Well this idea sounds good to us normal dummies until you really get into it and do a bit of research. There are a lot of people in this world and a lot of ideas. This one has been thought of and even tried. It will not fly, this dog will not hunt.
I have an friend the is one of the development engineers for Hummingbird depth finders and sonar location devices. I had not seen him for two years as one does get out of touch and I have not participated in many bass tournaments like I used to, but I gave him a call this morning.
It is all a good idea, and in fact some things have been designed and used by researchers in many ways, for example one is to make surveys of existing deer populations while flying around in a chopper. Both sonar and heat devices are currently used for this.
Thing is bottom line to keep a long story short, a deer can appear almost instantly from a roadside depression, or ditch or from behind bushes or an obstruction and therefore the warning system would not work well. If such a system were put on the market, it is his feelings that it would be lawsuit city. Someone would rely on it, and when it did not work then the lawsuits would be the next complication.
So in the design and production of products, there is always the public factor. How will the public perceive this and how will the public react. What kind of liability is garnered by the production of a product. That is a main concern with any product.
I have simply found out it has been discussed, looked at and rejected by folks much smarter than I.
As a deer can appear, as I well know from personal experience, almost instantly, just all of a sudden there it is, I fully understand what he is telling me. No device can or could sense the impossible.
The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.
