It’s always safety first in Daimler Buses. Of course, this does not just apply to new vehicles. In order to update existing vehicles with the latest technology, the servicing brand OMNIplus also offers retrofitting options for Setra buses and coaches. And these also include currently relevant topics such as blind-spot assistance systems.
The turning assistant supports the driver above all when turning towards the door side, by making them aware of other road users and warning of any danger of collision. The retrofit with this blind-spot assistance system is possible from year of manufacture 2010 and can be applied to the accessible Setra LE business models. For older vehicles, we can check if the retrofit is possible on request.

The "Retrofit of Blind Spot Assist" offer from OMNIplus involves retrofitting with a radar-supported system. These systems have achieved the best results in terms of road safety in internal Daimler tests and ADAC inspection. Both in trials on test grounds and in real-life road use, it has been demonstrated that radar systems offer the best possible safety particularly in situations of poor visibility – eg. at night, in bad weather conditions or fog.
