Curve blind spot warning / 1.01 Automobiles/Vehicles/Bike

Curve blind spot warning
Curve blind spot warning

Accidents often take place where there is dead zone in the curve mountain road. The traditional solution -- “convex mirror”, still has many problems.
Place an infrared detector at both ends of the curve road -- the visual dead zone. When there are cars going to meet from opposition directions, “the alarm system” -- infrared mirror begins to work. Meanwhile, the alarm light at the turning will spin continuously sparkling yellow light, which can warn the driver to be alert efficiently and watch out for the coming car. (When there is only one car driving on the curve road, the alarm system won’t work, for there is no danger for collision.)
