VT StopSafe: Emergency Braking

This patented system is the only emergency braking system to be approved by the VCA.

VT StopSafe allows the crew to react quickly to an emergency situation allowing them to bring the vehicle to a controlled stop should the driver become incapacitated.

In the event of an emergency should the driver lose their ability to control the vehicle, the system lever can be activated by the crew to bring the vehicle to a controlled stop. The lever needs to be constantly applied for the system to work, so there is no risk of accidental use.

Once the system is activated it uses pulse/cadence braking to the brake valve and limits the revs from the accelerator pedal to bring the vehicle to a controlled stop within a matter of seconds with no skidding, swerving or lock up.

Once STOPSAFE has brought the vehicle to a halt, the park brake is locked into a closed position and restricts any forward movement.

How It Works

VT StopSafe: Emergency Stopping System

Emergency Situation

Pulling the lever reduces the vehicles speed and applies the brake for a controlled stop. The lever needs to be constantly applied for the system to react, so there is no risk of accidental use.

Controlled Stop

Once the system is activated it uses pulse braking, (cadence breaking) to the brake valve and limits the revs from the accelerator pedal to bring the vehicle to a controlled stop in a matter of seconds with no skidding, swerving or lock up.

Once the system is activated and brings the vehicle to a halt, the park brake valve is locked into a closed position and restricts any forward movement.

Full Control

The activation lever defaults to normal state (off). If the system is inadvertently triggered the driver can depress the override button to disable the system.

Audible and Visual Alarms

Secondary brake lights and audible alarms alert pedestrians of the approaching hazard.

Retro Fit

Universal design works with all vehicles regardless of age or manufacturer and can be retro fitted to any vehicle.

Integration

Combine with VT Record or VT FMS telematics to instantly review activations and make informed decisions quickly to improve the safety of your fleet.

Certification

The only system on the market approved by the VCA that can prevent the risk of an out of control vehicle by giving the crew control of the vehicle in the event of an emergency.
