Auto Braking Radar System

VMS Vision

Auto Braking Radar System

The ultimate in reversing radar system technology

Combining the benefits of the sensor vision system with the added benefit of automatically applying the vehicle’s brakes whenever the audible warning has been ignored.

This highly intelligent system incorporates an in-cab control module which allows the operator to select one of three customisable groups of detection ranges.

In the event that the machine operator, who is now aware of any hazards and has driven through the two audible warning ranges and then into the braking range, still needs to reverse slightly, a manual over-ride button can be used. This button will activate the over-ride mode, disabling the braking portion of the VMS system for that period of reverse. The unit will still give an audible warning.

Key Features:

  • The safest reversing radar system available today.
  • Tried, tested and highly admired by vehicle operators all over the world.
  • Can be manually over-ridden once the operator is aware of hazards in the area.
  • Stores a log of events which can be retrieved in the unlikely event of an accident.
  • Dramatically reduces the risk of accidents.

Liebherr have used VMS Safety Systems for many years due to the quality of the product and the efficiency of the service. As a leading manufacturer in the earthmoving industry we would only be associated with the best in the business. I have personally used the service on many occasions, it’s always fast, friendly and efficient with very little if any assistance on our part

Machine Interface

VMS Vision Machine InterfaceThe VMS system uses the Brake Logic Box (BLB) to interface to the machine and this is programmable to suit each type of machine.

Gear signals are taken from gear selector signals and/or solenoid signals or from the CANBUS where available.

Brake Application

The brakes are applied by putting a shuttle valve into the service brakes system or systems.

A special valve block has been developed by UK installation specialists Towny Branford to combine the solenoid valve, the shuttle valve and fittings for pressure switches which monitor the driver’s brake application and the VMS brake application.

Driver Interface

VMS Vision Machine InterfaceVMS systems offer the facility for the driver to select the detection zone from three pre-programmed patterns stored in the radar. When working in a very tight area he may need a smaller pattern which would be unsuitable when reversing more quickly in an open area.

On some machines it is possible to measure the vehicle speed and auto change the detection zone to suit the speed. Some customers have requested a light bar on top of the cab to indicate which detection zone is selected. Most installations have an indicator light at the rear which flashes if the auto braking is being overridden or if the system has detected a fault.

Event Logger

VMS Vision Machine InterfaceThe BLB software contains a logging function which records the time and date of system events and operations.

The cab unit contains a menu function which allows the log to be interrogated. However the log records all signals and events and we provide PC based software to download and view data filtered by event or by time and date range.
