LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Delphi introduces its latest radar technology, which provides drivers with the ability to better detect objects in their surroundings.

Forewarn Back-up aid is a rear detection system that aids the driver in detecting obstacles in backing maneuvers or loading dock situations. It offers the long-range detection benefits of a radar-based system, more than 16 feet, and the advantage of a tailored coverage area.

The back-up aid alerts the driver of objects in the rear vehicle path with an audio alert, these sounds may vary in intensity and rate to indicate how close the vehicle is to an object.

The system provides benefits in heavy rain, fog, snow and dirty vehicle conditions. This system is available now to the truck market and a similar side system will be introduced within a few months.
