Microlise Group to support operators in face of new DVS requirements


Microlise Group, provider of technology solutions, has announced its alignment with the latest Transport for London (TfL) Direct Vision Standards (DVS) requirements, set to take effect on Monday 28th October 2024. 

The Group’s commitment to enhancing road safety and compliance is stronger than ever, with the new mandate – that requires vehicles weighing 12 tonnes and above, rated below three stars, to install or upgrade to meet the requirements of TfL’s Progressive Safe System – firmly in its sights. 

The Progressive Safe System, a system of updated safety features, is a massive leap forward in protecting vulnerable road users across Greater London, with an ambitious target to eliminate deaths and serious injuries on London’s transport network by 2041. And Microlise’s safety products are perfectly placed to support vehicles that fall outside of the new guidelines. 

Microlise’s ClearVision multi-camera DVS solution is an innovative solution that not only adheres to the current standards, but is designed to meet the upcoming stricter requirements. The Group’s technology includes advanced features such as AI-powered blind-spot and moving-off information systems, providing in-cab warnings that significantly enhance driver awareness and safety. Its blind-spot cameras also record, with footage downloaded into the Microlise system for detailed analysis. 

Currently used by a number of high-profile transport and logistics companies, the Group’s product offering is further complemented by its recent acquisition of the renowned road safety products Flare and Flare Aware. Granting operators a deeper understanding of mobility risks and safety concerns, this technology turns the spotlight on micromobility, highlighting dynamic hazards such as vulnerable road users in a truly unique way. 

Speaking on the new DVS regulations, Steve Watson, Microlise Group’s Director of Product, said: “For fleets currently using our solutions, we are offering timely upgrades to ensure compliance with the new specifications. And we encourage those yet to join the Microlise network to reach out and to learn how our products and services can transform both fleet safety and compliance.”
