rostra Precision Controls can now be leased through Empire Leasing of Liverpool NY. By leasing the product, fleet owners are not required to make a large initial capital investment.
Rostra also will provide prospective lease customers with a return-on-investment analysis of their actual yearly accident costs versus the cost of leasing the RearSentry.
RearSentry system uses microwave technology to warn drivers when an obstacle is in their path. Operating like an extra set of eyes for drivers, the RearSentry detects objects not in clear view. It mounts out of sight behind or on the vehicle's rear bumper, and alerts drivers to obstacles up to 12 feet from the rear of the vehicle. It works in the dark, at night, and in weather conditions like heavy fog, rain, or snow. The driver is alerted through a series of audible beeps that increase in intensity as the object draws closer, and from an in-cab read-out display with green, yellow, and red lights. RearSentry comes with a five-year, 50,000-mile warranty.
