An extra pair of eyes on the road – CKO Live-View
‘Live-view’ is going to change the game for hauliers, putting them ahead of the competition by providing real-time video footage back at the yard – so you know who has had a incident, and who was responsible, before the truck has even returned – the end result? Your truck, back out on a job while others are just reporting an incident to their insurer.
In the last ten years the HGV and haulage industry has come under far greater scrutiny and regulation with a view to increased awareness of and responsibility toward other more vulnerable road users. All HGV’s (regardless of their country of origin or operation) using UK roads face an increasingly hostile environment, where high profile road deaths have turned public opinion against the industry and the dangers to cyclists and pedestrians have informed new road safety standards such as FORS (The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) and CLOCS (Construction Logistics and Community Safety).
CKO have been involved in the design, development and distribution of audio-visual and electronic systems to the commercial and passenger vehicle market for over 30 years.
Sadly, some individuals are taking advantage of these tragedies and making malicious false claims against HGV’s and vans. Drivers that once considered the use video surveillance as ‘Big Brother’ are now grateful for irrefutable proof of their innocence. The growth in fake claims is sending commercial insurance premiums soaring, so investment in video equipment makes excellent business sense.
“The extra pair of eyes in a lorry cab has other benefits too, getting your truck back on the road after an incident is paramount and avoiding it in the first place is even better” says Jackie Collins, Director of Operations. “Our extensive range provides solutions for rear, front and side vision, safe reversing and manoeuvring, we have systems with 360 views and inward facing cameras to monitor drivers as well as the periphery of the truck. For a number of years DVR’s (Digital Video Recorders) have been available through CKO with SD card or hard drive technology, but our ‘Live- View System’ is a game-changer”.
“The real breakthrough with it is that it enables real-time viewing both in the cab and back at base. Any incidents prompt email alerts so your transport manager can have begun to deal with it before the vehicle is even back in the yard. This puts you ahead of your competitors when it comes to getting your trucks back out to work in the shortest possible time”.
“Not only that but our system allows critical information to be sent back too – GPS mapping, vehicle location and speed, historical tracking, up to 16 live-feeds, multiple vehicles on one interface, remote download and change of settings capacity – the system offers you so much more than a video feed and it can be accessed through a phone app, laptop or back on the desktop in the office. That is a lot of additional functionality at a really affordable cost”.
