Brigade Electronics has added artificial intelligence technology to its Backeye 360 camera system, which can detect the presence of humans in vehicle blind spots.

The 360-degree four camera system, which was launched in 2013, has been enhanced with AI that employs sophisticated algorithms to identify humans in real-time, alerting drivers to potential risks.

The intelligent camera system is designed to provide drivers with a complete 360-degree view of their vehicle in a single image. The system combines images from four cameras placed around the vehicle and provides a real-time view on a monitor inside the cab. The result is a ‘bird’s-eye view’ of the vehicle and surrounding area.

Peter Squire, managing director at Brigade Electronics in the UK, said: “By enhancing our Backeye 360 with AI technology, we can provide even more reassurance to operators that they are being supported with the very safest solutions on the market.

”Our innovative systems actively prevent incidents while providing support in critical situations. Brigade’s AI 360 can be effortlessly incorporated into a vehicle’s existing infrastructure for a seamless upgrade and is compatible with our full range of AI-powered devices.”

Other key benefits of Brigade’s AI 360 include high definition imaging which offers a 1080p HD 360 degree image, providing comprehensive view of the surrounding area in a single image.

The system also comes with multiple viewing options, including a 3D view which provides a higher quality and definition of the scene and allows the driver to see the relevant image when performing manoeuvres, such as reversing.

The Backeye 360 AI also features an automatic calibration process, streamlining installation and set-up and is designed to integrate seamlessly with Brigade’s range of HD monitors and digital video recorders, making it adaptable to a diverse range of vehicles and applications.

Brigade Electronics added that customer trials in the UK and Europe have drawn ”considerable interest” during the customer trials in the UK and Europe.
