The FORS Gold operator has numerous contracts with London councils and authorities, and decided to invest in additional safety equipment for its vehicles.
Sentinel’s solution included forward, side scan and rear cameras, with the cameras linked to an in-cab mobile digital video recorder, which records up to 30 days of footage.
The vehicles have also been equipped with Sentinel’s LED cycle signs, which warn cyclists approaching the rear of the vehicle when it is about to turn left.
“Sentinel’s systems help the driver with 360° vision, increasing their awareness of other road users, particularly more vulnerable cyclists and pedestrians. The system also provides invaluable evidence when it comes to potential insurance claims,” says Steve King, plant and transport manager for Riney.
He adds: “We chose Sentinel is for its product reliability, and the ability to back-up footage on an SD card is a very useful tool for our business... Because of the quality service we received, our six recently purchased HGVs will all be installed with Sentinel’s LED cycle sign and camera systems.”
