Brigade Electronics’ award-winning Backeye 360 receives an AI upgrade


Brigade Electronics has added artificial intelligence technology to its award-winning Backeye 360 vehicle safety solution.

The 360-degree four camera system, which has been a best-selling product for the business since it launched in 2013, has been enhanced using state-of-the-art AI that can identify humans in vehicle blind spots.

The intelligent camera system is designed to assist with manoeuvrability in challenging situations by providing drivers with a complete 360-degree view of their vehicle in a single image. The system combines images from four cameras placed around the vehicle and provides a real-time view on a monitor inside the cab. The result is a ‘bird’s-eye view’ of the vehicle and surrounding area.

Peter Squire, Managing Director at Brigade Electronics in the UK, said: “By enhancing our Backeye®360 with AI technology, we can provide even more reassurance to operators that they are being supported with the very safest solutions on the market. Our innovative systems actively prevent incidents while providing support in critical situations. Brigade’s AI 360 can be effortlessly incorporated into a vehicle’s existing infrastructure for a seamless upgrade and is compatible with our full range of AI-powered devices.”

The key benefits of Brigade’s AI 360 include:

  • Advanced AI Technology: employs sophisticated algorithms to identify humans in real-time, alerting drivers to potential risk.
  • High Definition Imaging: offers a 1080p HD 360° image, providing comprehensive view of the surrounding area in a single image.
  • Multiple Viewing Options: includes a 3D view which provides a higher quality and definition of the scene and allows the driver to see the relevant image when performing manoeuvres, such as reversing.
  • Easy Calibration: features an automatic calibration process, streamlining installation and set-up.
  • Broad Compatibility: designed to integrate seamlessly with Brigade’s range of HD monitors and digital video recorders, making it adaptable to a diverse range of vehicles and applications.

The Backeye 360 AI has been met with enthusiasm from industry professionals, drawing considerable interest during the customer trials in the UK and Europe. Brigade’s forward-thinking approach to safety continues to establish industry standards, with the Backeye 360 AI marking a significant innovation in the UK and European markets.
