TROY, MI --- Iteris Inc. has been named the exclusive distributor of Delphi's forward collision warning system for North American commercial vehicles.

Iteris said it will use its commercial truck OEM and aftermarket sales channels and application engineering expertise to integrate Delphi's radar-based technology into its product portfolio for heavy truck customers. Iteris will also be authorized to sell Delphi's Side Alert blind spot warning system in North America.

Delphi has more than 35 years of experience in developing and manufacturing passive and active safety systems. Delphi began developing active safety more than 20 years ago and was one of the first suppliers to launch a radar-based adaptive cruise control system in 1999.

Using the same radar platform, Delphi has continued to add features and functionality to its system including forward collision warning. Additionally, Delphi's Side Alert blind spot detection system helps alert drivers of heavy truck drivers of vehicles in their side blind spots when changing lanes.
