Blind Zone Alert/Detection

Imaging Systems Technology (IST) has designed End of Line (EOL) test systems for a wide range of the industry leading radar sensors including Autoliv, Hella and Continental. These makers supply their sensors to automotive manufacturers including FIAT/Chrysler, GM, Chevrolet, Cadillac, Ford, Volvo, Daimler, Honda, BMW, Nissan and Kia.

Blind Spot Alert and Detection


Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and the Side Blind Zone Alert (SBZA) radar sensors help the driver safely pass other vehicles. The system uses two radar sensor modules that continuously monitor the presence, direction and speed of vehicles in the lanes around the vehicle. If a vehicle moves into the blind spot, a warning indicator lights up. If the driver doesn’t react to the indicator, an audio alarm goes off to provide additional warning.

What We Do

The IST Blind Zone Alert Sensor Test System is designed to test harness continuity, sensor functionality, part revision, software revision, serial number and communications. IST’s electrical and mechanical engineers can design and implement a complete testing and tracking system for your Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and the Side Blind Zone Alert (SBZA) radar sensors. Our engineers have experience with a range of communication protocols used in the automotive industry such as KWP (Key Word Protocol), CAN (Controller Area Network) and LIN (Local Interconnect Network).

Easy To Use

The IST Blind Zone Alert Sensor Test System can easily be configured to allow sensor hardware and software revisions. Using the parts configuration masking feature of IST’s EOL Test Software the system can test harnesses with differing numbers of sensors and lamps.

Part Tracking

The IST EOL SBZA Test Software saves all sensor revision data and communications status messages for each test that is completed. Using the built in database features available in the IST EOL Test Software any part tested can be viewed and verified.
