Vision Techniques is set to install the latest safety and security technology into vehicles at Aylesbury Vale District Council in Buckinghamshire.
The council has opted to install many vehicle safety features including Banksman reversing radar, safety light boards and VT Live – a full service on-board digital recording camera system.
Barry Waters, Transport Manager at Aylesbury Vale District Council, said: “The upgrade will help the council endlessly because we will be able to audit the vehicles more efficiently.
“It is likely to save money for numerous reasons – such as false insurance claims, and preventing reversing accidents.”
With GPS equipped vehicle DVR system, VT Live, means incidents can be reviewed immediately.
The incredible vehicle safety system acts as a live in-vehicle digital video recorder – with many features such as a video gateway with remote connectivity, GPS fleet tracking system, two-way push-to-talk audio and even a real-time system health check.
Not only are vehicle operators completely aware of potential problems but headquarters can check every vehicle in the entire fleet – as well as enabling simple, effective communication.
Banksman Radar is an intelligent, fully-programmable reversing radar detection system designed to an early warning signal – alerting the operator the potential danger.
Experts at Vision Techniques say using both VT Live and Banksman Radar will completely prevent collisions .
Richard Marsh, of Vision Techniques, said: “The advantage to installing both the VT Live system and Banksman reversing radar is that the camera system’s early warning signs completely eradicates the chances of a collision.
“And with the VT Live camera system you no longer have to wait until the vehicle returns to the depot to find out what happened.”
Vehicle recording systems such as VT Live and Banksman Radar are vital to ensuring vehicle safety and vehicle security.
VT Live and Banksman Reversing Radar can be used in a number of vehicles – including forklift, van, HGV, lorry and commercial vehicles.
