Fleetclear launches latest upgrade of Anti-Roll and Driver ID solution

Fleet technology and software solutions company Fleetclear has launched the latest version of its anti-roll away and driver ID solution for commercial vehicles.

The company designed the technology to safeguard assets with authorised vehicle operation and protection from roll-aways. The Fleetclear system features a robust CANBUS safety control unit, which automatically locks the parking brake as the driver exits the cab. The vehicle remains immobilised until an authorised driver has been identified using either RFID or a covert actuator.

Chris Waller, Technical Director, Fleetclear, commented: ‘Our comprehensive solution requires minimal maintenance and prevents post-installation tampering.’ 

The safety unit incorporates fail-safe and internal monitoring systems to protect against component failure, sabotage, and other external influences. Fault conditions and disconnected components are immediately reported to the driver via an audible warning message. The system includes a daily test mode, so the driver can quickly test each major part before starting a journey. 

 Chris added: ‘We provide these pro-active monitoring features to assure fleet managers that the system will leave the depot in full working condition each day.’

The Fleetclear system includes customisable audible warning messages for the driver and a secondary external speaker alert for vehicle operators and the public. The onboard data recorder logs over 50 different event types, including critical CANBUS data from the vehicle for up to three years.

The company runs its own training academy and recently sent a team of engineers to undertake a specialist brake training course at WABCO.

Chris explained: ‘Our system is integrating with vehicle braking systems, and it’s crucial that our engineers fully understand how the two systems interact. Ongoing development and training of our team is part and parcel of our culture to ensure that our engineers are prepared and up to speed with the latest technological developments.’
