Brigade Electronics has launched a new radar obstacle detection system that improves safety by providing drivers with clear warnings of people or obstructions in the way of manoeuvring mobile plant and waste vehicles.
The new Backsense® radar system is an affordable, easy-to-use safety enhancement for larger vehicles. All the models in the range divide the specified detection area into five zones and provide a visual and audible warning when objects enter the hazard area.
Marks & Spencer is trialling the latest 360° camera system from Brigade and technology partner, ASL Vision, to further improve safety on its lorry fleet.
As systems offering a surround view in a single image become more widespread on rigid trucks, M&S wants to find out if the benefits can be extended to articulated vehicles. An initial trial was set up using the Backeye®360 Elite system from Brigade Electronics with powerful software from ASL Vision at its core, and the trial is now to be extended to cover 15 vehicles.
Backeye® 360, is a sophisticated camera system that provides the driver with a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle for effortless manoeuvring.Four ultra wide-angle cameras with 187° lenses eliminate vehicle blind spots to provide a 360° view in a single image.
Intelligent software flattens the raw fisheye images and bespoke blending techniques stitch them together to provide a seamless view on the monitor.
