Dramatically reduce collisions with our warning only radar system
Specifically designed for off-highway mobile plant, this state of the art programmable radar system detects moving and stationary objects with 100% accuracy. The in-cab visual and audible alarms alert the driver of obstacles giving enough time to react. Therefore, significantly reducing the risk of collision
VT Sensorvision is recognised by industry leaders and our radars have been Winners of PAWRS – Health and Safety Innovation Award and SKANSKA – Care for Life Award.
WHY VT SENSORVISION?
The UK has one of the lowest workplace fatality rates across the EU, however, the rate of fatal injury in construction is around four times higher than any other industry. Being struck by a moving vehicle is the second most common cause, accounting for 30 fatal injuries in 2017/18. (HSE annual statistics)
Industries such as quarrying, mineral processing, construction and agriculture are heavily reliant on large machines and vehicles, due to their sheer size and driver position blind spots are much larger on these vehicles, restricting the operator’s view. Dark mornings, night working, wet or icy conditions, fog and snowstorms puts workers in danger of becoming ‘invisible’ in drivers’ blind spots, combine this with wearing ear defenders further restricting their ability to hear oncoming vehicles, increases the risk of an incident. Prevention is key to reducing risk as with every accident there is a chance of injury and trauma, as well as financial loss, downtime and reputational damage.
Although camera and monitor systems provide drivers with an invaluable visual aid to the surroundings of the vehicle, in difficult conditions, VT SENSORVISION is designed to provide protection by giving the driver vital visual and audible signals warning them of potential collisions and draw the drivers attention to the reversing camera.
HOW IT WORKS
Our radars have been developed using state of the art FMCW technology (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) for 100% accurate detection. Whether you require reverse or forward detection we can tailor the system to suit. The radar can be programmed with customised detection patterns tailored to suit your vehicle or application and is able to detect hazards up to 25m from the position of the radar.
VT SENSORVISION recognises objects that have entered into the programmable fields which are set up into three detection zones when an object has been detected, the driver is given three distinct warnings via in-cab visual and audible alarms that increase with intensity the closer the hazard gets to the vehicle, giving the driver ample time to react.
The implementation of speed and direction sensing makes unwanted and annoying false alarms a thing of the past and ultimately creating the safest radar system on the market.
Industry proved for over 25 years this robust piece of safety equipment, complete with a heavy-duty stainless steel radar head is unaffected by moisture, dust, vibration, heat, cold, UV, snow, ice, high wind, water and mud.
