Sentinel Systems has become an accredited supplier to the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) for its range of vehicle camera and sensor systems.
This means its products have been approved by the organisation for use on vehicles that are looking to achieve a FORS accreditation.
Marshall Fleming, general manager at Sentinel Systems, said: “We have been connected with FORS for many years, having sponsored a number of events and have always supported its work within the industry.
"We are very honoured to now be working with itas an official supplier and hope we can help make an impact on the safety of vehicles across the UK.
"Many of our customers are accredited by FORS and we are now pleased that our products can contribute to their accreditation.”
Sentinel offers a wide range of cameras, including specialist reversing, side-scanning and forward- facing cameras, which together can give a full 360° view of the vehicle’s surroundings.
With this, drivers are able to identify pedestrians, cyclists, third-party vehicles and buildings, giving them enough notice to take caution when manoeuvring.
All installed cameras are linked to Sentinel’s split-screen in-cab monitor for a permanent view at all times.
The cameras can be supported by a mobile DVR unit, complete with an extractable 1TB hard drive to capture footage to be used in a crash-for-cash or other defence claim.
Similarly, Sentinel’s detection sensors offer drivers a valuable warning of obstructions and can be installed at the rear or nearside of the vehicle.
The sensors are set to identify pedestrians, cyclists or other objects within a predetermined distance and give an audible warning to the driver via an in-cab alarm.
