Brigade Electronics showcases Backeye®360


Brigade Electronics showcased its Backeye®360, intelligent four-camera system, which is designed to eliminate blind spots and assist low speed manoeuvrability by providing the driver with a complete 360 degree view of their vehicle in a single image at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham this week.
All vehicles have blind spots – areas around the vehicle that are obscured to the driver by bodywork or machinery.
When manoeuvring, these blind spots present a significant danger to anything or anyone in the vehicle’s path and inhibit the driver’s ability to operate the vehicle safely.
Mirrors and single-view cameras help to see blind spots, but even with this extra assistance, the driver may still not see everything in the vehicle’s path. After all, they can only be watching the road, or looking in one monitor or mirror at any given time.
Research shows that in the time it takes to scan four mirrors, assess, and then react to hazards, even at speeds as low as 5kph a vehicle could travel as far as 10 metres.
Brigade Electronics presented its Backeye®360, intelligent four-camera system, which overcomes this problem by presenting a view of the view in a single image at the CV Show.
