Emergency Braking In HGVs Approaching

From November 1 this year, EU legislation will mandate the fitment of Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) systems on most newly registered Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) over 7.5 tonnes.

Standard-fit AEB systems are currently available on nearly 11 per cent of new cars, and offered as an option on a further 18.5 per cent. According to Euro NCAP and ANCAP, the independent safety bodies for Europe and Australasia, AEB is already leading to a 38 per cent reduction in real-world rear-end crashes and proving to be the key to gaining the coveted NCAP 5 star safety rating.

Current AEB technology on some commercial vehicles exceeds the vehicle to vehicle avoidance performance of even the most advanced car systems, although cars are still capable of a much broader spectrum of avoidance scenarios including collisions with pedestrians and other vulnerable road users.

Expert Says All Commercial Vehicles Should Be Equipped with Reversing Protection

Christopher Hanson-Abbot, recently awarded an OBE for his services for vehicle road safety, believes the mandatory fitment of reverse warning systems will reduce fatalities.

Nearly a quarter of all work vehicle-related deaths occur during reversing according to current statistics, and although a large majority of vehicles are fitted with reverse warning equipment, regulations still do not make this mandatory.

Reversing is often the cause of vehicle damage or human injury. Fines have been issued to transport operators for employee injury and high costs in repairs for simple low speed reversing incidents.

Tip Trailer Services have been fined £500,000 plus £56,938 costs after an employee suffered horrific injuries when she was crushed between a trailer and a truck, although a reversing system would have not prevented this incident, the resulting fine shows what reversing incidents could cost a company.

aide automotives Back-Stop commercial vehicle reversing systems key features are that it alerts the driver when a person or object is detected within its 3M range and then the reversing system makes a controlled brake application relative to vehicle speed. This prevents aggressive braking when only moving at low speeds but still arrests the vehicle within 0.4 of a second.

Truck & Trailer Auto Reverse & Braking System Prevents Crash Damage.

A lorry driver making deliveries to Marks & Spencer was left red-faced after tearing down part of a wall.

He became stuck reversing into the back of the Brighton store yesterday morning and struck the wall. When he moved forward again, it collapsed.

Bob Higham, who lives in Regent Hill, where the accident happened, claimed lorries caused numerous accidents in the area’s narrow streets and called for them to be banned from the city centre.

He said: “They don’t always knock walls down but there’s scrapes.

“I think big lorries like this should be banned. They should only allow smaller, fixed wheelbase vehicles in.”

Trailer Reversing System “BackStop” automatically applies the brakes when an object such as a concrete pillar or a person becomes an obstruction, or is in close proximity to the rear of the vehicle.

Trailer Reversing System “BackStop” activates when the vehicle is in reverse. Continuously monitoring at a distance up to 3m behind the vehicle, BackStop will automatically apply the brakes if any of the sensors detect an obstacle, leaving sufficient time for a person to move or the vehicle realigned.

Truck & Trailer BackStop can be retro fitted to any rigid truck or trailer by our onsite service engineers.

Automatic Truck & Trailer Braking System

Recently Glasgow City Council were fined £20,000 following the death of a pensioner after he was struck by a reversing refuse vehicle in the city centre.

Malcolm McCulloch, 71, a retired dock worker from Glasgow, was walking across Holm Street, Glasgow, when he was struck by the reversing lorry on 10 August 2012. He suffered severe chest and pelvic injuries and later died in hospital.

The incident was investigated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and a prosecution brought against the council for serious safety failings.

An inspection of the vehicle by HSE mechanical specialists found no defects, and its warning beacon and siren were working correctly. However, there was a blind spot, around 2.2 metres wide, that was not covered by the CCTV camera or wing mirrors. Accordingly neither the driver nor the labourer would have seen Mr McCulloch stepping into the path of the reversing lorry. A reversing assistant should have been used to guide the driver while reversing and to prevent pedestrians such as Mr McCulloch from being able to cross the road as the lorry reversed.

BackStop Trailer & Truck Reversing System is a modern hi tech reversing aide for commercial rigid trucks and trailers.

 

The BackStop system is an attractive product for transport managers to improve health & safety standards.

 

Reversing is often the cause of vehicle damage or human injury. Fines have been issued to transport operators for employee injury and high costs in repairs for simple low speed reversing incidents. One incident in 2011 when an employee received crush injuries cost the UK transport operator a total of £15,000 in fines and costs.

 

For RCV’s aide automotive offer a Radar Sensor system. BackStop The Refuse Vehicle Reversing System automatically applies the brakes when an object such as a person or obstacle is in close proximity to the rear of the vehicle. This is achieved by measuring the phase shift, BackStop Radar can accurately map and detect people or objects behind the vehicle.

 

The RCV Reversing system only detects a target which is moving towards the sensor, so static parts of the vehicle like bin lifts or parts of bodywork are ignored, even though they may be in front of the sensor. This makes it ideal for Refuse Collection Vehicles or heavy plant with just a single sensor mounted centrally.
