Reliable truck collision avoidance for parking and maneuvering – with radar sensors.

Parking trucks for loading and unloading is tedious and time-consuming. Insufficient visibility due to blind angles, bad weather or night operations repeatedly lead to damages to loading docks, parking bays and vehicles as well as serious accidents. Our radar solution for truck collision avoidance enables reliable distance measurement when maneuvering large vehicles. The radar sensor mounted at the end of the vehicle records the exact distance to the loading ramp at all times. The driver can then be informed early about impending collisions via a display in the cockpit. This prevents damage and accidents caused by collisions with loading docks, walls, vehicles or people. Our radar technology is also suitable for adverse environments and always delivers reliable measurement results - even in noise, vibrations, poor visibility, dust, water vapor, heat, cold, rain or snow.

With OndoSense radar sensors, trucks can be loaded and unloaded quickly and safely. Our radar solution prevents unplanned downtime due to damage to the truck or loading dock, thereby saving costs. The radar sensor is also suitable for retrofitting vehicles. Stationary anti-collision systems on loading ramps and parking bays are also possible with our radar.

Safe parking of trucks at the loading dock - with radar

Your added value with radar


Reliable truck collision avoidance.

  • Reliable truck operations even with poor visibility, temperature variations, vibrations or noise.
  • Our radar also prevents truck collisions outdoors - in rain, fog, smoke or dust.


Avoids unplanned truck downtime.

  • By preventing unplanned downtime due to damages to truck or loading dock, our radar saves costs.
  • The radar sensor is also suitable for vehicle retrofitting and for stationary anti-collision systems.


Safe, speedy truck loading.

  • Our robust, reliable radar sensor solution enables safe and quick unloading and loading of the truck.
  • The high measurement rate of the radar sensor prevents truck collisions, even during fast movements.
