Volvo Trucks is new distribution partner for the EYYES intelligent blind-spot assistent
As a new sales partner, Volvo Trucks Austria relies on the EYYES turn-off assistant. The performance and reliability of the system were tested by the ADAC in a recent comprehensive test. The CarEye® Safety Angle emerged as the clear winner in the comparison of all well-known products. The turn-off assistant from EYYES was able to convince with the largest detection range and the best suitability for everyday use in real traffic situations.

“At Volvo Trucks, we focus on maximum safety. We have subjected the system to extensive practical testing with our customer TransHohl Ges.m.b.H and are now convinced that it is currently the best system available on the market. That is why we are now offering the turn-off assistance test winner from EYYES at all Volvo Trucks service points,” confirms Michael Marek, workshop manager at the Volvo Group Truck Center Tribuswinkel.
The CarEye® Safety Angle (CSA for short) from EYYES is able to unerringly detect and predict the direction of movement of pedestrians, cyclists and objects. It warns the driver acoustically and visually in real time before a possible collision occurs and remains operational even in the most adverse light and weather conditions. At the same time, false alarms are minimised because the system detects people and cyclists and only triggers an alarm if there is a real risk of collision.
“This is made possible by the use of state-of-the-art artificial intelligence (AI) based on neural networks (deep learning). With AI, we unerringly detect pedestrians and cyclists, even in the second row behind parked cars. Furthermore, we cover a monitoring area of up to 10m length x 6m width next to the vehicle as a blind spot area. This is far more than is currently required by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). This clearly sets our system apart from all others on the market,” explains EYYES Managing Director Dr. Wolfgang Domann.
The system can be retrofitted for all vehicles and can be easily installed in the workshop responsible for the customer. After thorough testing, the company TransHohl Ges.m.b.H decided to equip its fleet with the EYYES turn-off assistance system in the future.
“We have already tested many turn assistance systems, the system from EYYES warns accurately and does not cause any false alarms. We are very satisfied with the system,” confirms the driver of the vehicle Günter Baumgartner of the company as well as Rafael Hohl, the managing director and owner of TransHohl Ges.m.b.H.
