  • Speedshield Speed and Acceleration Control
  • Speedshield Logic Based Driver Restraints
  • Speedshield Transmission Control


In order to address speed issues Speedshield has been installed to control the maximum vehicle speed on the 3 sites.

To ensure drivers are using the vehicle seatbelts correctly Star Track has implemented Speedshield’s Logic Based Driver Restraint System. This technology allows for combinations of seat, seatbelt and handbrake interlocks to trigger alarms and power down the vehicle. These alarms and power down functions have user configurable time periods should the operator not engage or disengage the interlocks in the correct order.

Star Track Express has implemented Speedshield Transmission Control which protects the vehicle transmission from being forced into forward or reverse whilst traveling in the opposite direction.
