Safety alert if vulnerable road users are in proximity

W 2000 eligia 2 img 1868

Ellgia, a provider of bespoke commercial waste management solutions, has invested in a new trade vehicle that will service its commercial customers in Cambridge and Newmarket.

The truck is fitted with the latest weighing equipment to enable Ellgia to give its customers accurate details of their waste products, as well as added safety technology.

Steve Crook, managing director, said: “It is fitted with up-to-the-minute cycle safety tech – the system comprises an illuminated sign and speaker to alert cyclists and vulnerable road users when a vehicle is turning left. It also has an optional sequencing sensor that alerts the driver when a cyclist or pedestrian is approaching.”

The company operates a pay-by-weight solution, using the latest container weighing and identification technology to ensure that customers only pay for what they dispose of. It records information including: waste type and weight, location details, date and time, container size and type.
