Blackburn-based Vehicle safety specialist, Vision Techniques, is pioneering an incredible reversing radar system – designed to prevent all types of reversing accidents while minimising false alarms.
A quarter of all deaths involving vehicles at work occur when reversing cameras are not installed – according to government research – and many other reversing accidents cause costly damage to vehicles and equipment.
The idea of the new system, ‘VMS Reversing Radar’, is to prevent this by emitting an alarm if vehicles get too close to objects.
If the signals are ignored – VMS will automatically apply the brakes.
Local authorities and vehicle manufacturers have hailed the reversing radar as revolutionary.
