ISS to launch Reaclear at RWM

Published:  26 July, 2016

Vehicle safety technology company Innovative Safety Systems Ltd (ISS) is launching a new addition to its Clear family of products at this year’s RWM show.

Reaclear is a revolutionary device designed to eliminate accidents caused during reversing manoeuvres. It is aimed at the waste management sector and works by ensuring that every reverse manoeuvre is authorised before it occurs.

The reversing assistant carries a hand-held device, which also acts as a two-way radio, and once it is safe to manoeuvre he/she presses the transmit button. This lets the driver know that it is safe to reverse. If the vehicle is reversed without first receiving a signal, an alarm sounds in the cab and LED warning lights start flashing.

The in-built two-way communication system allows, for the first time ever, time-critical information to be passed between the reversing assistant and the driver.

ISS director Gavin Thoday said: ‘Like all of our designs, the brief for Reaclear was created by our customers. They understand the challenges more than anyone. So we set out to ensure that reverse assistants undertake their role every time the vehicle reverses, and to minimise or eliminate the dangers surrounding RCV’s reversing. And after a comprehensive research and development process we came up with Reaclear.

‘Reaclear won’t replace reverse camera systems and single driver operators will still have the requirement for reverse radar equipment. These are still important items of safety equipment. However, cameras are passive and prone to human error. Reaclear is different because it is active and requires two pairs of eyes to be focused on the danger area before a reverse manoeuvre can be carried out.’

ISS will be at RWM 2016 in Hall 5, Stand Y111.
