Based on Sentinel’s patented Auto-braking Reversing System, the new generation of radars improve performance whilst continuing to offer an accurate and reliable auto-braking device, which is particularly beneficial to refuse collection vehicles as it protects personnel working outside the vehicle.

This year Sentinel has worked with Midlothian Council to provide 4-camera systems to new food waste collection vehicles to assist in the efficient day-to-day operation of the new service.
