Mercedes now offers blind spot monitoring assistant in the S-Class and CL models. The electronic assistant is included with other safety systems using radar beams.
According to Mercedes, the assistant monitors the blind spot using six radar sensors located in the body bumpers, which scan the area to the side and behind the car.
As soon as the system detects the presence of another vehicle in this area, a warning red triangle in the outside mirror lights up. If the driver does not pay attention to this and turns on the direction indicator, the triangle starts flashing and an additional acoustic signal sounds.
Daimler only offers innovation in conjunction with other radar-based systems such as distronic cruise control, emergency braking, PRE-SAFE and parking assistance. The price of the security package varies depending on the model.
