Trailer Vision are delighted to be taking part in this year’s Commercial Motor Show and are pleased to announce the availability of a brand new, DVS compliant, optical detection system ‘Cycle-Safe™’.
Cycle-Safe™ meets the recommended requirements for an HGV Safety Permit, as the system can differentiate between moving objects, like VRUs, and static objects, like street furniture, unlike ultrasonic sensors, which are really designed for obstacle detection (only).
Cycle-Safe™ utilises next generation optical technology combining detection and vision in a single 'smart camera'. The intelligent system provides drivers with audible alerts and visual warnings, either via a monitor &/or a separate LED/Buzzer. Operators can choose whether the system is always on, or switched off above 20mph. However, it’s recommend that the system is always on, as it's also very useful for 'Lane Change Assist / Blind Spot Warning'. Additionally, it's not inconceivable that the Progressive Safe System review (2024) will call for the use of 'intelligent' side-detection systems like Cycle-Safe™, rather than allowing the use of 'dumb' ultrasonic 'side-scan'/side-detection systems, which are proven to have high false alarm rates. Please visit the Trailer Vision stand to find out more about this exciting and cutting edge product that’s set to improve road safety for all.
