Hello and welcome to our first blog post of 2018 here at Dent Magnet. We would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that the year has got off to a grand old start for you. Today we thought we would share with you information about the new SHAKE (Structural Health & Knock Emission)sensor technology which has been created by HELLA in the USA., which we think is a very cool innovation.
3 Different Detection Functions
We read about SHAKE in an article in the Business Insider today (you can read the full article at the link provided if you wish) and in the article they pointed out the 3 different detection functions of the technology:
- Intelligent Damage Detection: detects the severity, time and place of vehicle damage. It then records the incidents to create damage reports for owners and mobility companies, who may use autonomous vehicles in car-sharing applications.
- Adaptive Impact Detection: uses two sensors, located on the front and rear of vehicles, to detect the slightest touches of cars or pedestrians to the vehicle’s bumpers at speeds up to approximately 12 mph. The sensors also can trigger a signal to stop vehicles to prevent further damage, and detect contact and perform an emergency stop if any collision with obstructions occurs during parking.
- Smart Touch Detection: offers drivers individual convenience and safety features by allowing them to control autonomous vehicles with the touch of their hand.
Clever New Technology
This is such clever technology and now, with the advent of automated cars, there will be more and more technology like this being produced by these forward thinking companies.
But of course at present there is still a need for our services here at Dent Magnet, in fact as our towns and cities get ever more populated by vehicles we are seeing more and more dents on cars.
