Kalamazoo, MICH. — Eaton VORAD Technologies LLC, a subsidiary of Eaton Corporation, has announced that they will partner with Preco Electronics of Boise, Idaho to offer a stand-alone side object detection system.

This side sensor will be added to Eaton’s current VORAD safety product line. The new side sensor is a radar-based object detection system that can be used on commercial vehicles.

Preco has given Eaton worldwide exclusivity for on-road use of the side sensor unit under the Eaton VORAD name.

The Eaton VORAD EVT-300 Collision Warning System, part of the Roadranger System of drivetrain components, includes both forward and side radar sensors that detect objects and vehicles. In-cab display units with a series of warning lights and audible tones are used to warn the driver of the presence of these objects and vehicles. These warnings give the driver added time to take action to avoid a collision.
