Eliminate vehicle Rollaways with RollGuard by The Vehicle Group
With modern electric handbrakes it’s not always easy to tell if the parking brake has been correctly applied. With RollGuard you can eliminate virtually all risk of rollaway incidents due to an incorrectly applied parking brake.
Imagine the driver is tired, or perhaps in a rush, or maybe they think they’ve pushed the electronic handbrake button when if fact they have not. With RollGuard you can remove the risk of human error. RollGuard receives data from a variety of inputs, including seat pressure sensors, vehicle CAN, speed, engine state and gear status to ensure the parking brake is engaged when it should be engaged.

How does RollGuard Work
Each Rollguard system is bespoke, with it’s own set of parameters and integration depending on the vehicle type. RollGuard analyses data sets from a variety of locations, including pressure sensors mounted in the drivers seat, to ensure the parking brake is engaged when it needs to be. The RollGuard system will only activate under a specific MPH range and has its own software to ensure reliability at all times.
RollGuard has an inbuilt data-logger that can record and report any ‘Parking Brake Significant Event’. During a significant event, the parking brake is automatically applied and the driver must acknowledge an audio alert. Fault diagnostic software is also included as standard in every RollGuard installation, making any ongoing support and maintenance cost and time effective.
What are the benefits?
- Bespoke system per vehicle type
- Inbuilt data logger records events
- Inbuilt diagnostic and maintenance software
- Audibly alerts driver
- OEM approved
- Puts the vehicle into neutral so not working against the parking brake
“The RollGuard system supplied by the Vehicle Group has been fitted on our new fleet of British Gypsum vehicles. This product prevents unplanned vehicle rollaways by not only recognising if the vehicle’s parking brake has been incorrectly applied, but also by detecting the vehicle CAN pressure.”
