Pallet Network Anglia (PNA) has invested in vision-based camera technology which warns the driver of his proximity to other road users and potential hazards.
Mobileye assesses and gives an audible warning about lane departure or a closing gap between the truck and vehicles in front, and it marks the presence and trajectory of vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. It also reminds the driver of relevant speed limits.
The cameras have been fitted to each of PNA’s 20 HGVs.
MD Richard Gilbert says the company felt road safety was too important not to invest in the best technology available but was surprised at how much the drivers have appreciated the extra help. “We’ve had lots of positive comments about how much it aids safety and how much help they find it,” says Gilbert. “We’ve always been very strong on staff and public safety and taking on such sophisticated technology is a natural extension of that. It is expensive but if it keeps people safer, then it is worth every penny.”
