The body of trucks and other large vehicles is long and when the vehicle turns a corner, the cab could turn immediately, but the body cannot, creating a blind area at the differential inner wheel that can become a ‘killer’. In order to solve this problem, we designed a cornering lamp that could identify the differential inner wheel. A temperature sensor in the safety turn lamp can detect heat in the inner wheel region when the vehicle is turning. At the same time, the safety turn lamp switches on to warn other road users to avoid the danger and the driver is also reminded to take extra care.
