Hands-On Review: INNOVV ThirdEYE Blind Spot Detection System

*This article is from www.webbikeworld.com. 

Review Summary

  • INNOVV Tech makes top-quality technology products for motorcycles.
  • The ThirdEYE provides blind spot detection, lane change assistance, and rear collision warning.
  • If you love having the latest technology on your bike this is for you.
  • The system works very well, but isn’t perfect and not for every rider.

Introducing the INNOVV ThirdEYE BSD System

The automotive world has been working on the development of blind spot detection systems for several years, and back in 2019, Rock Liu the man behind INNOVV Tech, recognized the safety advantage these devices were having to the cager crowd yet nothing like it was available to the motorcycling world.

Engineering difficulties surfaced as soon as automotive technology was investigated. Typically in cars, the BSD system consists of two millimeter-wave radars operating at 24GHz. Although the system’s brains were reduced in size to a motorcycle-friendly size by INNOVV Tech, the radar system’s detecting range was only 6–10 meters. The radar detected a possible accident less than a second after a car approached the motorcycle from behind at a speed of forty km/h quicker. Although this fast reaction time is the industry norm for cars, it seriously jeopardizes rider safety.

INNOVV Tech has a reputation for building high-quality products, and that is certainly evident with the ThirdEYE BSD System I tested.

INNOVV ThirdEYE BSD – The Tech

The Radar

INNOVV explored the 24GHz radar, they also tried laser systems, but both had issues with range and with false positives in the target zones. Fortunately, the development of new technology led to the availability of 77GHz radar. This technology offered significant advantages

Firstly, a single radar could divide the detection range into left, right, and middle directions.   Secondly, the detection range could extend up to 50 meters, even with a small antenna. This provides riders with ample time (4.5 seconds calculated as 50 meters divided by the speed difference of 40 km/h converted to meters per second) to take appropriate action.
