Target Blu Eye
We all at some time or the other may have experienced the following situation: you are held at a traffic light, listening to the radio and all of a sudden there is an ambulance with sounding siren and flashing lights behind you. You panic and try to find a way to make space and let it pass as soon as possible.
Would it not be much better and specifically much safer if a warning could appear inside your vehicle long before the arrival of the emergency service vehicle? Target Blu Eye is such a warning device.
Target Blu Eye: Based on Tetra Technology
The innovative and new traffic safety system Target Blu Eye consists of a main unit, a control display and an external antenna. The system is based on the Airwave (TETRA) network. If an emergency service, e.g. a police car, is nearby, you will be warned in advance with an acoustic and visual alert. The signal strength meter on the control display allows you to see at first glance whether an emergency vehicle is approaching you or moving away from you.
The communication system used by emergency services in your country generates two types of communication patterns. Target Blu Eye recognizes both patterns and produces two different acoustic signals. All signals indicate the presence of an emergency service close to you.
Besides acoustic warnings Target Blu Eye also generates visual warnings by means of the signal strength meter on the control display. If an emergency vehicle approaches you, regardless from which direction, the signal strength meter gives you an estimated indication about the distance between you and the emergency vehicle.
Two sensitivity modes can be selected on the Target Blu Eye control display:
- Highway mode: in this mode Target Blu Eye offers the highest sensitivity, which allows the system to recognize emergency services from a large distance.
- City mode: in this mode Target Blu Eye offers a lower sensitivity. This mode is recommended for use in urban areas.
The detection range of Target Blu Eye varies from hundreds of meters up to approximately one kilometre. The range depends on the selected sensitivity mode and the environment.
