Reverse Smart Radar Auto Brake

Doctor Air-Brake Stand: RA14

A pivotal addition to safety measures is Radar Auto Braking. The Doctor Air-Brake Reverse Smart system represents an indispensable asset. It stands as a necessity across various sectors and industries, proving highly suitable for any business operating heavy goods vehicles (HGVs). Whether it's road sweepers, refuse vehicles, tarmac rollers, plant vehicles, or standard trucks and trailers, this system offers invaluable benefits.

At its core, the system integrates radar auto braking technology, fundamentally transforming safety outcomes. By detecting objects within its configurable danger zone, the system promptly alerts the driver and, when required, autonomously engages the service brake to bring the vehicle to a controlled stop. This proactive action not only averts frequent repairs to rear light clusters, bumpers, and doors but also holds the potential to save lives.

Specifically, this auto braking feature ensures a reliable stoppage, surpassing the limitations of merely applying the park brake, which can adversely impact other vehicle systems, including the gearbox. This proves especially crucial in sectors where drivers contend with multiple responsibilities while reversing or manoeuvring, such as overseeing crew movement or ensuring pedestrian and road user safety.

Moreover, the system's adaptability extends to forward motion, activating below a predetermined and adjustable speed threshold. For instance, in scenarios like road sweeping, where drivers need to monitor the kerb line while being conscious of their surroundings, this feature proves immensely beneficial.

Considering these merits, it is strongly advocated that certain industries, including waste management with bin lorries, road sweeping, road rolling, and tar spraying, make radar auto braking technology a mandatory inclusion in their vehicle fleets. Local authorities are urged to consider and prioritize this advancement for their vehicle fleets, ensuring a safer operational environment for all.
