Detect obstacles and solid objects using radar and trigger a visible and audible warning to the operator, to improve safety in your machinery operation.

Radar is one of many detection systems we can advise on here at Shockwatch NZ.  It will detect all objects – solid inanimate items such as pallets and walls, as well as human forms, so there are pros and cons compared with our other pedestrian detection systems

Talk to us and we can help you evaluate the options and select the best solution to suit your machinery, freight or materials handling operation.

VTODSL – 4m Radar Obstacle Detection System

4m range, 3 stage notification

Radar detector shown at two different angles

Detect objects behind moving machines and vehicles using radar obstacle detection.  This unit has a 4 m range and is able to precisely calculate the distance and direction of obstacles.  As distances to the object are reduced an alarm will sound, depending if the system is armed or not (i.e. in reverse gear).  As distance increases the alarm will stop (reducing false alarm triggers).

VTODSM – 8m Radar Obstacle Detection System

8m range, 3 stage notification, with alarm output and programmable detection zones

As with the VTODSL, this device detects objects behind moving machines, with an increased 8m range and is able to precisely calculate the distance and direction of obstacles.  As distances to the object are reduced an alarm will sound, and as distance increases the alarm will stop (reducing false alarm triggers).

Detection Zones

Detects objects up to 8m away with three different programmable detection zones.  Radar will accurately calculate the distance and trigger the corresponding alarm.

Selectable Detection Modes

3m x 5m

4m x 6m

4m radar range for obstacle detection behind moving vehicles.

Includes HD Video with Overlay

Featured in this kit is a high quality HD camera with built in infrared technology for night vision.  The radar data is overlayed onto the video to warn operators of nearby obstacles.

Radar Detection Applications for the Home RV or Larger Vehicle Owner

Radar detectors and cameras are ideally suited to improving safety while driving your RV, motorhome, caravan, minibus, horsefloat or SUV.  There are many combinations of this equipment that can make you a safer driver, removing blindspots, alerting you to obstacles and recording activity for security and accountability reasons. 

Don’t assume that this equipment is out of your budget – it is a viable option for the recreational vehicle owner, making your life easier and safer and your RV experience all the more enjoyable.
