Brigade’s Backsense® radar sensor systems are designed to detect people and objects in harsh conditions. They detect both stationary and moving objects, providing the driver with an in-cab audible and visual warning.
Industries such as mining, quarrying, agriculture, construction and waste all use huge machines and plant equipment, which by their very nature pose a danger if they are not managed safely.
Blind spots tend to be much larger on these applications and include the rear, nearside and also the front, especially with elevated driver positions. Terrains are harsher, vehicles are exposed to the elements more aggressively whilst thick dust and night time conditions all decrease visibility further.
The ISO 5006 standard for earthmoving equipment addresses the problem of blind spots around a vehicle and states that the operator must be able to “see around the machine to enable proper, effective and safe operation.”
Camera monitor systems provide this to some extent, but in difficult environmental conditions a range of complementary devices are vital to give visual and audible operator warnings. Backsense® works effectively in harsh environments and in poor visibility including darkness, smoke and fog.
