The company has committed to installing Sentinel’s award-winning cyclists detection system to all new vehicles added to its growing fleet, as well as retrofitting the system to many of the its existing vehicles. This will allow the company to continue to provide vehicles for use within the London area as they comply with the new CrossRail regulations* and allow drivers to operate in congested areas without posing a threat to vulnerable cyclists, pedestrians or other road users.
Designed to detect cyclists within the blind spot of the vehicle, the intelligent system will audibly warn the driver of the hazard allowing them to take caution when manoeuvring and in particular, turning left.
ND Brown has also installed Sentinel’s 4-camera systems on its larger vehicles, with digital recorders to offer all-round visibility to its customers, giving them the safest possible driving experience.
With four depots across the UK, ND Brown Ltd has a fleet of over 450 vehicles, including tippers, tipper grabs, hot box vehicles and other large HGVs from 3½ to 32 tonne GVW for a wide variety of requirements. The company has a large customer base spread across the UK with many vehicles used in large cities, including London, with operations often within heavily pedestrianised or congested areas.
