Brigade Electronics brings HGV safety into focus at Freight in the City Birmingham

Brigade Electronics will be heading to the Freight in the City Spring Summit in Birmingham next month to help hauliers reduce the risk of road collisions.

The group will be exhibiting its demonstration vehicle fitted with products to reduce the risk of collision, detect vulnerable road users and in addition improve insurance premiums.

In particular, the focus will fall on its Backeye360 next-generation camera monitor system.

“It takes four camera views and displays them as one seamless image on the monitor. This eliminates the need for split screen images and reduces driver distraction,” a spokeswoman said.

Also on display will be Brigade’s digital recording system, MDR, which it states is ideal for providing evidence in the event of a collision or crash-for-cash scam.

“MDR is good practice for operators who want a process to record and review incidents, traffic collisions and reported near-misses as required in Fors and Clocs specifications,” the spokeswoman added.

Brigade has also launched a new finance scheme to help operators struggling with the cost of vehicle safety devices required for site specifications and tenders.

The lease scheme offers customers the opportunity to spread the cost of equipment in monthly payments across three to five-year plans. They can also add extended parts and labour warranty and fitting costs in the overall price.

This is supported by Brigade Service Partners, which offer nationwide fitting and support for anyone that has bought the Brigade brand.
