Press release from: Vision Techniques

For Rotherham Council, installing the innovative mobile recording camera system, VT ‘Live’, into its waste disposal vehicles was a huge success.

The council, which had a number of unfounded claims made against it, needed a vehicle recording camera system for security and safety.

After using the system for three months Rotherham Council intends to install VT ‘Live’ in more of its waste disposal and kerb vehicles.

Craig Simpson, Transport Manager at Rotherham Council, said: “It’s been a huge benefit to the council.

“As well as increasing vehicle safety, it has dramatically reduced claims made against us.

“Previously, the whole investigation process was impossible to conduct. But now we can monitor it ourselves.

“It has saved money for numerous reasons - which is fantastic in the current

With GPS equipped digital video recorders (DVR) such as VT ‘Live’, incidents can be reviewed immediately - because the vehicle operator can simply press an ‘alert button’, which sends an e-mail or text message back to base.

The incredible vehicle safety system acts as a live in-vehicle digital video recorder - with many features such as a Video Gateway with remote connectivity, GPS fleet tracking system, two-way push-to-talk audio and even a real-time system health check.

This means people monitoring the vehicles can track the exact location of the entire fleet. And the vehicle operators will be completely aware of potential problems. Both base and vehicle operators can easily communicate.

Mr Simpson said: “Another great thing about VT ‘Live’ is that we no longer need to use mobile phones to communicate. It’s much simpler now.”

Experts at Vision Techniques advise councils to consider using VT ‘Live’ as their main DVR.

Steve Perrin, Manager at Vision Techniques, said: “It’s a great system for several reasons. No wonder it worked so well for Rotherham Council.

“One advantage, of course, is that when you use ‘VT ‘Live’ vehicle DVR’ you no longer have to wait until the vehicle returns to the depot to find out what happened.

“And features such as the real-time health check makes VT ‘Live’ the very best in vehicle safety equipment.”

Rotherham Council is extremely pleased with all the help and support Vision Techniques offered.

Mr Simpson said: “I would definitely recommend Vision Techniques to other councils because they offer excellent customer service and advice.

“We have a great relationship - and we will be working with them again in the future.”

Vehicle recording systems such as VT ‘Live’ are vital to ensuring vehicle safety and vehicle security.

VT ‘Live’ can be used in numerous vehicles - acting as, for example, van security or a truck DVR.
