Blackburn, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 25, 2012 -- Vehicle safety specialist, Vision Techniques has launched a unique 360° vehicle camera safety system, designed specifically for trucks and buses.
The new system, which adds to its existing range of proximity sensors and reversing camera systems, has been hailed by experts as the most comprehensive 'overview' any driver can have for the safe manoeuvring of their vehicle.
By providing both a clear view to drivers and warning them of potential dangers, the vehicle camera system is perfect for vehicles operating in built up areas - including high street delivery, operating in congested traffic or on bus routes when lane changes and turning is necessary.
Four cameras, mounted around the vehicle, give the driver a total overview all around the vehicle.
Overview is designed for slow speed manoeuvring in any direction, employing alarms for each side vehicle camera to warn the driver if a car, cyclist or pedestrian enters the danger blind spot on either side of the vehicle.
Andy Kelly, of Vision Techniques, said: "Like many of our other products, such as reversing camera systems and reversing sensors, Overview is guaranteed to prevent side-on collisions and allows drivers to feel safer and more aware of their surroundings. It is the perfect safety system for truck and bus manoeuvring.
"With Overview, you will have a complete view of the exterior of your vehicle and be warned of any oncoming dangers.
"Overview utilises the very latest technology to maximise safety for vehicle operators, ensuring a clear view and preventing potential accidents and incidents."
