Innovative Safety Systems Ltd (ISS), vehicle safety and visibility technology specialists, are demonstrating their market-leading portfolio of products at PAWRS this year with the assistance of augmented reality Ipads that recognise images and trigger information specific to each user.

Gavin Thoday, Director, ISS: “We have already trialled this technology and the feedback has been great. Visitors can find out more about a specific product quickly and in an engaging way that doesn’t involved reading a brochure!”

ISS supplies, installs and maintains the full range of safety and lighting products including reversing radars, CCTV camera systems, Hard Disk Recording, warning beacons and LED lighting packages.

The company recently moved to larger, purpose built premises in Coventry and has expanded all areas of its operations with additional engineers on the road, more staff working on stock assembly and technical support, and a bigger back office team.

It’s latest DVR 4 Hard Disk Recording solution provides 360° coverage and incorporates additional features including mapping software and a dashboard with vehicle data such as speed, brakes indicators and G forces.

Nigel Harris, Waste & Environmental Protection Manager for Lichfield & Tamworth Shared Waste Service, said: “The safety of the public and our crews comes first so radars are a must-have. We had used CCTV and recording equipment before but this new technology is much more user-friendly. The recordings are in ‘true image’, not in the traditional ‘mirror view’, which can be very confusing and they can be uploaded directly to our computers or laptops. There is a dashboard providing detailed information about what manoeuvres the vehicle is performing and what equipment is in use, all in real-time.

“ISS offered us the best package and the best value for money. The kit was installed and completed in one week.”

The ISS system was recently recommended to Hills Waste Solutions by Wiltshire Council.

Ian McKinnon, Transport Officer, Environment Services Fleet, Wiltshire Council said: “We trialled the ISS system a couple of years ago on the kerbside recycling vehicles that are operated by Hills as part of their waste management contract with the council. Due to efficiency of the products and the longer warranty period we decided to convert to ISS from our previous supplier. Since then we have installed ISS DVR systems and reversing radars to around 30 vehicles. The service from ISS is first class especially as they also maintain equipment installed by a previous supplier so we have one contact for all our vehicle safety needs.”
