Obstacle sensor like having extra pair of eyes

Rostra Precision Controls' RearSentry obstacle sensing device is designed for use in fleets, and is available for installation in various local delivery and medium-size trucks, utility vehicles, cargo vans, and private equipment.

Operating like an extra set of eyes for drivers, RearSentry detects objects that are 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 a vehicle. It works in the dark and in poor weather conditions such as heavy fog, rain, or snow.

RearSentry uses microwave technology to warn drivers when an obstacle is in their path. 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. For complete details, contact Rostra, 2519 Dana Dr, Laurinburg NC 28352.
