Brigade awarded EC compliance for camera monitor systems22 November 2016

Brigade Electronics has announced that it has achieved R46 compliance for its camera monitor systems, including the Backeye 360 Select.

The systems can be used in place of conventional mirrors on HGVs for Class V (blind spot area directly beside and below the passenger door) and Class VI (blind spot immediately in front of the vehicle) areas.

Mirrors on HGVs can be bulky, dangerous to pedestrians when the vehicle is moving, easily broken and expensive to replace. Camera monitors systems are an alternative, but must be approved to R46 (UN ECE Regulation No 46).

Brigade’s Backeye 360 system gives the driver with an all-round view of the vehicle in a single image on the in-cab monitor. The system simultaneously blends and stitches the live images from four ultra-wide cameras together to produce a single bird’s-eye-view image, eliminating blind spots.
