Eliminating blind spots and making manoeuvering safer are the key messages behind Trailer Vision’s stand at this year’s CV Show.
The company will be using the even to show its 360 Omni-Van system, based on the 360-degree camera systems already popular with tipper and refuse operators, as well as some large fleets.
The company claims that 360 degree cameras provide the ultimate solution, eliminating all vehicle blind-spots and presenting the driver with an easy to interpret one-view display, avoiding the information overload of quad-view displays.
Previously, the cost of such systems has been a limiting factor, especially for lower value vehicles, including delivery vehicles and vans.
As delivery vehicles make up a significant part of the UK CV market and interact continually with the public, Trailer Vision identified a need for a new, less expensive option. The system would require competitive pricing, easy installation and DVR recording options, primarily for incident, accident and insurance evidence.
The new 360 Omni-Van camera is designed specifically for van applications, with a 12v DC supply, and benefits from the same technology as its proven and highly successful big brother, the LGV-specific Omni-Vue.
The system provides drivers with an intuitive display and comprises four small, discrete cameras and a mirror mounted monitor option. The quick-to-install system starts from less than £600.
