At Brigade we are always striving to provide new and improved technology and commercial vehicle safety systems that make a difference to road users and enhance safety for everyone.
Therefore, we are delighted to announce the launch of a new artificially intelligent commercial vehicle safety system – CAREYE® Safety Angle Turning Assistant – across our UK, French, Polish and Dutch markets.
Deaths and serious injuries continue to be an issue for vulnerable road users, including pedestrians and cyclists, across the UK and Europe. In fact, 141 cyclists were killed in the UK due to road traffic collisions in 2020 with a further 229, 175, and 168 killed in The Netherlands, France, and Poland respectively.
One in three of these fatalities could have been prevented with a side guard assistant, such as CAREYE®. This makes such technology crucial in enhancing safety for every road user and helping to save lives.
CAREYE® Safety Angle Turning Assistant from EYYES GmbH has been offered by Brigade GmbH in Germany for more than a year and was trialed by its long-standing partner, Geier & Söhne Transportgesellschaft GmbH in the country. Geier & Söhne Transportgesellschaft GmbH fitted the device, which uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology to detect pedestrians, cyclists, and objects, to one of its Mercedes Actros vehicles and reported a huge satisfaction with the product.
The system’s AI is set up to accurately evaluate the images from cameras fitted to the vehicle and is able to calculate the future course of motion of nearby people or objects. Based on this data, the system reliably and accurately warns the driver in real-time of a possible collision before it occurs.
Warnings are issued either actively with an audible and visual red alert if a person or object is at risk of being hit, or passively with a visual yellow alert if, for example, a person or object is moving away from the danger zone – dramatically reducing false alerts.
CAREYE® has also been rated as a clear winner in the ADAC performance tests demonstrating its optimum performance and outranking other similar vehicle safety devices on the market. ADAC cited CAREYE®’s reliability for reducing false alerts significantly, the visual feedback for drivers being clear and easy to understand, and its quick reaction times for detecting people and objects as reasons for its top place position.
The accuracy of CAREYE®’s AI makes false alerts extremely rare and provides the driver with absolute peace of mind that they can manoeuvre their vehicle with the utmost safety. The system is able to differentiate between cars, trucks, people, bicycles, and static objects, such as trees or bollards. Movement and the expected direction are then calculated, making the system extremely reliable.
The full features and benefits of CAREYE® Safety Angle Turning Assistant can be viewed on the CAREYE® product page.
