Details: Another view of Volvo FL emergency tender 2604 parked outside Battersea ERU depot on 11th June 2020, and I draw your attention to the fact that the adjoining unit in this small industrial estate is used by 'Trams'. Sadly this is just the name of a 'Trusted IT Solutions Provider' (to quote their own website). Turning back to the main subject, I noticed there was a small grey object in the middle of the sunvisor (above the windscreen) that appears to be pointing downwards. Further inspection showed that there were similar devices at the mid-points of each side and the rear. I suspect that these are small video cameras. There was a trial a few years ago with similar cameras on some London buses. The camera feeds were composited into a single image, effectively giving the driver a bird's-eye view of whatever was close to their vehicle. Useful when manoeuvring in confined spaces.
