Wüllhorst and Orlaco offer innovative views on safety
Increasing numbers of big cities now require trucks to be equipped with blind spot monitoring systems. The EU is also expected to make these blind spot monitoring systems compulsory. The best, tested safety systems from Wüllhorst and Orlaco are now available in the DAF Webshop.
In Greater London, the London Direct Vision Standard (DVS) has been in force since October 2020. This means that vehicles weighing over 12 tonnes may operate in this region only if the truck owners have taken the appropriate visibility measures and obtained the required permits. In Germany, extra-long vehicles currently have to be fitted with a blind spot monitoring system. Legislation has also been prepared for other types of trucks in Germany. You could face substantial fines if you fail to comply with the required measures, so don't wait too long to make the necessary adaptations to your fleet.
Safe in Germany and the UK
Several types of blind spot monitoring systems are available in the DAF Webshop, including our new Wüllhorst 4.0 kit and Orlaco SideEye. These intelligent systems consist of a radar unit and camera, and are both approved by the German authorities. With a few small additions they also comply with UK DVS legislation.
