Global leader in vehicle safety Brigade Electronics has launched its latest 360º camera monitor system – the Backeye®360 BN360-200 – incorporating a range of new and unique features to eliminate blind spots and improve safety.
Designed to assist with low speed maneuvering the technology provides drivers with a comprehensive 360º bird’s-eye view of the area surrounding the vehicle via an in-cab monitor display.
Research has shown 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. The Backeye®360 BN360-200 addresses the issue by eliminating blind spots and creating maximum visibility around the vehicle at all times, with the driver only needing to view one monitor.
The Backeye®360 BN360-200 retains all the features of its predecessor (BN360-000), along with the new and unique benefit of customizable software, which can be intuitively set up using the monitor and accompanying IR remote control by just a single engineer.
19 different on-screen views are available to suit almost all applications and environments, these include: portrait and landscape options, full 360º vehicle modes and split screen modes with 360º view.
Customizable triggers allow for a complete hands-off experience, ensuring the driver is focused on maneuvering the vehicle and reacting to possible hazards.
