Truck Rear View Cameras

Large vehicles are especially vulnerable to back over accidents that often result in injury or death.  Particularly in work environments where large vehicles are used, accidents often occur when a work vehicle is being backed up.  Several companies are taking advantage of rear view camera systems to enhance the safety in this type of environment.  Check out the article below from prnewswire.com that describes how companies are taking advantage of this technology.

Shawn O’Connell of Collision Avoidance Systems Joins Rear View Safety as a… — NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

“NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Shawn O’Connell of Collision Avoidance Systems Joins Rear View Safety as a Director of Sales.” http://prnewswire.com/news-releases/shawn-oconnell-of-collision-avoidance-systems-joins-rear-view-safety-as-a-director-of-sales-281907491.html

 

Now that we have all of these great accident avoidance technologies at our disposal, all companies should be looking at how these technologies can be implemented within their fleets to reduce their cost of accidents.”

The aforementioned statement was one of the many comments that Shawn O’Connell gave during an interview about his plans with Rear View Safety. Mr. O’Connell’s goal is to provide commercial vehicle drivers with the extra set of eyes that they need while they are operating large vehicles. He feels that the Rear View Safety technology can not only prevent accidents, but also document occurrences for companies so that they know the true details of a particular incident.

The advanced technology that Rear View Safety offers includes vehicle backup cameras, commercial backup camera system, collision avoidance systems and much more. Backup cameras help drivers to view their blind spots before they back up their trucks and trailers. Mr. O’Connell used an example from a recent study to explain the vulnerability of large vehicles. He stated that 28 children could fit within the blind spot of an ordinary SUV. He urged fleet owners to consider the astronomical number of children that could fit in the blind spot of a 28-foot box truck. Backup camera systems can save many people’s lives. Additionally, they can prevent personal injury suits and wrongful death litigation. Therefore, a company’s investment in safety technology is well worth saving its integrity.

As this article points out, even a typical SUV has a blind spot that several children could fit into. Just imagine how big the blind spot is for a large dump truck or vehicles that can be found around a construction site. It is encouraging to see that so many different types of business enterprises are moving to rear view camera systems to enhance safety in work environments where large vehicles are employed.

It is becoming more and more common to see rear view cameras on vehicles of all kinds on the road today.  The US government has mandated that all new vehicles must have them installed by 2018, but until then older cars are going to depend upon the aftermarket to equip their vehicles with these cameras.  Classification and function of a rear view camera are important issues to clearly understand when making a purchase of one of these systems.  The article below can assist you in the decision making process.

“Function of Car Rear view Camera

The automotive rear view camera reflects the rear part of the car, the side and the bottom of the case, so that motorists can indirectly see these locations, it plays the role of the “second eye” to expand the scope of the driver’s field of vision. Automotive rear view systems are important safety pieces, and are quite particular about its camera, shape and manipulate. The quality and installation of car rear view system has a corresponding industry standard, and when one is doing this, one cannot as one pleases. The general assembly outside rear view camera and inside rear view system is cars and other light passenger cars, large commercial vehicles (buses and trucks), generally the assembly rear view cameras are outside mirrors, under the rear-view mirror and inside rear view camera.

Classification of Car Rear View Cameras

According to the installation position, the car rear view camera can be divided into rear view camera, lower outside camera, back rear view camera and inside rear view camera. If divided by the use, the exterior rear view camera reflects the car backside, and the lower rear-view mirror reflects the car before the bottom, inside rear-view camera reflects the rear of the car and in-car. The purpose is not the same as the mirror structure will be different. Door rear view in general, there are two types, one is a plane mirror, by definition flat mirror is jargon is the radius of surface curvature R infinity”, which with the normal household with a camera obtained with the visual image of the same size, this plane mirror is used to do the inside rear view mirror. the other is a convex mirror, a spherical mirror-like, having a radius of curvature of the different size, its image is smaller than the visual field range is large, as a camera “wide angle” role, this convex camera is used to do the outside camera and under the rear-view camera.”

There will be profits galore for some producers of rear view camera systems.  The new law that mandates new cars to be equipped with these cameras will increase demand and therefore profits for companies like Magna International Inc.  The article below from automotive news illustrates this point.

Backup camera mandate boosts suppliers

 

""David Sedgwick Automotive News April 5, 2014 – 8:09 am ET DETROIT — The biggest beneficiary of the new federal mandate for rear view cameras is likely to be Magna International Inc., which claims 40 percent of the North American market for the equipment. Other suppliers such as Delphi Automotive, Gentex Corp., Panasonic Corp. and Valeo S.A. also are poised to profit. Suppliers also see the mandate driving more business on the horizon. The cameras are another step toward sophisticated safety aids, which the suppliers would produce, that give drivers a 360-degree view around their vehicles.
