RadarEye Gives Drivers
an Active Warning
RadarEye is an active detection system that is suitable for use in earthmoving machines, heavy equipment, commercial vehicles and industrial trucks, among other applications. Short-Range Detection (SRD) sensors detect objects and people in the immediate vicinity of the vehicle, actively alerting drivers via both visual and acoustic signals. The alarm tone frequency and the visual indicators tell drivers how close the object is to the vehicle. Used in conjunction with a camera system, RadarEye allows drivers to assess the situation at a glance using the monitor.
Extend Existing Camera Systems
Most operational earthmoving machines are already equipped with analog reversing cameras and monitor. These systems are suitable for extension with RadarEye. The SRD interface box integrates radar alerts directly into the image on the existing monitor via visual overlays and acoustic signals. This process can be carried out using either an existing Stoneridge-Orlaco camera system or a third-party monitor. Adding detection overlays to the video images makes it possible for drivers to work more safely, reliably and efficiently.
Customer Story: Cameras and Radar are Worth Their Weight in Gold in Russian Mega-Mine
Gold mines are among the most challenging working environments in the world. They are places where huge mining vehicles brave harsh conditions every day. This is why PJSC Polyus equips all of its vehicles in the vast Russian Olimpiada mine with cameras, radar and monitors.
"We tried just about everything to resolve the problems with getting a good enough view, but nothing worked — until we tried a pilot with RadarEye. The drivers then insisted on having all their vehicles equipped with cameras and radars."
