Radar reversing system from Sentinel promotes vehicle safety

Sentinel Systems developed patented radar reversing safety systems after statistics showed that reversing accounts for nearly one-in-four deaths involving vehicles at work. The system limits risk from legal claims for death or serious injury, or damage to property caused by reversing vehicles.

A radar sensor is fitted to the rear of the tanker. When reverse gear is engaged this sensor searches for hazards.  If a hazard is detected the system automatically applies the brakes if the vehicle gets too close to the hazard. The full brake application is available via the parking brake airline or directly with the EBS system. A passive non-braking system is also available where a visual and audible warning is provided to the driver on detection of the hazard. This can be combined with the auto-braking system.

Walker Municipal Services based inDublinhas been appointed as sole agent for the system inIreland.

Andrew Holder, marketing manager for Sentinel Systems said: “It is easy for tanker drivers to get distracted while reversing and accidents can occur. With this system if an obstacle is detected brakes are automatically applied and damage and serious injury are avoided. Tanker operators can save thousands on legal claims.”

Over the past 20 years, over 3,000 vehicles have benefited from these radar auto-braking systems. Sentinel Systems offers its own on-site installation service or training
