Camera Monitoring Systems (Backeye) and (360)
Camera systems for heavy duty trucks and heavy equipment have brought driver vision into the twenty first century offering wider angles of view and multiple images on a single monitor. They can help eliminate blind spots to prevent costly vehicle damage and ultimately save lives.
Vehicle blind spots are a huge contributory factor in collisions in all industries. The substantial height and length of many vehicles and machines greatly limit driver visibility. Operator positions, bodywork panels, absent rear windows and bulkheads all create further restrictions.
Camera systems have been out on the market for some time however it has only been recently that this has been adopted as a best practice by many corporations and companies that are in the commercial transport and construction industry.
Studies completed by the NHTSA show that cameras can help lower vehicle incidents by 50%! Taken from (national highway traffic safety administration- NHTSA)
Camera systems by Brigade are not your everyday automotive camera. We sell high grade components to ensure that when you need it most it’s there. Many systems do not have shielded cables, water tight connections and mounts that will allow the pounding of day to day use in the commercial transport and equipment industry.
We offer a wide range of cameras and monitors to fit every customer’s needs. We also have the ability to work with customer to custom tailor any unit or system to meet their specific needs. We don’t only sell Brigade equipment but use it ourselves on our own vehicles in everyday applications.
Brigades’ new Backeye 360 system is on the cutting edge of technology and is helping drastically reduce the risk of accidents in large commercial and industrial vehicles. With 4 cameras attached to the front and sides of the vehicle or equipment the images are then blended together to give the driver a bird’s eye view of his surrounding on one screen.
