The Safe Line

Statistics show that a number of accidents happen due to the difference of radius between inner wheels and the outer wheels, when a heavy-duty truck is turning. To help negotiate the turn, an infrared ray system with sensors, called the Safety Line, is installed on both sides of the truck. This line can detect the status of the turn and alerts pedestrians or other vehicles in the danger zone of the turn.

The sensors also alerts the truck driver and the people who are too close to the truck.
