Portland-based Brigade Electronics is using artificial intelligence (AI) to helps drivers spot people in their blind spots.

The company has launched an AI intelligent detection camera for active blind-spot detection. It uses AI to recognise humans within a predefined detection zone and warn drivers visually or audibly before a possible collision occurs.

Compared with traditional vehicle cameras, the AI cameras have a range of improved features and offer enhanced visibility at both the front and rear of the vehicle.

“The introduction of AI cameras in the USA by Brigade Electronics is set to make a significant impact on the commercial vehicle safety landscape,” said Thierry Bourgeay, senior product manager at Brigade Electronics. “Their advanced features and capabilities make them an invaluable tool for fleet operators and drivers, ensuring that our roads are safer and more secure than ever before.”

Corey Heniser, CEO at Brigade Electronics, added: “Artificial intelligence is revolutionising safety for fleet operators and drivers and our AI intelligent detection cameras are a great example of this. Our AI cameras require no configuration software, so they are quick and easy to install, making them ideal for busy fleets across a range of industries, including transport, logistics, construction and passenger vehicles like buses and coaches.”

The cameras produce high-definition images. They recognise people in a vehicle’s front and rear blind spots and alert drivers.

People detected are shown in a coloured box overlayed on the HD camera image on the driver’s monitor. Image processing and detected person overlay are built into the camera.

The AI cameras connect directly to Brigade’s monitors and, if required, buzzers. They include the Brigade Select range of connectors and are compatible with all Brigade HD monitors and MDR digital video recorders.
