A local transport company have been upgrading their fleet, replacing their tractor units with newer more efficient Iveco S-way models. These vehicles promise to help fleet owners reduce CO2 emissions and increase productivity. The customer turned to RS connect to ensure their vehicles complied with the Direct Vision Standard.
RS Connect were commissioned to provide a solution. This will enable the customer to operate the vehicle in and around Greater London. Their drivers will appreciate the increased visibility around the cab including the additional technology aids.
Facing time constraints and desire to keep downtime at a minimum, the best solution was for the customer to drop off the vehicle at our dedicated workshop in Coleshill. Time was of the essence enabling the unit to start work in the Greater London area. Without the DVS safety permit, the customer would be issued a £550 fixed penalty and £130 for the driver. We provided a one stop shop solution for the client including hardware and installation for this project.

The DVS Safe system we installed consisted of:
The DVS safe system was professionally installed in a few hours by our engineering team. Before the customer picked up the vehicle, we thoroughly tested the system to make sure everything was working smoothly.
Side view camera
The Customer requested the side camera be installed underneath the wing mirror. This allowed for better visibility of the side of the vehicle. The camera looked like it had always been there from the manufacturer. The left turn alarm was installed in a secure location, keeping it away from the harsh weather elements.
