Bomag has announced that one of the technologies from the Robomag concept, Bomag emergency brake assist, is now approaching series production.

Bomag emergency brake assist Bomag says that its emergency brake assist is nearing production readiness

The company’s emergency brake assist scans the construction machine’s operational environment in real time and recognises both moving and static obstacles and objects. Objects that could potentially be put at risk by the machine’s movement are automatically detected by the system.

If a collision is imminent, it initiates automatic deceleration down to a complete stop. The company says that, by pre-emptively averting potential hazards, the technology marks a significant milestone in enhancing on-site safety.

The emergency brake assist was presented with a Gold Award at the recent Intermat Innovation awards in Paris in the‚ Roads, Materials and Foundations Industries‘ category.

In cooperation with selected customers, Bomag says it will test the Emergency Brake Assist on various construction sites this year.

Emergency Brake Assist is compatible with Bomag’s fifth-generation tandem rollers and therefore independent of use beyond just a fully autonomous asphalt roller. As the technology nears production readiness, the final certification is being worked on in cooperation with experts. Once certification has been granted, interested customers will have access to the technology’s full range of capabilities.
