Four cameras for safety

bike hotspot system

Vehicle safety specialist Sentinel Systems has worked with resources management company Bywaters to produce safer trans­port solutions for waste vehicles.

Bywaters has installed Senti­nel’s system of four cameras along with the Bike Hotspot System on more than half of its 50-strong fleet. Mohamed Abdurahim, logistics support manager, said: “We particularly wanted to work with a company that handles all installations and services in-house rather than subcontract engineers.”

Sentinel’s four-camera system allows drivers to see their vehicle’s 360° surroundings, including blind spots. This view is created using high-quality cameras posi­tioned at the rear, front and sides of the vehicle, and is tailored to the safety requirements of the fleet based on day-to-day operations.

Refuse collection vehicles in particular often require employees to travel outside the vehicle, which instantly poses a hazard to them­selves and the driver. Now able to see people or objects, particularly at the rear, a driver can prevent a collision when manoeuvring.
