Advanced Radar System Helps Drivers Avoid Accidents

Safe Drive Systems unveils what it calls the world’s most sophisticated platform for avoiding chain-reaction traffic accidents. The new radar-enhanced RD-140 Super Premium tracks brake lights in the car ahead and also spots pedestrians even in harsh weather, when the driver’s vision can be compromised. It includes a radar decoding element, which automatically operates of the rear brake lights when it senses there is an impending danger of a crash and flashes them several times per second.


Moreover, because the back lights are activated even before the driver presses on the brake pedal, drivers who are immediately behind have a longer period to react. This adds yet another layer of protection to their lives.

In addition, RD-140 Super Premium senses the presence of pedestrians at a distance of up to 460 feet away, even at night or when visibility is impaired due to inclement weather conditions such as rain, storms, fog, or snow. It also filters out glare from the sun that can constitute a real danger, especially in sun-belt states.


The SDS radar system is based on an advanced processor that functions as its brain, collating statistics from sensors and processing the information in order to activate warnings in real time. The screen and keyboard feature a user-friendly interface that also provides visual warnings and allows the driver to enter data. In addition, to the radar and the decoder, the system includes a high quality seven-watt loudspeaker that sounds warning alarms.


RD-140 Super Premium can be installed in any vehicle manufactured since 2006. For more details, visit
