CLEVELAND --- Mobile Awareness LLC, a provider of transportation safety products, has introduced VisionStat Plus, a commercial-grade system designed to prevent backing accidents. 

VisionStat Plus offers an integrated version of the company's SenseStat Obstacle Detection Sensor System that connects directly with Mobile Awareness' wired VisionStat Camera System. No additional cabling is required. 

VisionStat Plus is an "advanced safety solution which combines two technologies to aid in the prevention of costly backing accidents," the company said. "Utilizing a leading-edge obstacle detection sensor system (SenseStat), which is displayed on a backing camera video monitor (VisionStat), the driver is provided both audible and visual information when an obstacle is detected in the rear of the vehicle." 

The system shows the driver what's behind the vehicle, via a CCD camera, and provides the distance of objects from four sensor zones. The driver sees the exact distance (accurate to one inch) to the closest object on the monitor. 

SenseStat monitors all four zones simultaneously, indicating the area closest to an object or person. The VisionStat video system is available with either a 5.6-inch or 7-inch color LCD monitor that's configurable with up to four infrared night vision CCD cameras. 

VisionStat Plus integrates the SenseStat Obstacle Detection Sensor System directly into the VisionStat Camera System, with no additional wiring required. 

"Mobile Awareness continues to see an increasing demand among fleets for more flexible, effective and affordable safety systems," said Brandon Stotsenburg, vice president of sales and marketing at Mobile Awareness. "By developing VisionStat Plus, we continue our commitment to provide easy-to-install, cost-effective and technically advanced solutions for enhanced vehicle safety."
