Sidesafe, cyclist & pedestrian detection system
Prices exclude VAT
Many accidents occur when a vehicle is turning left and a cyclist, pedestrian or object on the nearside cannot be seen. Incidents like these can be avoided by utilising the SideSafe® system. SideSafe® warns the driver with a red, amber or green proximity alert from any area of the vehicle you choose. A simple “vehicle turning left” audio warning might not give a cyclist or pedestrian enough time to get out of the way. An audio and visual warning to the driver, who can respond accordingly, is much more effective. The SideSafe® System has four ultrasonic sensors mounted on the nearside of the vehicle and a warning system inside the cab. When the vehicle slows to any designated speed, the system automatically activates and will safeguard that area. If a pedestrian, cyclist or object is detected, the traffic light LED display warns the driver visibly. As the distance drops to less than 400mm, an audio alert will also warn the driver.
Cyclist & pedestrian detection system.
SideSafe alerts the vehicle driver to the presence of people and obstacles along the nearside of the vehicle. SideSafe couples 4 ultrasonic sensors with a traffic light indicator mounted in the vehicle cab which indicates distance between the vehicle and the person or obstacle. At the set critical distance, an audible alarm will also be triggered.

To give best coverage to detect pedestrians and cyclists, the forward sensor is mounted into the nearside wheel arch section at a height no closer than 450mm from the ground. The forward centre sensor to be mounted on the nearside forward corner of the body. The rear sensor to be mounted above or just in front of the rear wheels and the forward rear sensor to be mounted between the rear and forward sensors.
How it works:
The SideSafe Pedestrian / Cyclist Detection system is a modern detection system using ultrasonic technology specifically designed for commercial vans, HGV’s and lorries. When the vehicle slows to around 10 Mph, and the left indicator is turned on, the system will flash the internal display to show turn “On”, then just monitors that area until a cyclist or object is detected or until the vehicle’s speed increases over 10 Mph or the indicator is turned off.
The system consists of 4 Ultrasonic sensor eyes (all 4 to be mounted on the nearside of the vehicle from the nearside bumper / step and wheel arch), a display with internal piezo tone buzzer (to be mounted on the A-Pillar, at side mirror height, facing towards the driver’s position), a Control Module (to be mounted behind the dash) and an optional Voice Warning Speaker Siren under the cab.
All detection zones are approximate due to the shape of the object, installation position of the sensors and reflected signal may mislead the detecting sensor. In order to get a more accurate detection value, please try to test varied objects in different angles when installing.
