VisionStat Plus Integrated Obstacle Detection Sensor & Video System

Mobile Awareness, LLC, a provider of leading-edge transportation safety products, today announced VisionStat™ Plus, an extremely affordable and complete commercial-grade system to prevent backing accidents. VisionStat Plus offers an integrated version of their SenseStat™ Obstacle Detection Sensor System that connects directly with their wired VisionStat Camera System with no additional cabling required.

VisionStat Plus is an advanced safety solution which combines two technologies to aid in the prevention of costly backing accidents. Utilizing a leading-edge obstacle detection sensor system (SenseStat), which is displayed on a backing camera video monitor (VisionStat), the driver is provided both audible and visual information when an obstacle is detected in the rear of the vehicle. The combined features allow for visual confirmation via a CCD camera along with the distance and proximity from any of four (4) sensor zones – the driver sees the exact distance (accurate to 1-inch), to the closest object on the monitor.

SenseStat is the leading-edge obstacle detection system that monitors four 4 zones simultaneously indicating the area closest to an object or person. VisionStat is a rugged easily installable video system available with either a 5.6” or the 7” Color LCD Monitor which is configurable with up to four (4) infrared night vision CCD cameras. VisionStat Plus is the extremely cost-effective result of integrating the SenseStat™ Obstacle Detection Sensor System directly into the VisionStat Camera System with no additional wiring required.

“Mobile Awareness continues to see an increasing demand among fleets for more flexible, effective and affordable safety systems” says Brandon Stotsenburg, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Mobile Awareness. “By developing VisionStat Plus we continue our commitment to provide easy-to-install, cost-effective and technically advanced solutions for enhanced vehicle safety.”

In the past, customers would choose between two of the most common blind spot monitoring methods, a backing camera or an obstacle detection system. While each has important advantages, the cost of purchasing and installing two different systems was often prohibitive. By offering an integrated version, the combined safety effects of a VisionStat camera (visual) “Plus” the object detection of a SenseStat sensor (audible alarm) are realized at cost (starting at $675.00) often below other rugged camera systems alone. VisionStat Plus is ideal for all types of single unit vehicle fleets in urban areas where backing safety is often stressed.

Stotsenburg concludes, “There are many advantages to utilizing active backing sensor technology with a reversing camera system. One of the most critical being when the driver is not viewing the video monitor, the audio from the sensor system can bring attention to an unforeseen object or individual behind their vehicle. Ultimately, this added driver awareness will reduce costs and backing accidents.”

Mobile Awareness, LLC Announced The SE (Sensor Enhancement) Version Of Their SenseStat™ Obstacle Detection Sensor System Family

Mobile Awareness, LLC, a provider of leading-edge transportation safety products today announced the SE (Sensor Enhancement) version of their SenseStat™ Obstacle Detection Sensor System family – the pioneering brand for preventing backing accidents on commercial vehicles.

SenseStat is an innovative Obstacle Detection Sensor System that simultaneously monitors 4-zones at the rear of a vehicle indicating the area closest to an object. It is extremely accurate (within one inch), highly affordable and intended for use on Commercial, Off-Road, Lift Truck and Construction Vehicles. The SenseStat SE version is a new design improvement which maximizes protection of the sensors, while providing greater mounting flexibility and reliability. These features found on the SE version are further enhanced by a full 3 year limited warranty.

Installation of SenseStat SE is easy and adaptable to most vehicle configurations, helping to assure the highest performance in rear blind spot detection. The ruggedized mount maximizes performance in harsh environments enhancing both durability and sensor protection. The SenseStat SE can be mounted directly to the vehicle vertically or horizontally, providing a level plane for optimum sensor positioning.

“Mobile Awareness continues to see an increasing demand among commercial fleets for more cost effective and easily installed safety systems” says Brandon Stotsenburg, Director of Sales & Marketing at Mobile Awareness. “To that end, we continue to focus on new product development that offers a lower total cost of ownership such as the SenseStat SE.”

The current models available in the SE version are the Wireless (MA-ODSS-4M17W-SE), Wired Truck & Trailer (MA-ODSS-4M17TT-SE) and the Wired Box Truck (MA-ODSS–4M17BT-SE). Common among them are the ability to simultaneously monitors four (4) zones in real-time, an LED display which indicates the direction or location of an obstacle or person, display blanking until reverse gear is engaged and a unique stop-line adjustment feature. All systems are easily installed in less than 1-hour on most vehicles and include a laminated User Guide (safety instruction card) for easy driver education & reference.

Stotsenburg concludes, “With an estimated installed cost of less than $500 on most vehicles, SenseStat SE provides an impressive ROI for organizations who wish to significantly reduce costs and enhance safety in backing environments.”

Integrity Group US Names Distributor for 3 Commercial Vehicle Safety Products

Integrity Group US has been named by Mobile Awareness, LLC™ as a national distributor for three safety products aimed at commercial vehicle fleet operators at airports, the parking industry, health care facilities, hotels/resorts, car rental agencies and universities.

The three products — TireStat™ TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system), VisionStat™ Camera Systems, and SenseStat™ Obstacle Detection Sensor System, – are designed to improve overall driving safety, while reducing costs.

“The tire monitoring product gives critical data concerning the vehicle’s tire pressure and temperature,” said Jim Newell, Director of Product Sales for Integrity Group US,” while the other two high-tech products make it easier for drivers to monitor through cameras or sensors the areas beside and behind the truck, van or bus as it backs up.”

TireStat TPMS The TireStat TPMS detects overheated, under-inflated, over-inflated and rapid leaking tires before a tire incident occurs. The TireStat sensors install directly on the tire valve stems and transmit the actual tire pressure and temperature to the display wirelessly. Alert levels are easy to set for both pressure and temperature for each tire. The sensors have an anti-theft feature and air can be added without removing the sensors.

“Properly inflated tires increase overall fuel economy, as well as enhance fleet safety,” Newell stated. He explained that a 20 percent under-inflated tire reduces tire life by approximately 25 percent. “This costs money,” he said, “but more importantly, it could lead to possible tire failure and a serious accident.” “The return on investment for adding TireStat TPMS to fleet vehicles could be as quick as 10 months, when you consider the fuel cost savings, tire maintenance/wear costs, reduced downtime, reduced liability/accidents and reduced vehicle wear,” Newell said.

VisionStat Camera Systems The VisionStat Camera Systems can help limit financial loss and legal liability by monitoring and recording events in and around a vehicle and eliminating blind spots to help prevent costly backup accidents.

The color camera system can be configured with up to four infrared night vision CCD cameras for front, side and rear mounting, available in wired or wireless setups. The quality cameras are easy to install, waterproof, rugged in construction and cost effective.

The 5.6” or 7.0” monitor includes built-in controls, automatic turn-signal or reverse views, switching with the direction (“backward,” “left,” or “right”) displayed on the monitor. The cameras are audio enabled so the driver can hear around as well as see around blind spot areas.

SenseStat Obstacle Detection Sensor System The SenseStat Obstacle Detection Sensor System is designed for commercial trucks with trailers, utility vehicles, and buses. The wired or wireless system is activated automatically when reverse gear is engaged. Drivers are alerted to objects behind their vehicles with both an audible and visual indicator (LED display) on the dash-mounted Warning Display Unit.

The four waterproof sensors are easily mounted on the rear of the truck or trailer. All zones are simultaneously displayed in real time, indicating the area closest to an object within one inch.
