Target Blu Eye: an eye for safety
Warns you of approaching emergency services
such as marked and unmarked police cars, ambulances and fire engines
Target Blu Eye is a unique and worldwide patented traffic safety system that warns you in advance of approaching emergency service vehicles. In the UK all the emergency services use Tetra radios and Target Blu Eye will let you know when they are close come day or night. So whilst driving at night, even if the emergency vehicle is not using their lights or sirens, Target Blue will alert you of their presence up to a kilometre radius.
Target Blu Eye uses both visual and audible warnings to let you know what’s out there. Within seconds of an emergency vehicle being in the radius, the signal will be activated and the signal strength meter in your vehicle will give you enough warning allowing you move safely out of the way.
Due to Target Blu Eye you will increase your own safety, the safety of other drivers and the safety of the emergency service vehicles and personnel
How does it work?
Target Blu Eye is based on TETRA technology, in the UK it is known as the Airwave Network which is widely used for the communication between different emergency services. Due to this highly advanced technology, Target Blu Eye is able to warn you in advance of approaching emergency services, such as:
IS IT LEGAL?Yes, the use of Target Blu Eye is legal since the system is only informing the driver whether an emergency service vehicle is nearby. Moreover, Target Blu Eye cannot differentiate between police vehicles, ambulances or fire engines. You will be warned of all types of emergency vehicles in the same way.
We would like to emphasize that Target Blu Eye is not able to decode the radio messages broadcasted by the Airwave network.
OFFICIAL STATEMENT TARGET AUTOMOTIVE B.V."Target Blu Eye is a TETRA radio receiver, not a police detector"
- Dipole Antenna
- Power Lead
- Control Box
- Display Unit
The Tetra network for emergency services is also used in The Netherlands, Belgium, Croatia, Germany (nationwide in 2014), Austria, Scandinavia, Slovenia, Spain, Portugal, Hungary and Italy. Coverage is variable and cannot be guaranteed and may be regional.
No, because, emergency services use different frequencies. Therefore Target Blu Eye does not recognise signals for civil use.
The detection range of Target Blu Eye varies from hundreds of metres to approximately one kilometre. The range also depends on the selected sensitivity mode and the environment as well as the type and location of the antenna.
All signals transmitted by emergency services will be detected by the Target Blu Eye. However, emergency services do not always transmit (periodical) signals. The Tetra radio can be switched off or be in direct mode (DMO).
Statistics showed that in 2012 the UK 2,015 casualties were related to accidents where police vehicles had been involved. In the period 2007-2012, 137 fatalities were registered due to accidents with police cars.

"Absolutely awesome product. If you also do a lot of motorway miles then trust me when I say this is a must have product.
The number of unmarked emergency service vehicles is simply insane. I was driving on the M25 last week and the system started going off, so I started to look around. Driving next to me was two officers in an old Ford KA. How amazing. How Awesome." My Story - J Smith.
