Car door doppler alert

Did you look ?

Built into the door itself, a doppler range/velocity detector pointing towards the rear of the vehicle which is activated when the door starts to open. If the system detects an object (car, truck) approaching on a vector that intersects with the door, an alarm sounds.

If it detects a cyclist, a "Wait for it ... wait for it ... NOW !" recording is played.

That's it.

       An inefficient and expensive replacement for a door mirror.   

       Perfect. [+]
