Vehicle safety experts launch new video analytics ‘intelligent’ reversing camera at Hillhead 2014

Vision Techniques will be revealing their latest technology at this year’s Hillhead exhibition – a camera system that can track people and warn the driver of their presence.

Andy Kendal, sales manager, explained: ‘We’re very excited to demonstrate the new technology on our internal stand. Dangers can be seen by our MotionEye system before the driver spots them, reducing the risk of reversing accidents.’

The MotionEye system is unique to Vision Techniques as it uses video analytics; processing light, movement and position of any object seen through the 180 degree ultra-wide angled camera.

If someone was to walk in the path of a reversing truck with the MotionEye system, the video processor would highlight the person on the monitor and audibly alarm the driver. Anyone that’s on the edge of the camera frame will also be highlighted using box-in-box technology.

Vision Techniques say that one of the major benefits of the MotionEye system is that the analytics hardware can upgrade any existing reversing camera system, regardless of camera brand or type, making it a truly universal upgrade product.

MotionEye has been developed specifically for the quarrying industry to tackle issues faced with visibility when reversing, giving an improved level of safety in an often dangerous environment.

With 25 years of experience, Vision Techniques are also introducing a front-facing radar system designed for low visibility quarrying vehicles, called SensorVision:DRIVE. This new radar system adds to the existing range including SensorVision and VMS Auto Braking.

The company say that in many ways these new products are an evolution of hazard detection in the quarrying industry, limiting the risk of accidents when making difficult and often dangerous manoeuvres.
