CM Show 2020: HGV safety - 'No More False Alarms' with Trailer Vision

Trailer Vision is delighted to be taking part in this month’s Commercial Motor Show and is pleased to announce the availability of a brand new, Direct Vision Standard (DVS) compliant, optical detection system, Cycle-Safe™.

Cycle-Safe™ meets the recommended requirements for the DVS HGV Safety Permit, as the system can differentiate between moving objects, such as pedestrians and cyclists, and static objects such as street furniture.

The system uses next-generation optical technology combining detection and vision in a single 'smart camera'.

Intelligent technology provides drivers with audible alerts and visual warnings, either via a monitor and/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’ and ‘Blind Spot Warning'.

Neil Todd, general manager at Trailer Vision, said: “Additionally, it is not inconceivable that the DVS 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.

“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.”

Book your free ticket today for the exciting three-day Commercial Motor Show, taking place online from 29 September to 1 October.
