Refuse collection vehicles are large, with a variety of blind spots, so are often difficult and hazardous to drive. On top of this, they are usually operated in narrow streets in built-up areas so the risk of collisions – with parked vehicles, other road users and members of the public – is particularly high compared to other industries. This leads to real and bogus accusations that result in costly claims if waste operators have no visibility of what has happened.
Video telematics protects waste operators from fraudulent allegations and streamlines the investigation of and response to of genuine claims. Footage and supporting vehicle data can be accessed immediately through our Microsoft Azure-hosted, cloud-based IoT platform, which can also identify areas of improvement to working and driver behavior to improve safety and fuel efficiency.
