One person sat trucks

One-person use of remote radio-linked vehicles like uPod and COFDM trucks has been agreed by the union in English Regions.

Locked-off shots and use of the on-board camera in safe office situations have been approved, but all other operations will be serviced by at least two staff.

The deal essentially agrees two situations only in which any such vehicle can be operated by a single person in a live transmission.
