The MAX-SAFE Side Watch solution can be installed to new fleet builds or retrofitted to a wide range of vehicles: including, but not limited to, garbage trucks; prime-movers; people-carriers; buses; and heavy machinery. It is mounted to the side mirror, and adjusted as necessary.
HOW THE MAX-SAFE SIDE WATCH SOLUTION WORKS
The MAX-SAFE Side Watch solution uses state-of-the-art radar technology to assist Right Hand Side drivers in left-hand turning manoeuvres. The radar utilises a special in-built VRU algorithm which can detect moving objects, and extends the driver’s field of view by up to 4m to the left, and 14m to the rear, of the vehicle.
When the system detects a person, cyclist or object within the Danger Zone, the driver is warned via both audible and visual alerts to take appropriate action.
When coupled with the MAX-SAFE Audible Warning™ system, the solution can also warn the vulnerable road users (pedestrians or cyclists) of the potential danger. This is achieved by broadcasting a pre-recorded announcement via a loudspeaker installed on the outside of the vehicle.
