InventHelp®, America’s largest inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Virginia, has designed a vehicle system that could prevent accidents caused by blind spots. This invention is patented.
“Safe Lane” operates when a driver turns on their turn signal. Sensors are activated which alert the driver to a clear lane (via a chime) or an occupied lane (via beeping). These features could enable a driver to change lanes without worry, as well as promote safety and peace of mind.
Safe Lane device is similar in design to existing reverse-warning sensor systems. The unit would measure one inch high, four inches long and four inches wide. The unit would be wired to the vehicle’s on-board computer, connecting it to the turn signal and speedometer mechanisms. When the turn signal is turned on, sensors that would be mounted to the side moldings of the vehicle’s rear-wheel wells would then be activated. These sensors would determine if there is a vehicle in the left or right blind spots. If there is a vehicle present, the sensors activate a Warning light on the dashboard instrument panel, as well as a beeping sound. If there is no vehicle, an OK light illuminates on the panel and a chime is activated.
InventHelp is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor. For more information, telephone Dept. 08-FML-241 at (800) 851-6030.
