Radar-based sensors deployed at the front and rear of their dump trucks. The sensors provide active object detection in vehicle blind spots without costly or time-consuming alterations to existing collision avoidance devices.
The sensors emit fan-shaped beams of high-frequency radio waves. To avoid false alerts, each sensor was configured to create a sensing area corresponding to its blind spot, ignores objects outside the area. An onboard video monitoring system allows the operator to check for any obstructions.
Each sensor is protected by a rugged IP67-rated housing, which ensures reliable operation, even when covered in caked-on mud.
