From company car fleets and coaches to lorries and emergency vehicles, your concern may be about minimising exposure to false accident claims using in-cab driver monitoring and safety tracking, efficient passenger area monitoring or ensuring load security through dashcams and vehicle cameras.
Whatever your specific fleet management need, the great news is that ProVision's range of cameramatics recording and tracking solutions can meet any need in any configuration. And if your fleet tracking or corporate management needs change tomorrow, the systems can be easily upgraded, which means that your initial investment is never wasted!
Our fleet management and fleet tracking usage examples below show the typical configurations of system type, number of cameras and placement on vehicles such as Taxis, Light Commercial Vehicles and HGVs.

Both articulated HGVs and rigid trucks can be protected with a range of cameras to give a surround view of the goods vehicle cab and payload. The typical configuration of HGV cameras includes a forward camera and two side cameras. Rigid trucks can also have a rear camera fitted for additional coverage.
In some cases, In-cab cameras are selected to cover the driver’s position and the cab itself. Additional cameras can be fitted into the lorry's box body where visibility and protection of the load is required.
Light Commercial Vehicles require just 4 cameras to achieve a full 360-degree view of the road ahead, behind and to each side. Installing a forward facing camera in the cab to act as a dashcam, two side cameras mounted at the cab seating level and a rear camera to monitor the road and act as van CCTV for any break ins, ProVision Cameramatics can cover all angles.
In some cases, In-cab cameras are selected to cover the driver’s position and the cab itself for extra peace of mind when carrying precious or valuable cargo. Additional tracking cameras can be fitted into the box body where visibility and protection of the load is required.
Buses and coaches have specific camera monitoring needs due to the passenger carrying nature of their use, including at risk groups such as school children and older travellers.
We typically find that a 6 or 7 camera configuration is effective to monitor the road, surroundings and passenger area. External to the vehicle this includes forward and rear coach mounted cameras, plus two side cameras.
While inside the vehicle, a driver cab camera and front and/or rear passenger-facing bus CCTV cameras are most often chosen for bus, minibus and coach safety and security.
Specialised Vehicles designed for specific purposes require bespoke configurations to ensure complete camera coverage and tracking. Construction vehicles such as dumper trucks, diggers and cranes, warehousing forklifts and public service dust carts and cherry pickers can all be monitored and have cameras installed to meet their specific needs. Adding a forward facing camera in the cab gives a dashcam style view of the road ahead, which can be supported by side mounted cameras to view lanes and approaching traffic at roundabouts and junctions. A rear camera can also act as vehicle CCTV in case of break ins and give warning of tailgaters, cyclists and banksmen concealed by blind spots.
Emergency service vehicles require a high level of camera protection to ensure every possible detail is covered when travelling at high speed and negotiating traffic whilst responding to an emergency. This requires a 5 camera configuration, encompassing forward and rear cameras, plus two side vehicle mounted cameras and an in-cab camera.
For passenger carrying vehicles, such as ambulances, an interior camera is often added for the protection of patients and paramedics. This is also a popular option with police to ensure passenger and officer welfare.
Small Vans (Car Derived Vans) and courtesy, rental or lease fleet cars can achieve adequate protection by fitting 2 cameras, front and rear. However, most installations typically use a single forward facing car CCTV camera to monitor the road ahead.
Taxi fleet owners may also choose to add an additional Taxi CCTV camera within the passenger area to monitor any incidents. Depending on the value of goods and tools carried in car derived vans, an internal van CCTV camera can also prove a worthwhile investment.
