Hazardous Goods Transportation: Preventing to Protect.
We would like to present in this article our rollover detection system for trucks transporting hazardous materials. Developed several years ago, this product has already proven its effectiveness, successfully installed by several of our clients and tested on numerous occasions.
This ingenious system is not just an innovative idea but a tangible reality that has demonstrated its efficiency in real-life situations. Thanks to it, our clients have enhanced the safety of their transportation and contributed to the protection of surrounding communities. 🚛💡
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The system consists of an ATEX-compliant loudspeaker and a high-tech beacon that analyzes the driver’s behavior and the impacts suffered by the vehicle. As soon as a rollover is detected, the system sends an instant alert to the vehicle management center. Simultaneously, a warning message is broadcast via the loudspeaker to inform the surrounding populations of the accident and encourage them to stay at a distance. 📢✅
📈 WHY IS IT NECESSARY?
The need to enhance the safety of transporting hazardous materials is more evident than ever. Accidents involving these trucks can have devastating consequences. To illustrate the urgency of the situation, we will share a press review after this article highlighting the risks and consequences associated with accidents of this type. These events demonstrate the crucial importance of equipping ourselves with advanced technologies to ensure the safety of all. 📰🌐
🤝 ONE STEP CLOSER TO COLLECTIVE SAFETY.
By investing in this system, we contribute not only to protecting our roads, drivers, and products but also to ensuring the safety of the communities along our roads. Together, let’s make road safety a priority and work to prevent accidents before they occur.
