Backsense® Radar

Backsense® heavy-duty radar sensor systems are designed to detect people and objects in blind spots, significantly reducing accidents. They detect stationary and moving objects, providing the driver with in-cab visual and audible warnings – alerting the operator whose attention cannot be focused on all danger areas. Backsense® obstacle detection sensors work effectively in harsh environments and in poor visibility including darkness, smoke and fog.

Backsense® radar sensors are available in fixed detection range models and fully programmable models allowing bespoke detection areas and the ability to calibrate-out fixed objects or bodywork.

 Benefits

  • Suitable for both on- and off-road applications
  • Frequency modulated continuous wave radar technology
  • Controlled beam pattern to minimise false warnings
  • Excellent close-in detection
  • 5 stage audible and easy-to-read visual display
  • Heavy duty: Designed for severe weather conditions and all terrains
  • Meets Health and Safety requirements
  • Unaffected by moisture, dust, vibration, heat, cold, UV, snow, ice, high wind, water and mud

 

 

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

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.

Benefits 

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