Brigade outlines its Sidescan Predict

Brigade’s Sidescan Predict is the next generation of ultrasonic detection, according to the company.

By analysing speed, direction and acceleration of both the vehicle and detected object and differentiating between static and moving objects, the Sidescan Predict algorithm assesses the risk and calculates the likelihood of an impact.

Designed for rigid vehicles, Sidescan Predict instantly alerts the driver to potential dangers via a multi-stage in-cab visual warning system, according to the urgency of the situation, thus minimising audible alerts and false alarms. The system can be activated all the time when the speed is below 20mph, without causing driver overload and is not dependent on indicator selection for activation. Sidescan Predict sensors ensure full coverage down the nearside of the vehicle with a range of two metres and do not activate in relation to roadside furniture or stationery vehicles.

Brigade’s new side radar detection has been designed to improve safety on both articulated and rigid vehicles. Previously detection systems were fitted to the tractor unit, but the trailer was neglected due to the articulation causing false alerts. Brigade’s new side radar detection can detect whether the vehicle has a trailer. It is predictive and only warns the driver if a collision is likely via a visual display in the cab. Side radar detects the truck turning, so indicator selection is not required to activate the system. It has a quick install time of approximately two hours, meaning less vehicle downtime.
