Published Sunday 13 Mar, 2022 by Peter Woodford

As recently reported in the HVIA News Article, the new Vehicle Standard Australian Design Rule 97/00 mandates Advanced Emergency Braking (AEB) for Omnibuses and Medium and Heavy Goods Vehicles) is to be fitted to:

  • Buses for new models from 1st November 2023.
  • All new Buses from 1st November 2024.
  • All new Heavy Goods vehicles over 3.5 tonnes GVM from 1st February 2025.

LSM Technologies Vehicle Safety Team is once again answering the call with its Australian designed, developed LSM Sentinel® (pat. pend) VSS, a world's first Vehicle Safety System and its integrated mitigation control - LSM RadarSense® "Smart" Radar Sensor(s) Proximity Detection and AEB (Automatic Emergency Braking) mitigation technology.

ADR 97/00-  Advanced Emergency Braking (AEB) systems detect likely forward collisions, provide the driver with a warning and, if the driver does not respond, apply the brakes automatically.

Assistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister Kevin Hogan said, "mandating both technologies (ADR97/00 & ADR 3507) will help save lives and prevent injuries on the nation’s roads.“Mandating this technology for heavy vehicles is expected to save around 100 lives and avoid over 2,300 serious injuries over 40 years,”

HVIA Chief Executive Todd Hacking said, "The legislation package is a major milestone.The incorporation of advanced safety features into new heavy vehicles is irrefutably one of the most effective proactive strategies for improving road safety,”

LSM Sentinel® and LSM RadarSense® integrate to our FSM®   Fleet Safety & Tracking Manager remote Telematics / Web Based System for alerting, reporting, analysis of events and compliance.
