The current levels of demand place on today's HGV driver have never been higher, due to the requirement to monitor a range of cab safety & security systems and a whole plethora of other in-cab technology.
Unfortunately, it's all too easy to forget the basic essentials such as applying the parking brake - a problem that becomes more serious if a trailer is coupled.
VT BrakeSafe will prevent this dangerous and possibly fatal event by automatically applying the brake if the vehicle operator forgets to and then attempts to leave the vehicle. A voice warning will also give instructions to apply the brake and reset the system.
One of the best features ofVT Brake Safe is that it is autonomous-the driver doesn't have to press, look or interact with the safety system at all when driving. However, if they were to forget to apply the brake and then leave the vehicle, the system would automatically take control - even with the ignition off - eliminating any risk of vehicle rollaway and preventing unthinkable fatal accidents.
