Why on Japanese cars from the plant put a beacon to the front bumper.


Perhaps some drivers have already managed to face an interesting decoration on some Japanese-antenna on bumper. Most of the car owners do not even have the concepts, why is there such a technology in general. I asked for my acquaintances, they know what kind of accessory it is.

Some answered that this was a special device, which, as they thought, transmits some signal. Others thought they were needed for fasteners of the flag.

And the third told that this is a kind of beacon, which is watching all the movements of the driver. However, in fact, such a design has a different purpose. That’s why I wanted to tell about it in more detail.

In general, the Japanese installed these antennas for a long time, so in our time to see this can be quite rare. As a rule, these are old cars, because this movement began in the early 90s. Moreover, such a device is installed mainly only on Japanese cars.

At the end of the 20th century, the Japanese strongly advanced in the field of mechanical engineering and began to produce cars in fairly large volumes. This is one of the reasons why there are so many cars in this country.

They managed to get all the streets, so that traffic jams, accidents and other problems with the movement occurred. Moreover, in those days, hefty sedans used in great demand.

Then the Japanese and thought, how to improve such a state of affairs. As a result, the special antennas were embarrassed, which in the dark will be highlighted, indicating the dimensions of the machine.

In addition, they made them retractable, that is, in order to calmly drive into some kind of narrowness, they could be quickly removed.

The light bulb, by the way, lights up with a machine, when the whole design is located outside and turns off the sam.
However, the Japanese quickly abandoned such a design. But why?

After all, it was probably so helped at night? The fact is that such antennas often broke up — they constantly moved during nomination, and the Motor himself worked it no matter.

In addition, they were laid out and taken to their house other children, which meant that once again you would have to drive your car to the service.

Such waste of funds did not suit many drivers, so they stopped buying such cars. Manufacturers have taken into account and stopped out the outlet with antennas. Parktronics came to replace them, but even now you can sometimes see these antennas on the bumpers of old Japanese cars.
