Why Ultrasonic Sensors

Reducing blind spots and improving driver visibility are important issues for operators of road-going vehicles. Over the past few years, safety devices such as additional mirrors or camera systems that give wider viewing angles have become commonplace and even mandatory under blind spot legislation. However, despite an increase in visibility, collisions with other vehicles, fixed objects, cyclists, workers and even pedestrians, remain high.
Brigade’s ultrasonic proximity sensors minimise both vehicle damage and collisions with pedestrians, cyclists or objects. Perfect for road-going commercial vehicles operating in confined spaces or manoeuvring at low speed. The detection system alerts the driver of obstacles close to the vehicle, whether moving or stationary. An audible and/or visual in-cab warning informs of distance whilst an optional external speaking alarm can be added to alert cyclists and pedestrians that the vehicle is turning.

 

Compliance

Compliant with CLOCS, FORS and construction companies who require commercial vehicles to meet specific safety specifications.
Vinsitesafe’s range of ultrasonic sensor systems include;

Backscan®, Frontscan®, Sidescan®, Cornerscan™ and Stepscan™.

  • Gives peace of mind to the driver
  • Greater protection to pedestrians, cyclists and workers
  • Minimises damage to vehicle, property and other objects
