Asphalt FM
ARTICLE
The asphalt plant at Doncaster is responsible for both collections and deliveries and as such the control of vehicle movements is paramount for safety. Control had previously been achieved using a tannoy system but this generated complaints from local residents over noise levels, especially early in the morning.

This problem was resolved by using an FM transmitter to communicate with customers. Upon entering the site, vehicle radios were instructed to tune into a specific FM frequency to receive instructions. The system was able to cover a 50 metre radius which encompassed the whole yard.

The system has been developed to provide loading instructions and health and safety messages to remind people of company standards.
