The Auto-Banksman is an adaption of our VMS system specifically designed to suit the majority of on highway vehicles. The system incorporates an in-cab display module which alerts the driver audibly and visually to approaching hazards. Whereas VMS has been developed for off highway machines with brakes operated by stored hydraulic energy and manual selection of the detection pattern, Auto Banksman has been developed to apply the emergency brake.

The Auto Banksman’s detection area is split into 3 zones, inner, intermediate and outer, all of which are highly customisable. When the audible alarm of the two most outer ranges are ignored a third inner detection zone will automatically apply the machines brakes’.

When considering an auto braking system of this kind the biggest concern is always false alarms frustrating the operator and affecting efficiency. Ogden Safety Systems is the pioneer in this technology with 40 years of experience and an installed base that has accumulated over 10 million machine hours. Ogden Safety Systems has developed a unique safety system that can be seamlessly integrated into almost any working environment.

An early adopter of the Auto Banksman has been the refuse industry. With the help of our UK distributor, Vision Techniques, the system has quickly become a must have safety requirement for Councils throughout the UK.

Vision Techniques have carried out several case studies and found the Auto Banksman to have a 100% collision avoidance record to date, helping drivers make difficult reversing manoeuvres, putting an end to accidents and injuries and preventing costly compensation claims.
