Limitations of Collision Warning Systems
The VORAD Side Object Detection System is intended solely as an aid for an
alert and conscientious professional driver. It is not to be used or relied upon
to operate a vehicle. The system should be used in conjuction with rear view
mirrors and other instrumentation to maintain safe operation. A vehicle
equipped with this system should be operated in the same safe manner as if it
were not installed. The system is not a substitute for normal safe driving procedures. It will not compensate for any driver impairment, such as drugs,
alcohol, or fatigue.
The VORAD Side Object Detection System may provide little or no warning for
some hazards, such as pedestrians, animals, oncoming vehicles, and cross
traffic.

System Overview
Product Description
The VORAD Side Object Detection System is a pulse-modulated radar system
capable of detecting the presence of other vehicles along side of the host vehicle, aiding the driver’s ability to avoid collisions while merging into adjacent
lanes of traffic.
A visual indicator, placed on the windshield pillar near the side view mirror
provides the driver with an additional tool for checking lane clearance next to
the vehicle before merging. When the driver signals to change lanes by activating the vehicle’s turn signal, the system will provide an audible tone along
with a visual indication, warning the driver that the lane next to the vehicle is
not clear.
The VORAD Side Object Detection System is typically installed on the side
opposite the driver, but can be installed on both sides of the vehicle as well.
Note: Up to four sensors can be daisy chained to a single disply unit for applications that require an increased area of detection. Contact your OEM
parts dealer for information on purchasing additional sensors, brackets,
and harnessing.

System Operation
System Operation
The VORAD Side Object Detection System is powered by the vehicle's ignition
switch, and consists of a pulse-modulated radar sensor mounted to the side
of the vehicle coupled to a cab mounted display unit, that constantly monitors
the area within the radar's view for any objects present that may pose a collision hazard during a lane change.
The pulse-modulated radar utilized in the VORAD Side Object Detection System will detect objects, stationary or moving, while the vehicle is in motion or
stopped. The radar's effective range is approximately ten feet from the center
view of the sensor.
3
System Operation
Side Object Detection Display
The display unit has two bright LED indicators used to display the system status. A yellow LED indicates when the system is active, and a red LED indicates
an object is detected. An ambient light sensor automatically controls the intensity of the two status LEDs, dimming them in low light conditions.
The display unit's built-in speaker provides an audible alert if an object is
detected when the vehicle's turn signal is activated. A button located on the
front of the display allows the driver to adjust the volume level.

Ambient Light Sensor
Yellow Power / Standby Indicator
System Failure
If the system detects a failure and becomes inoperative, the display unit will
warn the driver by continuously illuminating both the red and yellow LEDs at
the same time.
Refer to the troubleshooting section for more information about system failure

Installation Procedure
Sensor Location
The Side Object Detection Sensor should be mounted on the side of the vehicle, between 22 and 36 inches from the ground and at least 18 inches rear of
the side view mirror (see diagram below).
Note: To reduce the possibility of the sensor detecting objects mounted to the
vehicle like the steps or fuel tanks, make sure the face of the sensor
extends out a minimum of 5/16 of an inch further than any other object
within six inches of the sensor's body.
5
Installation Procedure
Sensor Orientation
The Side Object Detection Sensor should be orientated so the embossed logo
is parallel to the ground (see diagrams below). Orientation is crucial for proper
operation due to the radar's polarized beam profile.
6
Installation Procedure
Mounting the Sensor
The sensor should be mounted to the vehicle using 10-24 (6 mm) stainless
steel hardware. Bolts should be installed from the sensor side, with flat washers and nylock nuts on the backside.
Torque hardware to a maximum of 22 lbs. in. Do not over torque.
7
Installation Procedure
Side Object Display Mounting
The Side Object Detection Display Unit should be mounted on the inside of the
cab to the windshield pillar. The display unit should be positioned in line with
the side view mirror on the same side of the vehicle as the sensor without
obstructing the driver's view.
WARNING
The Side Object Display unit is not weather proof and must be mounted on the
inside of the cab. Failure to observe this warning will result in a void of warranty.
Vehicles with dual left and right side sensors will have a display mounted on
both the left and right windshield pillars.

2.
Before testing the system, move the vehicle to an area where there
are no objects within a minimum of a 15-foot radius of the sensor.
Turn the vehicle's ignition to the on position.
WARNING
Observe proper safety procedures by making sure the vehicle's parking brakes
are set and the engine is off before performing any tests.
3.
Observe the side sensor display unit's red and yellow indicators and
refer to the table below for proper power-up and system operation.
Have an assistant walk within ten feet of the front of the sensor to
test for object detection.

