Road Worker Safety

Being a road worker is one of the most dangerous occupations in the UK. In addition, millions in revenue are lost every year from damage to equipment or disruption to work, both as a result of vehicle incursions.

Navtech Radar's ClearWay solution detects vehicle incursions within 10 seconds, and activates audible and visual alarms, both from a central alarm point and at an individual worker level. This provides workers with sufficient time to vacate the site, and for operators to assign emergency intervention.

How Does it Work?

ClearWay is a rules-based system, which allows it to generate alarms based on certain activity. In the case of vehicle incursions, ClearWay's high-resolution sensors can detect vehicles intentionally or accidentally entering a prohibited road work zone. The system will do this within 10 seconds of an incursion, providing advance warning to both operators and workers.
