Posted September 28, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

In an effort to prevent accidental sideswiping, Mercedes-Benz has developed a new safety feature called Blind Spot Assist.

Similar to a system already developed by Volvo, the new safety feature will debut on its S-class and CL-Class models.

The Blind Spot Assist uses six short-range radar sensors located in the front and rear bumpers that monitor the zone to the side and rear of the car on both the left and the right. If another car is driving alongside in the blind sport, the system will display a red warning symbol in the associated side mirror. If the driver ignores the warning and then turns on their indicator, the red warning symbol with start to flash and sound off a warning noise inside the car.

This is great news! Now, when are they gonna invent an alarm that sounds off every time you make a turn without putting your friggin’ blinker on!
