Durite highlights road safety tech at Stoneleigh

Vehicle safety, lighting and auto electrical parts specialist Durite will use next month’s Road Transport Expo to demonstrate how AI and digital systems are improving road safety — and how this can attract more young people into the industry.

Durite will showcase its demo van on stand R45 in hall 1 at the RTX in Stoneleigh, Warwickshire, on June 4-6.

The vehicle is equipped with a combination of the company’s safety innovations, highlighting how Durite can help to support fleet compliance with standards such as the DVS Phase 2, FORS, and CLOCS.

Technology on the vehicle includes Durite’s DVR kits, 4G live-streaming DVR and CCTV kits, AI and progressive safe systems, innovative lighting and smart telematics tracking.

Durite said the stand’s innovation corner will feature its HD range of cameras and the new driver status monitoring system that uses AI to warn drivers of potential dangers they face daily such as fatigue and distractions.

Compliance

The system can be combined with Durite’s ADAS technology.

John Nobbs, UK sales manager for Durite, said the demo van is a great way for fleet operators to see how combining and integrating systems can help with compliance and reduce road risk.

Meanwhile, Durite is taking part in the ‘School of Thought Automotive’ programme highlighting opportunities for young people in the automotive and fleet sector.

School of Thought Automotive is an industry initiative to enhance recruitment and retention of young people. It will bring year 11 students aged 15 and 16 from local schools and colleges to attend the opening day of the expo. On the Durite stand, they will be able to experience the challenges of driving an HGV using an interactive truck and logistics simulator game.
