Wireless backup camera

Posted: October 30, 2017

PeopleNet is using some advanced technology to offer a better view of the space behind you – with a wireless trailer backup camera that automatically pairs with any PeopleNet Video Intelligence receiver in the cab.

The camera is powered by the trailer’s Antilock Braking System, so there is no battery to charge, and it uses a transmitter to deliver the feed.

Combined with forward- and side-facing cameras, Video Intelligence now gives fleets access to 360 degrees of video data. The company’s Video Intelligence Solution triggers camera recordings based on the data generated through Onboard Event Recording.

It’s about more than support when backing. It can also capture images when a collision occurs. And according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, nearly 17% of fatal truck-car collisions in 2015 were caused by passenger vehicles rear-ending large trucks. Another 25 fatal truck-related collisions were caused by improperly starting or backing.
