Capp and his team of engineers, inventors and futurists have developed life-saving active safety technologies that are already in place on the 2010 Cadillac STS Platinum, including:

-Lane departure warning -- a camera-based lane detection system that warns drivers when they leave their lane without signaling. The camera, mounted near the inside rearview mirror, identifies traffic lane markings and provides audible alerts

-Blind spot alert -- twin radar beacons that detect an object in a vehicle's blind zone and provide a visual warning in the outside side mirror

-Adaptive cruise control -- sensors detect objects in a vehicle's path and slow the vehicle down to avoid a collision.

Would you be interested in using this technology in your fleet?  Leave a comment and let us know.
