Camera-based system puts an end to blind spots

December 14, 2015 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Blind spots in the surroundings of trucks are responsible for many severe collisions between trucks and bicycles or pedestrians in road traffic. The CornerEye camera-based monitoring system from Orlaco promises to make an end to numerous hazardous constellations.

The CornerEye system unites a high-resolution monitor with a field of view covering 270 degrees. It meets the requirements of vision classes V and VI and makes truck manufacturers eligible for exemption from the pavement and front view mirror requirement, in accordance with mirror directive R46. The camera is waterproof according to IP69K, highly vibration resistant and achieves a high sensitivity under low light conditions.

Designed for trucks and heavy machines, the CornerEye system satisfies quality standards ISO/TS 16949:2009 and ISO 9001:2008. It is also approved under the R10 criteria. The vendor claims that the system does not interfere with driver concentration and cannot be affected by electromagnetic fields.
