Bus & Coach

With city buses and coaches operating 24 hours, 7 days a week - proper maintenance is necessary.  Changing drivers, tight timetables and strict environmental requirements make this incredibly challenging.  Groeneveld specializes in these challenges with quality automatic lubrication and oil systems.

Automatically lubricates better

Manual lubrication of steering joints, axles and articulating systems is dirty, unpleasant, time-consuming work.  With manual lubrication, it is more difficult for the grease to reach all surfaces, resulting in extra wear.  Automatic lubrication with a Groeneveld system is a great solution and offers major benefits:

  • Reducing wear/tear to save time and money 
  • Longer life span of the lubricated components
  • Less costs and downtime 
  • Higher residual value 
  • Up to 50% less grease consumption due to optimum dosing 
  • Grease spreads out easily across the surface to be lubricated because lubrication takes place while the vehicle is in operation
  • Grease is applied in small amounts at regular intervals and a grease collar is created around the pivot point
  • Dirt and water are kept out (also during high pressure cleaning)

Reduce risks, enhance safety

Groeneveld's Greensight obstacle detection and camera systems offer an excellent solution to increase safety. Here are some benefits:

  • Ultrasonic acoustic warning system 
  • Improved safety around the bus or coach
  • Less risk of damage and personal injury
  • Increased uptime 
  • No information overload for the driver
  • Fully integrated and modular system 
  • Fully adjustable to the application and the customer's wishes 
  • Expandable with the unique Smart alarm, the sound level of which will be automatically adapted to the ambient noise

Greensight obstacle detection system

Greensight is available as an obstacle detection system, camera system (or combination of both).  Ultrasound detects obstacles in pre-set zones accurately: the detection area consists of three zones, each with its own level of detection.  The system can also be expanded with sensors on the side or top of the vehicle.  As soon as an obstacle is detected, an acoustic signal is sounded for the driver:  He will then see on the display, in which zone the obstacle is located.  The driver will be able to fully concentrate on his work and be warned as soon as a person or object enters the area.

Application of the ultrasonic sensors will increase safety considerably.

Modular system

The Greensight system can be set up modularly.  It is an integrated solution that can be adapted to the application with modifiable detection areas.  All components shown below can be individually connected to the control unit.

1. Control unit

The control unit is the core of each Greensight system.  For smaller systems Groeneveld supplies a control unit with six connections, for larger systems a control unit with 15 connections.  As a result, each system can be built up modularly.

2. Sensors

The basic components of the Greensight detection system are the two sensors on the rear of the vehicle.  The compact sensors detect objects that have a diameter larger than 75 mm.  The in-cab display warns the driver through light and acoustic signals.

3. Additional sensors

To expand the obstacle detection system, sensors are available to mount on top or sides of the vehicle. This enlarges the detection area of the vehicle.

4. Camera system

The obstacle detection system can be expanded with the Groeneveld camera system, which can also function independently.

5. Smart alarm

The Greensight ultrasonic safety system warns the driver with acoustic and light signals. By expanding the system with the Smart alarm, people close to the vehicle are warned as soon as Greensight observes them (or an obstacle).  An acoustic signal sounds only when necessary, warning bystanders to stay alert.  The volume of the Smart alarm automatically adapts to ambient noise.

Greensight camera system

In addition to the ultrasonic detection system, Groeneveld supplies a high quality camera system, significantly improving visibility for the driver (a solution for blind spots). Four cameras can be connected to the monitor, with all four of the camera images displayed in a split screen.  The Groeneveld camera system can be used as a stand alone, or as a supplement to the Greensight ultrasonic detection system:  A combination that significantly improves safety, while increasing the comfort of the driver.

Unique characteristics

  • Clear and sharp images
  • No condensation and frost issues due to automatically heated lens surface
  • Possible expansion up to four cameras
  • CAN-bus connectivity prepared
  • High sensitivity at 0.025 lux (good visibility with little light)
  • Switches easily between different camera images

Always the correct level of oil

Groeneveld's Oilmaster system ensures that oil is always at an optimum level.  This saves time and prevents costly engine damage.  Here are some benefits:

  • No need to check the oil level and fill manually
  • Time gain and ease on the road
  • Always the optimum oil level and correct oil specification
  • No engine damage as a result of oil inefficiencies in the engine
  • Less downtime as a result of repair and maintenance
  • Less risk of damaging expensive exhaust gas after treatment systems
  • Lower oil consumption
  • No risk of increased fuel consumption due to overfilling
  • Less oil required during oil change
  • Lower costs

Reliable operation

The oil level in the engine is measured via a sensor.  If this level drops below a pre-defined amount, the Oilmaster will automatically fill half a litre of oil, regardless of temperature and viscosity. Information about the amount of oil added is stored in the internal memory and can be used to perform preventive maintenance.

System overview

The Oilmaster oil management system consists of the following components:

  1. Oil reservoir
  2. Pump unit
  3. Control light
  4. Sump plug
  5. Oil level sensor

The Oilmaster is available in a standard and heavy duty version:
