Brigade - Vehicle Safety Radar System
Brigade launched their first reversing alarm for commercial vehicles in 1976 although it took a further 2 years before they were commercially installed. Since then, Brigade has developed many safety systems. Brigade is launching a new radar detection system, used on heavy machinery in the manufacturing and mining industries. Brigade engaged Propel to create an updated version of their Radar Configuration application.
The configuration software interfaces with the radar hardware to configure when the equipment warns the driver if there is an obstacle blocking their path.
Propel worked with Brigade to develop the connectivity to the hardware device and store the configuration data. The hardware devices were in a prototype stage when the software was being developed, meaning that the underlying communication protocols could change with each iteration of the hardware device. Propel Tech developed new communication protocols with the prototype hardware without the need to change the whole software system.
