Safety for RCV drivers, crews and other road users has become increasingly important to operators. We have designed and manufactured our own Safety Solutions range to benefit our customers in several ways:
Each product is designed to reduce accidents, repair bills, vehicle downtime and insurance claims – both genuine and bogus.
Customers simply include whichever products they want in their vehicle spec.
Products in the Safety Solutions range are:
Our outstanding Safety Solutions Five Camera DVR System provides unrivalled protection for the crew, the public and the operator. It sees and records everything that happens around the vehicle.
Four of the five cameras are individually mounted at the front, on each side and at the rear to provide a full 360O field of view. Crystal clear live images from them are displayed on a seven-inch in-cab screen.
The fifth camera is focused on the vital work area and is displayed on the in-cab body screen, ensuring extra protection for the crew.
An eight-channel system records footage from each camera on a durable, vibration and shock-resistant solid state 1TB hard drive.
By helping the driver to see clearly what is around the vehicle, this RCV camera system helps prevent accidents and protects the crew and other road users.
The whole RCV camera system, including the hard drive, is fully integrated and factory-fitted.
Our camera system can be fully integrated with DE-Connect so back-office staff can see live video and carry out camera system health checks. A special ‘crash reconstruction playback’ feature ensures any bumps or jolts to the vehicle are quickly flagged up to drivers and operators.
The Five Camera DVR System comes with full Aftermarket support including timely maintenance, prompt repairs and fully stocked parts on our Electronic Parts Catalogue (EPC). We are also able to provide an Aftermarket retrofit option through our service network.
In cluttered, busy urban streets and tight rural roads, one of the biggest challenges faced by drivers is reversing.
Our Safety Solutions Reverse Radar Assistant system helps the driver with reversing manoeuvres. An in-cab display detects both people and other significant objects at the rear and alerts the driver with a visible and audible warning.
When the vehicle gets close to an obstacle – in the ‘red zone’ – the brakes are automatically applied and stop the vehicle from colliding with it. They are locked on for three seconds before being released.
At this point, if the same obstacle is still there, our RCV reverse radar system allows the driver to reverse with caution. Meanwhile, the display continues to signal that the obstacle is still there.
If the obstacle leaves the red zone and then returns or if something else enters the red zone during the same reversing manoeuvre, the brakes will re-apply.
By doing so, this RCV reverse radar system allows drivers to maintain control throughout but alerts them to obstacles and gives them time to take note of them so they can manoeuvre with appropriate caution.
The Reverse Radar Assistant is usually factory-fitted but we are also able to provide an Aftermarket retrofit option through our service network.
It comes with full Aftermarket support including timely maintenance, prompt repairs and fully stocked parts on our Electronic Parts Catalogue (EPC).
An RCV turn alarm is a simple but very effective feature that can save lives by telling cyclists and pedestrians that the vehicle is about to make a left turn.
Our Safety Solutions Turn Alarm provides a spoken alarm to tell clear, loud message that says: “Attention, this vehicle is turning left”. And it is repeated until the left indicator is cancelled.
The system is also linked to the vehicle’s road speed and will de-activate when the vehicle is traveling at speeds greater than 30mph.
As Dennis Eagle is the OEM, this RCV turn alarm can be factory-fitted and it comes with full support from our Aftermarket team including spare parts on our Electronic Parts Catalogue (EPC).
