back-up sensor

Post by codguy » June 5th 2019, 3:17am

forwarded to me....

I'll bet you didn't know this!
Many of the newer cars have a "Back-Up Sensor" that warns the driver before the rear bumper actually comes in contact with something.
Who invented this sensor?
I'll bet you think it was Ford, maybe GM; how about Chrysler?
No? Then how about Mercedes Benz, or possibly the French or Italian car manufacturers?
No, it was a Japanese farmer by the name of Kawasaki. His invention was simple and effective.
It emits a high-pitch squeal before the vehicle backs into something.
Here's his first prototype...

Lol, I was watching YouTube reviews of the Tesla model 3, tempting at its price point, where the backup camera tells you how many inches away from the object /parking stall end you are while backing up.
