LGVs In The Frame

Posted 29.10.2015

Safe, responsible driving is a priority for everyone involved in our sector and Tripod Crest is now installing forward facing cameras into all its LGVs on a phased basis.

The kit has full HD resolution with a download facility to enable monitoring of driving styles, complete with recorded footage.

This will help provide evidence in the event of any incident – and will be very useful in terms of insurance claims too.

The following data can be downloaded via an SD card to give:

Full reporting on exact GPS location at any time with Google maps display and tracking
Real time recorded footage of the driver’s journey
Complete log of every incident recorded as a possible collision
History of the vehicle’s speed and any harsh braking events
Facility to monitor RPM, highlighting any excessive occurances
Audio recording from within the cab.

Managing director Darren Stokes believes that these cameras will really help both the drivers and the business. He said: “This new technology has been welcomed all round and we are already seeing the benefits. Safe, responsible driving and the protection of our workforce is a top priority.”
