how are you doing? i'm already looking for the right connection for my idea of a new product. i've found you through SENSOR GRP. i figured you must be very familiar with the sensor market as well as manufacturers/engineers. i have a patent pending for this idea. however, i'm looking for a reliable manufacturer who already got the technology and ready for mass production. below is brief description of my idea. please let me know if you can refer me to a right manufacturer. i'm also looking for partner(s) if you know any. thanks.
you are driving at 35mph or more, a tailgate driver is approaching less than 15 ft, a pair of red lights (additional visible small lights) mounted in the rear at the eye level flash on to alert the tailgate driver he/she is coming too fast and too close to your vehicle. additional red lights and audio speaker mounted on the dashboard alerting that you are being tailgated. this concept works really well for tailgate drivers as well as for drivers being tailgated. it's the visual and audio warning help prevent tailgaters resulting in serious accident.
though auto makers are coming out cars with the Accident Avoidance System, this simple device costs alot less and can be installed on any type of vehicle.
HOW IT WORKS
it's simple technical application consists of a proximity/radar sensor and few LED lights and a small audio speaker. the sensor (withholding freezing point and boiling temperature) is mounted under the bumper while the lights can be mounted on the windshield.