To test the audible warning, activate the turn signal while testing the
object detection. The warning tone is only heard once for each activation of the turn signal.
If the red and yellow LEDs remain on continuously for more than five
seconds after the initial power-up, this is an indication the system
has detected a failure. Refer to the troubleshooting section for more
information.
12
Operation Testing
Testing Sensor Detection
To test the sensor's maximum effective detection capabilities, use a flat metallic object with a minimum surface area of one square foot, and hold it facing
the sensor at the following positions using the diagram below as a reference.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Six feet out from center.
Six feet out, six feet left from center.
Six feet out, six feet right from center.
Ten feet from center (maximum effective distance).
The effective detection zone of the sensor can be drawn as a ten-foot arc, +/45 degrees from center. The sensor may detect objects beyond this zone,
shown in dark grey above, but should not be considered reliable.
Note: The ability of the sensor to detect objects in its effective detection zone
depends on the object's size, composition, and it ability to reflect electromagnetic energy.
13
Troubleshooting
System Fault Indication
If both the red and yellow LED's remain illuminated continuously after five
seconds of initial power-up, or anytime during normal operation, this is an
indication that the system has detected a failure with the radar sensor or a
loss of communications between the sensor and the side sensor display.
1.
2.
3.
Disconnect the sensor and the side object display from the harness
and check the connectors for corrosion, or damage to the harness.
Using an ohm meter, check the harness for a short to ground by testing the resistance from J1 Pin 3 and J2 Pin 3 to chassis ground. This
reading should be greater than 100K ohms or infinite.
Using an ohm meter, check the communications link between the
sensor and the side object display for continuity by testing the resistance from J1 Pin 3 to J2 Pin 3 (see diagram below) This reading
should be less than 0.9 ohms.
14
Troubleshooting
Red Detection LED Remains On
If after the initial five second system power-up test, the red detect indicator
remains illuminated constantly, even when no objects are present in the radar
sensors detection zone, either the radar sensor is improperly mounted or has
malfunctioned.
1.
2.

Review the sensor installation section in this manual to verify proper
sensor positioning, orientation, and mounting.
Make sure there are no other surfaces or objects on the vehicle, like
steps, fuel tanks, mirrors, that extend beyond the face of the radar
sensor that may be interfering with the sensor's operation.
Remove the sensor from the vehicle and inspect it for any damage.
Inspect the connector for any signs of damage or corrosion.
Connect the sensor to the harness and hold it away from the vehicle
into an open area away from any objects. Power up the system and
check for proper operation.
Troubleshooting
No Objects Detected
If after the initial system power-up, the sensor does not appear to detect any
objects, the radar sensor may have malfunctioned. Refer to the Testing System Operation section in this manual.
1.
2.
3.
Hold and aim a test object six feet out from center, directly at the
sensor, and verify if the side object display indicates the object has
been detected.
Continuing to hold the test object six feet from the sensor, refer to
the diagram below and move six feet to the right and then to the left
of center from the sensor, keeping the test object positioned directly
at the face of the sensor. Verify if the side object display indicates the
object has been detected in both extreme positions.
Hold and aim the test object ten feet out from center, directly at the
sensor, and verify if the side object display indicates the object has
been detected.
16
Troubleshooting
No Audible Tone
When an object is detected while the vehicle's turn signal is active, but the
side object display does not emit an audible tone, either the system is improperly wired or the side object display has malfunctioned.
17
1.
With the vehicle's ignition switch in the off position, disconnect the
display connector (J1) and use an ohmmeter to test the continuity
between pin 1 and the turn signal source point.
2.
Turn the vehicle's ignition switch to the on position and activate the
vehicle's turn signal, on the same side of the vehicle the side object
sensor is located, and use a volt meter to check for the turn signal
voltage between pins 2 and 4.
Troubleshooting
System Does Not Power-Up
When the vehicle's ignition switch is turned to the on position and the side
object display fails to power-up, either the system's fuse has blown, the harness is wired improperly or damaged, or the system has malfunctioned.
1.
2.
Check the system's inline one amp fuse.
With the vehicle's ignition switch in the off position, disconnect the
sensor connector (J2). Use a voltmeter to test for ignition voltage
between pins 1 and 2. Check the connector pins for corrosion or
damage.
3.
Re-connect the sensor connector (J2) to the harness and then disconnect the display connector (J1). Use a voltmeter to test for ignition voltage between pins 1 and 2 at the display connector. Check the
connector pins for corrosion or damage.
