Radar for big trucks

2012-08-02 14:46 Shanghai Daily     Web Editor: Liu Xian comment

A worker installs radar device on a concrete truck in Yangpu District yesterday. Shanghai traffic police tested radar detection devices on large construction vehicles to prevent accidents. The devices, however, didn't work as well as anticipated. The sensors did not alert drivers until test objects were very close, which left them little time to react . The equipment provider will conduct more tests and adjust the device . Officials have been working on ways to assist drivers of large vehicles, whose visibility is limited when making turns.
