With millions of UK holiday makers now venturing further away in search of the summer sun, it is essential to take the necessary precautions when on the road. This is one of the reasons behind the launch of the innovative Safety Shield Technology, designed to make your driving experience as safe and worry free as possible!
The new Note has recently been developed with the technology, which was initially created to increase safety by lowering the number of accidents caused as a result of distractions drivers face on the road. The Safety Shield Technology’s 3 standout systems are designed to keep you as safe as possible:
- Blind Spot Warning – if you’re driving above 20 mph and a car is in your blind spot on either side of the Note, then a discreet light will come on to notify you. If you are using an indicator to change lanes then this light will illuminate brightly and an audible sound will be heard in the car.
- Land Departure Warning - If you are driving above 45 mph the Lane Departure Warning System will warn you if you start drifting out of lane. This system can pick up the faintest of road markings and will cleverly adjust the sensitivity when driving on rural roads to adapt to different driving styles
- Moving Object Detection – This system will give you a visual and audible alert should anything or anyone be moving around your car, whether this is another vehicle or a small child.
Before the Safety Shield Technology was released to the public, specialist engineers spent thousands of hours and over 100,000 km testing the software to ensure any faults were ironed out.
The intelligent design also incorporates advanced algorithms that will only allow it the alert to sound if the manoeuvre wasn’t deliberate.
