Why don't RD manufacturers improve laser detection? Some of us Oz truckers were suggesting a few ideas based on all the misses we get (don't get alerts). The detector (Bel 995) is so high above the license plate (in the cab) that the beam never hits the laser sensor.
What about remote laser sensors in tiny housings (suction cup mount) with rechargeable batteries. The alerts are sent to the main unit by 'infrared' or 'radio' transmission. No messy wires please.
In a car you could mount one high and another low. Maybe a rear facing unit too. The coverage would be far better. How hard can this be with 'current' technology? The designers must be lazy or stupid.
Jammers (laser) are far too obvious. How about a tiny laser 'eye' (detect and transmit) that can be hidden in a headlight? It is wired back to a box in the engine bay - where it gets power. The warnings are sent by radio transmission to a receiver unit (battery powered) in the drivers pocket. No need to go through the firewall.
Is this too hard for all those brilliant radar / laser engineers - or am I nuts or something? :idea:
