Mercedes-Benz, a subsidiary of Daimler AG (NYSE: DAI)(FWB:DAI), has launched a radar-based system, named Mercedes-Benz Blind Spot Assist.

The system alerts the driver to dangers when turning corners and takes into account the tractrix curve to warn of the danger of colliding with stationary objects such as bollards, power poles, or traffic lights if the vehicle continues on its projected path. It also aids when changing lanes by alerting the driver by means of an optical signal if a moving object is present on the passenger side of the vehicle.

Mercedes has not revealed when the first commercially-available truck will feature the Blind Spot Assist system.
