Vehicle and machine safety – Eliminating blind spots

You may not be familiar with this new rule, but The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) has come into effect this year – enforced by Transport For London. This new rule means that all heavy-duty vehicles over 12 tons in the city of London MUST have a safety permit or they will incur a fine of £550. Therefore, HGV’s must ensure they have the correct safety functions preventing a fine, but most importantly, protect them and other road users’ lives.

Everyday society dreads the fear of HGV incidents and life-threatening accidents, so it is a priority to provide safe solutions. You can read more about vehicle and machine safety here and learn about the DVS regulation in detail…

Orlaco have provided a solution with their camera and radar-based monitoring systems – meeting the requirements for the DVS, vehicles can then drive into the City of London. Orlaco focus on improved vision and help with viewing of loads; tooling; trailers and blind spots.

Orlacos' SideEye - Turn Assist System

The SideEye is one of the products we proudly offer our customers. The camera and detection system alerts drivers when road users are present in the blind spot of the truck. This not only helps the driver but increases protection against vulnerable road users.
