Like many other safety and driver-assistance systems, the blind-spot monitor is rapidly becoming standard equipment on new vehicle brands. The crew here at Volvo Cars Cincinnati East is up-to-date on the latest developments in this modern automotive safety technology, and we invite you to our location to test drive a new vehicle to see how blind-spot monitoring works for yourself.

Blind-spot monitoring comes in especially handy when changing lanes at highway speeds or in heavy traffic conditions. On most vehicles, a blind-spot monitor consists of a system of cameras or sensors that are designed to detect the presence of other automobiles in the nearby vicinity.

The presence of traffic in one of the blind spot areas is usually conveyed via a visible alert on the mirror or a vibrating pulse under the driver’s seat. An audible bell or alarm may also be employed.
