Vehicle Safety & Collision Avoidance Systems
Keep your family & loved ones safe with our integrated safety solutions.
Starting in 2018 rear-view cameras will be mandatory on all new vehicles, however, most vehicles on the road are not equipped with them. The good news is that you do not have to wait until 2018 as we can install quality front and rear cameras. Did you know that owning one or both reduces stress when reversing, and can prevent major damage, accidents, and may even prevent unintentional deaths?
Rear view cameras also let you see a wide field of vision you would otherwise not be able to see with conventional mirrors. We don’t have to stress the importance if you have children or young neighborhood children in your area. In a recent study, over half of drivers equipped with rear-view cameras avoided backing over a stationary object placed behind the vehicle when they weren’t looking.
Here at Elite Car Customs in Reading, PA, we can even integrate the screen into the factory LCD screen for seamless factory integration if your vehicle has one. And if it not equipped with a factory screen we have several solutions including a rear-view mirror with a built-in monitor. Speak with one of our experts to see what solutions are best for you.
Front/Rear Parking Sensors
Parking sensors make squeezing into those tight spaces a breeze and help avoid damage to your vehicle. These become especially useful if you live in large cities with limited parking. Our sensors help you avoid unnecessary damage by warning you when you are getting too close to another object.
It works by a technique called the echo sounder to detect obstacles, much like sonar. The pulsing warning tone gets faster the closer you are to an obstacle. The system is equipped with up to six ultrasonic sensors located in the rear and/or front bumpers. The sensors themselves are small and can be painted to match the color of the vehicle so they blend in and are barely noticeable.
Collision Avoidance Systems
Remember vehicle crash test dummies? They serve a great purpose in determining the safety of a vehicle post-collision. But as technology has advanced, the new focus is on preventing those collisions as much as possible putting more control in the driver’s hands so to speak. This is the new era of vehicle safety.
We offer several solutions for your vehicle including lane departure warning systems which will alert the driver if an object is detected nearby while switching lanes. This technology helps with common blind spots that many vehicles have. These product solutions will work for any vehicle on the road today & can improve the driver safety to prevent an accident.
An ignition interlock is a device about the size of a cell phone that is wired into the ignition system of a vehicle. A convicted drunk driver must blow into the device in order to start their vehicle. A majority of U.S. States now use ignition interlocks as an alternative to revoking driving privileges.
Here at Elite Car Customs in Reading, PA is here to get you back on the road if you need to install an low cost ignition interlock device into your vehicle. We will provide you with professional installation and training to guide you through using your court-ordered or DMV required ignition interlock program.
