ENGLEWOOD, Fla., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative Technology of America, of Champaign, Illinois, has become the newest licensee of the Safety Warning System(R) (SWS), the exciting new microwave-based driver alert technology. The company specializes in producing Safety Warning System(R) transmitters for utility crews, school zones, school buses and slow-moving vehicles. SWS transmitters can generate any of 64 different text messages in SWS receivers, allowing drivers to know exactly what type of hazard, special traffic condition or roadside service they are approaching. Approximately 15 million of the receivers-mainly SWS-enhanced radar detectors-have been sold since 1996. Innovative Technology of America was formed in 1998 to develop, produce and sell safety transmitters. The company believes the most effective way of warning drivers of nearby hazards is inside their vehicles rather than with more signs, flashing lights and message boards alongside the road. The Safety Warning System(R) is the ideal tool for accomplishing this goal. Innovative Technology of America is concentrating on four types of dedicated SWS transmitters that have a range of 3,000 feet, while those for use by utility crews, in school zones and by slow-moving vehicles, such as garbage trucks and agricultural machinery, also are available in models with a two-mile range for rural areas. Messages seen by drivers using SWS receivers include "Utility Work Crew Ahead," "School Zone Ahead," "School Bus Loading/Unloading" and "Slow Moving Vehicle." "We are very pleased to have Innovative Technology of America join the Safety Warning System(R) family," commented Janice Lee, president of Safety Warning System, L.C., the organization that oversees development of the technology. "Work crews, schools and slow-moving vehicles all present important traffic safety problems that will be addressed by Innovative Technology's products." Innovative Technology joins MPH Industries in manufacturing SWS transmitters. Some 200 transmitters are in use in 33 states. In addition to its member companies, Escort, Uniden and Whistler, BG Tech and SK Global are licensed manufacturers of SWS receivers in the United States.
