Radar-Stop has completed over a year of trials and has now been specified as original equipment for Serco refuse collection vehicles. This follows rigorous testing in all conditions and the system has been tailored to exactly match Serco's high standards in safety for its workforce. One of Radar-Stops key features was that it alerted the driver when a person or object was detected within its 3M range and then went on to make a controlled brake application relative to vehicle speed. This prevents aggressive braking when only moving at low speeds but still arrests the vehicle within 0.4 of a second.
