Cemex trials new road safety sensors

Published by
World Cement,


Cemex UK is working with Exeros to trial new ultra-sonic and heat sensors that could be the next generation of road safety sensors on company trucks.

At present, most sensors fitted to HGV trucks are redeveloped surfacing sensors using a coned sonar beam. The problem is that they detect any object within range, including lamp posts and fencing, as well as vulnerable road users, such as cyclists.

The new system will detect the vulnerable road users and ignore the rest using heat detection and targeting system, with a Skeye view (360°) of the vehicle. The new system is currently being fitted to one of the Cemex’s London readymix trucks, to evaluate its efficiency.
