Reverse-view cameras assist ABI drivers with reversing safely

HD video,  four cameras, and night vision

Steering a large vehicle backwards takes skill, particularly in spaces that do not leave much room for movement. Serco, in co-operation with its telematics partner, Ikhaya Automation, has resolved this challenge by fitting reverse-view camera systems to 17 Amalgamated Beverage Industries (ABI) trucks and trailers.

The system has HD quality video, can accommodate up to four cameras, has night vision, and the rear-mounted camera

The reverse-view cameras not only assist drivers during reversing, but they also improve safety for the public and reduce damage during docking. In addition, the camera system saves time by making maneuvering easier.

According to Serco, the camera system and its development are in line with their drive to offer transporters leading-edge technology.

The system has HD quality video, can accommodate up to four  reverse-view cameras, has night vision, and the rear-mounted camera comes with a protective cover to prevent damage. The cameras, suitable for rigid vehicles, as well as horse- and-trailer combinations, also help deter theft, as the optional video recording system assists in assessing accountability for losses/damages.

The use of reverse-view cameras as reverse aids is becoming common in Europe, where trucks are often fitted with cameras at the rear linked to an in-cab LCD screen providing improved visibility while reversing.
