It’s happened to us all. We are exhausted, our minds are preoccupied, so we park the car and head in forgetting that we have left something important in the backseat. If you are lucky, that thing would be groceries or your briefcase. If you are not, it could be your dog or your baby. That is why Nissan invented the Rear Door Alert technology.

Actually, the RDA was invented by a pair of Nissan engineers, who are also mothers. This is not something that would have occurred to a guy, because as far as we’re concerned an automobile consists of the engine and the steering wheel, and that’s it. So these mother picked up the slack and came up with the Rear Door Alert Technology which utilizes door sequence logic, center instrument panel message display and industry-first multiple horn honks to help remind drivers to check the rear seat after the vehicle is parked.

“The idea is if you open a rear door, whether to put a child or a package in the rear seat, the vehicle will help alert you when you get to your destination that you may want to check the rear seat,” said Marlene Mendoza, a mechanical engineer and mother of three. “We’ve built in enough time that you don’t have to rush, but if you don’t open the rear door again when you get out of the vehicle, we want you to think for a moment about what you may have put in the back seat.”
