The blind spot of a refuse collection vehicle requires a special system in order not to increase the demands on the driver, but to relieve the driver. TruckWarn's ASF blind spot system meets exactly these requirements. Our side scan system works actively and warns the rider actively against cyclists or people in the blind spot, without additional monitor or LCD display which must be additionally monitored by the rider. Depending on the danger zone, TruckWarn warns of possible dangers by means of an alarm flashing light or, in the event of increased danger, additionally by means of an alarm tone. The demands on the driver of a refuse collection vehicle are already quite high, so that a further system must not make any further demands, but must actively support and even relieve the driver in dangerous situations.
How does the blind spot assistant work?
4 special XXL sensors monitor the area directly next to the garbage truck and detect cyclists, people or vehicles in the blind spot, which is difficult or even impossible for the driver to see through the side mirror. If someone is in the danger zone next to the truck when turning or changing lanes, the system first warns the driver with a flashing LED or, if there is an increased danger, with an alarm signal. Even if the driver of the garbage truck is distracted, the system actively warns as soon as, for example, a cyclist is next to the garbage truck.

Our blind spot assistant can prevent accidents with cyclists and pedestrians and thus save lives. Dangerous situations can be considerably defused and especially the danger of overlooking a cyclist in the blind spot when turning can be considerably reduced.
