Cheltenham-based environmental services provider Ubico is installing four-way camera recording equipment and reverse radars from Innovative Safety Systems (ISS) to around 40 refuse vehicles. The technology will form part of the company’s future vehicle specifications.
The RX3 hard disk recording system comes with high-resolution infrared cameras, monitors and a protective lockable housing. Embedded features include speed, XYZ acceleration and GPS.
ISS’s reverse radar is programmable with multiple settings and ranges. It detects both moving and stationary objects without requiring a closing distance.
Ubico also plans to use the system’s LANlink remote footage download facility when all of its depots are fully operational. This will enable recorded footage to be downloaded automatically each time a vehicle returns to the depot.
