Brigade Electronics to showcase safety products at Bauma Africa
Manoeuvring safety will take centre stage at Bauma Africa this September as Brigade Electronics showcase a diverse range of their most durable radar and camera systems.
As well as showing their signature broadband sound alarm to the African mining, construction and haulage markets, they will also be launching their Smarteye 360 degree camera system to the international market.
Making its debut in the show’s UK Pavilion, Smarteye is the first in a new generation of intelligent vehicle safety solutions. It is a camera system that eradicates blind spots and reduces collisions and driver information overload thanks to a single bird’s-eye view of the entire vehicle and its immediate surroundings.
Comprising four cameras placed around the vehicle, Smarteye technology works by ‘stitching’ each image together to provide a complete and accurate all-round view, as if from above. Powered by software from ASL Technology, specialist software developers of video image processing and other products, each camera’s ultra-wide-angle lens renders a realistic, light-balanced video image displayed in real time on a high-definition cab monitor with programmable options to highlight areas of greatest risk.
Visitors to the Brigade stand will be able to see the Smarteye system in action as part of a broader product showcase, which comprises: the Backeye range of heavy-duty cameras and monitors; new-to-market digital wireless system; and a selection of Backsense radar products - Xtreme, WorkZone and WorkSight. Brigade’s bbs-tek white sound reversing alarm will also be on display.
Representatives from Brigade’s UK team and the company’s network of South African dealers, including Dynalift, John Radcliffe and Le Bros, will be on the stand for the show’s duration (18-21 September).
