VT won the award for VT TurnAware cyclist detection system that is the first in the waste industry to use video analytic detection to recognise approaching hazards like cyclists whilst ignoring objects moving away like road furniture – preventing false alarming.

A wide range of companies, as well as councils and individuals, scooped prizes at the awards, which recognise and reward successful initiatives designed to reduce environmental impact and improve resource efficiency. The winners were announced at the London Marriott Grosvenor Square at a ceremony hosted by Nick Hewer, presenter of Countdown and Alan Sugar’s right-hand man on The Apprentice.
