How Sentinel’s Tipper Radar Auto Braking Reversing Aids Will Help You 

Every fleet operator worries about the risk of injury to personnel or members of the public when their truck is on the streets or making deliveries.  Reversing manoeuvres can’t be avoided, increasing the risk of accidents. 

 

Sentinel’s patented Safetystop tipper auto-braking and Alerter reversing aids save the risk of damage to expensive vehicles and loading bays.  Much more importantly, they protect personnel and members of the public from injury and death. Used as an aid to responsible driving, Sentinel’s solutions save lives.

 

How Does Sentinel’s Safetystop Auto-Brake Radar Reversing System Work? 

  • Ultrasonic or radar sensors are fitted to the rear of the tipper.
  • When reversing, the sensors identify the distance to a potential hazard and apply the vehicle’s brakes automatically if the hazard is too close.
  • An additional warning buzzer and light system in the cab also alerts the driver to the hazard.
  • This system has been designed not to restrict the truck’s normal operational activity.

 

How Does Sentinel’s Alerter Reversing System Work? 

  • Ultrasonic or radar sensors are fitted to the rear of the tipper.
  • When reversing the sensors identify the distance to a potential hazard and warn the driver if the truck is getting too close to the hazard. When specifying the system customers are able to choose which warning method they would prefer: 

 

Inside Cab Warning:

A buzzer and light system fitted inside the cab warns the driver of the hazard.

 

Outside Cab Warning:

An LED traffic light system is fitted on the vehicle’s body. This provides the driver with a visual display of how far the truck is away from the hazard. The LED traffic lights system also incorporates night time dimming.

 

An additional audible warning of an obstruction is provided by a loud sounder  (103db) that is mounted on the bulk head. The sounder is switched automatically to night- silent operation when side lights are on.

 

If the obstacle moves away from the truck and is no longer a danger, the system resets itself.

 

This system has been designed not to restrict the truck’s normal operational activity.
