Garbage and Waste

Vehicle safety systems for the waste industry.

Garbage trucks and waste trucks are typically large and heavy, making them less manoeuvrable compared to regular passenger vehicles, weight can result in longer stopping distances and difficulty navigating through narrow residential streets, crowded junctions, and pedestrian-heavy areas.

Due to the design of these vehicles, drivers have limited visibility around the truck, especially on the sides and rear. Workers, pedestrians and cyclists may inadvertently find themselves in blind spots, making them vulnerable to accidents and collisions when the driver is unaware of their presence.

Problems within the garbage and waste industry

While garbage collection is an essential service, operating garbage trucks and waste vehicles in urban areas can cause problems, such as:


  • Receiving complaints about noisy reversing alarms
  • Damage being made to parked vehicles
  • Collisions happening with people, cyclists and objects
  • Reversing accidents due to the rear blind spot
  • Receiving false accusations of damage to vehicles or property
To address these risks, cities, towns, councils and waste management companies need to implement safety measures. Fitting our advanced safety technology to waste and garbage trucks will support drivers with manoeuvring their vehicles safely and help them avoid collisions with people and objects. Overall, our systems will enhance the safety of the communities in which waste and garbage vehicles operate by preventing injuries and deaths.
