MINIATURE ACOUSTIC TRANSMITTER/RECEIVER
The Micro 4
series Reversing Aid’s miniature acoustic sensors
transmit a uniquely modified "narrow beam"
signal. This narrow beam signal is capable of seeing
through fog, rain, smog and snow, any weather, day or
night, on any road condition. When this signal strikes
a solid target "directly" in the path of the
host vehicle, it bounces back to the antenna/receiver
and is instantly sent to the signal "Microprocessor".
The acoustic sensors have a detection range of up to
8 feet. The design of the sensors coupled with the color
matching decorative sensor lenses ensures their ‘out-of-sight’
installation on your vehicle.
8-BIT SIGNAL MICRO PROCESSOR
The 8-bit Micro
processor programmed with ‘Intelligent Control
Software’ incorporating ‘fuzzy logic’
processes the target signal to calculate distance or
range, as well as the closing speed between the host
vehicle and the obstacles in the path of the host vehicle.
The processor automatically and continuously computes
this information. If the processor determines that the
existing conditions require the driver to take any precautionary
or corrective action, special emergency sounds are generated.
The Micro 4
series speaker can be mounted anywhere inside the passenger
compartment of the vehicle. The unit comes with an adjustable
volume control. The system is activated when the driver
puts the vehicle into reverse. The system alerts the
driver with a variable multi-tone audio pulse. The audio
pulse intensity increases and the audio tone changes
as the vehicle backs closer to an obstacle. In addition
to the variable multi-tone audio pulse, the system alerts
the driver with our advance VDI (Voice Distance Indicator)
module. The VDI module verbally tells the driver the
vehicle-to-obstacle distance in feet and inches. It
actually talks to the driver.

The Micro series
Reversing Aid is designed for easy installation. An
experienced installer will be able to install the system
into any vehicle in about 90 minutes. Some minor drilling
could be required on the plastic part of the bumper
and in the taillight well. Most of the necessary parts
and components for the installation are included in
the system package.
Step 1: Install
sensors on back of vehicle such as on the bumper or
on the rear panel.
Step 2: Wire system
to reverse lamp wire and mount power unit in trunk or
Step 3: Install
speaker in passenger compartment by the radio speakers
or on the side panel.
an installer will need are a pair of pliers and the
proper screw driver to get access to the reverse light
power and ground. For a more professional installation,
a drill may be needed.
