Brigade Electronics Is A Main Sponsor Of FTA Transport Manager Conference 2018
FTA Ireland’s Transport Manager Conference will be held at the Johnstown House Hotel, County Meath in only five days time and news has come out of a very special main sponsor, Brigade Electronics.
Leading global supplier of vehicle safety devices, Brigade Electronics has been pioneering the cause of vehicle safety since 1976, when they introduced the very first reversing alarm to Europe. Already working closely with FTA in the UK, Brigade’s new alliance with FTA Ireland promises to see a cohesion of industry knowledge, expertise and experience.
Headquartered in Kent, Brigade Electronics continue to lead the way, pioneering many products and developing and patenting new technology. Its comprehensive range of products reduce the risk of collision and maximise efficiency, assisting the driver whilst also protecting vulnerable road users including camera monitor systems, white sound reversing alarms, ultrasonic detection sensors, digital recorders and radar systems.
On display at the FTA event Brigade will be demonstrating its Backeye360, an intelligent camera monitor system, designed to assist low speed manoeuvrability, providing the driver with a real-time surround view of the vehicle in a single image, effectively eliminating blind spots.
The live images produced by four ultra-wide-angle cameras, mounted on each side of the vehicle, are simultaneously sent to an electronic control unit (ECU) where they are instantly processed, combined, blended and stitched. When combined with Brigade’s mobile digital recording device, which has the ability to capture 1164 hours of footage from up to eight cameras at any one time, the systems provide vital evidence in the case of false claims, incidents or vandalism whilst also supporting the driver, who is often the subject of increased scrutiny.
In addition to quality products, Brigade offers an installation service through its nationwide Business-Service-Partners (BSP’s), a network of professional auto electricians who provide fitting and repair work for Brigade’s onsite service warranties.
