VisionStat Plus integrates obstacle detection sensor with video system
Nov 2, 2009 8:50 AM
Mobile Awareness LLC is offering VisionStat Plus, a complete commercial-grade system to prevent backing accidents. VisionStat Plus offers an integrated version of the SenseStat obstacle detection sensor system that connects directly with the wired VisionStat camera system with no additional cabling required.
VisionStat Plus is an advanced safety system that combines two technologies to aid in preventing backing accidents. Using an obstacle detection sensor system (SenseStat), which is displayed on a backing camera video monitor (VisionStat), the driver is provided both audible and visual information when an obstacle is detected in the rear of the vehicle. These combined features allow for visual confirmation via a CCD camera along with the distance and proximity from any of four sensor zones. The driver sees the exact distance (accurate to 1") to the closest object on the monitor.
SenseStat monitors four zones simultaneously, indicating the area closest to an object or person. VisionStat is an easily installable video system available with either a 5.6" or 7" color LCD monitor that is configurable with up to four infrared night vision CCD cameras.
In the past, customers would choose between two of the most common blind spot monitoring methods, a backing camera or an obstacle detection system. While each has advantages, the cost of purchasing and installing two different systems was often prohibitive. By offering an integrated version, the combined safety effects of a VisionStat camera “Plus” the object detection of a SenseStat sensor are realized at a cost (starting at $675) often below other camera systems alone. VisionStat Plus is for all types of single-unit vehicle fleets in urban areas where backing safety is often stressed.
