Latest technology on display

The Go West team took in the latest bus industry technology at the Australasia Bus and Coach Expo 2017 in the Gold Coast recently.

General Manager David Haoust and Maintenance Manager Darren Babich visited more than 100 exhibits from bus industry manufacturers from across Australia and inspected the latest models of coaches and emerging technologies.

“Attending these conferences and seeing the latest products allows Go West to keep at the forefront of ground breaking safety and industry technologies,” David said.

New safety technologies included fatigue management cameras which observe drivers and measure fatigue, lane departure warning systems that make audible alarms and vibrate drivers seats to alert them if they are drifting and forward facing cameras which observe cars and pedestrians and assist in braking and reaction times for drivers and collision events.

“Telematics, the vehicle tracking and monitoring system was highlighted as being a system which will play a greater role in fleet management, which Go West invested in about eight years ago.”
