Vehicle Safety Technology specialists since 1998, committed to reducing incidents, defend against unwarranted claims and improving the safe operation of commercial vehicles.

We offer a full and comprehensive range of safety systems, including bespoke, modular blind spot detection systems, multi camera digital video recording, audible warnings and tracking systems.

Backwatch sensor systems are own manufacture with ISO/TS16949, granted CE, E and TUV approval.

During 2011 we launched our blind spot sensor system, that was subject to extensive independent trials by AECOM on behalf of Transport for London. Following this successful trial we were granted approved supplier status by TFL. Systems are Crossrail and CLOCS compliant.

The systems have now developed to a stage we can offer customers a bespoke solution, with a wireless link between tractors and trailers, fully interchangeable between their entire fleet.

We pride ourselves on offering a responsive and personal service to all customers, irrespective of size. Our network of experienced fitment teams provide onsite service across the UK at a time to suit business needs, with no extra charge for Saturdays, Sundays or Evening work.

In consultation with our clients, we aim to fully understand their challenges and needs, helping them to select the most appropriate system to meet compliance requirements and gain maximum benefit from the systems they choose.

Aasvogel in Wantage have installed Backwatch systems in all their vehicles, comprising of surround recording systems, blind spot sensors and external warnings to cyclists when turning left. Aasvogel were experiencing significant claims against them, from damage to vehicles, property and reports of items falling from their Lorries.



All Backwatch safety products are manufactured to the highest standards and supplied with a comprehensive warranty.

Selecting the best solution for your vehicles is of paramount importance. The right system can significantly reduce the time spent resolving disputes and dealing with unnecessary accident claims. The cost of installation is a small price to pay in reducing potential casualties or loss of life. Can you afford to take that risk?

We are especially proud to be approved by both the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) in conjunction with Transport for London (TFL) and Crossrail.

The Mayor’s transport strategy has called for a revolution in the way we travel around London, with cycling journeys having increased twofold in recent years. Backwatch has been chosen to address these issues and make road travel safer for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

Cameras allow a continuous view of blind spots and can be combined with recording systems for reporting and training purposes. Both of these in-cab alerts can be combined with external warnings to alert the cyclist or pedestrian of the vehicle’s next manoeuvre.
