Sensible sensors: Brigade welcomes Direct Vision amendment22 January 2020

Brigade Electronics has welcomed a change to London’s Direct Vision Standard (DVS) requirements to prevent “false positive” alerts when vehicles are turning left.

The DVS specification previously said that sensors should not be set off by street furniture; this has now been updated to state that sensors on artic cabs must be “suitably positioned to provide sufficient coverage, but preventing activation solely on articulation of the trailer”.

“This new wording now offers more flexibility on the positioning of sensors on tractor units and resolves one of our main concerns on this specification,” says Emily Hardy, UK marketing manager of Brigade Electronics.

She adds: “We know that professional fitting of sensors can make a world of difference to their effectiveness.”

The Kent-based business offers a range of vehicle safety devices, including the Sidescan sensor system, pictured.
