New Car Accident Prevention Technology Approved
by Canadian Military!
Global Accents Ltd. is the Canadian
developer and distributor of SafeREVERSE Sonar, a back up ultrasonic
sensing device that alerts the driver of anything behind
the vehicle when backing up. It is a significant advancement over
the traditional back up systems commonly used on trucks which
merely emit a constant beeping alarm whenever a vehicle is put
in reverse. SafeREVERSE Sonar
has already demonstrated its ability to save lives. It is now
installed on the vehicle of the Minister of National Defence in
Now the Canadian
military has endorsed the effectiveness of this new safety system.
After an extensive study done by the Ministry of National Defence
to investigate the prevention of back up accidents using the SafeREVERSE
Sonar back up sensors, it was shown that a dramatic
decrease was achieved in back up accidents and resulting
Successful trial results were achieved by the Canadian military
after a one year test that compared hundreds of vehicles driven
for millions of kilometers. The report, which has just been released,
concludes that: "The SafeREVERSE
Sonar system has proven highly effective and has
helped reduce backing accidents with CFB Borden significantly.
" In fact, back up accidents were reduced by eighty percent!
The sensors' durability
was also put to the test: "Over the course of the year, the
vehicles were put through all possible elements and conditions
in their normal operations and the sensors performed to all expectations
in preventing backing accidents."
The report recommends increased use of this new technology throughout
the Canadian military: "The system pays for itself in the first
year. It is the recommendation of the Base Transport CFB Borden
that these sensors be installed on the majority of the light commercial
fleet on any base including staff cars, 7/9 passenger vans, panel
vans and pick-ups".
SafeREVERSE Sonar has
also been approved by the Ministry of Correctional Services to
be installed on all new and refurbished vehicles in Ontario. The
system has already been installed on many Wheel-Trans vehicles.
With the increasing
popularity of large SUVs and vans, rear visibility is frequently
a major problem for drivers and back up accidents pose a substantial
danger. SafeREVERSE Sonar
can be easily installed on cars, light trucks, vans, motor homes
and even large tractor/trailers. It is now available to vehicle
owners across Canada to significantly reduce the risk of accidents
and serious injuries.
