Over 35 years ago Global Sensor Systems Inc. began with the development of our infra-red sensor system, WITH AUTOMATIC BRAKING, TO PREVENT BACKING ACCIDENTS.

It is important to know the DIFFERENCE between PASSIVE systems, (i.e. cameras, radar ultra-sonic etc.), and GLOBAL'S TRULY ACTIVE SYSTEM WITH AUTOMATIC BRAKING.

Global's Infra-Red technology is what we call active modulated and it doesn't matter if the object is hot or cold, moving or stationary. The sensors are automatically energized, by the reverse relay, when the vehicle is placed in reverse and a green light will illuminate on the control box indicating the system is working. The coverage area is full width of the vehicle and 6' out behind the rear of the vehicle.

In the event "ANYTHING" enters that protected area when the vehicle is in reverse, the sensors will detect the object and apply the brakes automatically, including those times when the driver is distracted and may not respond to a passive system warning.

If the driver needs to back closer than 6' to an object, the driver may, when satisfied it is safe to do so, touch the brake override switch on the control box and continue backing. When the automatic braking has been overridden a red light will illuminate on the control box indicating the automatic braking has been overridden and the sonalert, in the control box, will sound an intermittent audible warning. In the event something enters the protected area when the automatic braking has been overridden, the sonalert audible warning will change from an intermittent to a solid audible warning, and a yellow light will illuminate on the control box. Even when the automatic braking has been overridden, lights and a sonalert will indicate what is happening at the rear of the vehicle. The driver can touch the "ON" switch, on the control box, to re-activate the automatic braking or the next time the vehicle is placed in reverse, the automatic braking feature will be automatically reset.

Recently one of the largest solid waste companies, in North America, completed a R.O.I. (return on investment), for our Global Sensor System, with automatic braking, over a 2 year period and proved Global provides an excellent R.O.I.
