Monitoring the rear and sides of the truck – Reversing, manoeuvring or making a right-hand turn can create potentially dangerous situations. In spite of all available mirrors, the truck operator does not have the necessary view into all dangerous zones.
Camera monitoring systems support the driver and indicate obstacles and persons and make the approach to loading and unloading areas easier. Consequently, it effectively prevents accidents and saves costs through simple and fast operating procedures.
Whether on the roads or on the loading ramp – camera systems on semi-trailer trucks with boot sections have up to three cameras. On the tractor unit, there is a camera monitoring the draw bar and the trailer. There is a third camera on the front or the side to provide additional safety around corners. This works in conjunction with the right wing mirror and shows the blind spot.
Camera systems are a statutory requirement for over-length HGV combinations A camera on the rear of the vehicle or trailer records traffic and defuses critical situations, for example on building sites, at mines or during shunting. With a wide viewing angle of up to 120 degrees, the sturdy cameras record the entire space behind the HGV and the outer edges of the tailgate. The systems, including top quality connectors and cables, are tailored exactly to the relevant vehicle combinations.
For rear loaders, the back area is the critical area. A camera (view angle >90°) fitted to the outrigger allows the driver to view the entire working area. The images are shown either on the Motec display or via a factory-fitted terminal. Option for right-hand drive vehicles: the driver can see approaching traffic via a camera on the left hand side. Up to four cameras are used on side loaders (lifter, rear space, waste press and side). All vehicle variants can be covered using a single camera type and view angle.
With a camera on the rear, the driver can monitor the traffic and check the gritter plate and grit patterns. A built-in cleaning system cleans the lens at the touch of a button. Fixed partitions and the quick-change mount allow the camera to be converted in just a few simple steps so it can be used as a reversing camera for all-year-round use. Additional cameras can be added to the system, for plough monitoring, for example.
