Brigade Electronics will be returning to Freight in the City Expo this year with its demonstration vehicle showcasing a full suite of working products.
On board the vehicle will be a 3G/Wi-Fi capable mobile digital recorder; the Backeye 360 camera monitor system; sidescan ultrasonic detection systems; White Sound warning alarms and radar detection sensors.
Brigade’s Backeye 360 camera monitor system assists low speed maneuverability and provides the driver with a real-time surround view of the vehicle in a single image, effectively eliminating blind spots.
The live images produced by four ultra-wide-angle cameras, mounted on each side of the vehicle, are simultaneously sent to an electronic control unit (ECU) where they are instantly processed, combined, blended and stitched, according to Brigade.
When combined with the firm’s mobile digital recording device, which has the ability to capture 1164 hours of footage from up to eight cameras at any one time, the systems together can provide evidence in the case of false claims, incidents or vandalism.
Footage can also be used to support the driver, who is often the subject of increased scrutiny.
Brigade will also be showcasing its sidescan ultrasonic obstacle detection systems and real-speech side turn warning alarms, which are required to meet FORS and CLOCS specification standards.
In addition, a range of bbs-tek White Sound reversing alarms that are approved by the Noise Abatement Society and Quiet Mark for night time deliveries, will be on display on the stand.
- Freight in the City takes place on 7 November at London’s Alexandra Palace. It is free to attend and features an exciting exhibition of urban logistics vehicles, technology and services, as well as a complementary full-day seminar programme.
