The in-cab receiver unit provides a visual and/or audible early warning if the vehicle is becoming unstable
The system consists of a sensor on the trailerâ€™s rear axle and a receiver in the cab
Developed by Bertocco Automotive Engineering of Italy and Shell Chemicals Europe, this early warning roll-over has just been awarded top prize in the EuroTra Safety and Innovation Award 2010
It doesn't take much analysis to reach the conclusion that truck rollovers are very dangerous. Studies have shown that over 6 percent of the heavy truck fatalities and incapacitating injuries on U.S roads alone are a result of rollover accidents. Modern trucks fitted with ESP (Electronic Stability Program) have a greater chance of avoiding the problem, but this retrofittable early warning tanker roll-over device developed by Bertocco Automotive Engineering of Italy and Shell Chemicals Europe provides added safety for older vehicles... and it's just been awarded top prize in the EuroTra Safety and Innovation Award 2010.
