Easy-Swap Obstacle Detection Sensor System for Tractor-Trailers Now Available
CLEVELAND, OH — Mobile Awareness, LLC, a provider of leading-edge transportation safety products today announced their enhanced version of SenseStat Wireless® Obstacle Detection Sensor System.
Mobile Awareness has made it easy for fleet managers to help eliminate vehicle backing accidents on trailers that are frequently pulled by different tractors. Made for “drop and hook” situations, this wireless obstacle detection sensor system automatically pairs the switched trailer to the monitor in the tractor. Any weather, any time, drivers will have important backing safety information available via both an audible alarm and an intuitive visual display. The result for fleets is an improved backing safety record regardless of which truck and trailer is paired.
One SenseStat customer has the wireless system deployed on its entire fleet of 800 tractors and 1,400 trailers. They quickly realized how SenseStat can complement their safety programs, while ensuring that last-minute obstacles and inattentive spotters can remain safe. When outfitted with SenseStat Wireless, every vehicle becomes capable of providing the driver accurate distance measurements (to within an inch or millimeter) of the closest object to the trailer’s bumper.
“It’s a win-win for drivers and fleet managers,” said Nico Cottone, vice president of business development for Mobile Awareness. “Drivers are more efficient when backing up and fleet managers are saving money in fewer repair bills.”
SenseStat Wireless, with push-button sync, retails for less than $400 and installs in about an hour, which makes it an affordable and implementable safety solution, especially when considering the staggering cost of backing accidents. The SenseStat system can also be used on the top corners of trailers, providing a warning of overhangs, overpasses and tree limbs.
