Blindspot Avoidance Radar (Autoblog.com)
Imagine the frustration of investing and installing a new radar detector only to discover that all it alerts you to is something installed in your car and every other new car within close proximity. The reason this is happening is that car manufacturers are installing collision avoidance and adaptive cruise control systems into new cars, which use radar or laser sensors, enabling the car to automatically sense its driving environment and to respond accordingly.
Because many of these systems use the same radar and laser frequencies that police use, many radar detectors sold today are nothing more then new-car detectors.
Not only that, consider how the police must feel with their radars being degraded with all of that other radar “noise” around.
