PeopleNet launched its next-generation MirrorCam, a hood-mounted spot mirror with a built-in camera that gives drivers additional perspective into a truck’s blind spots.
The MirrorCam provides a 75-degree field of view of passing lanes and blind spots for drivers when connected to a PeopleNet display. Video captured by the MirrorCam can also be viewed by a fleet’s back office, giving visibility into onboard event recording-triggered events and providing additional context in the event of an accident.
The MirrorCam is part of PeopleNet’s Video Intelligence solution, which uses forward, side and rear-facing cameras usable to create a 360-degree view around the cab and trailer of the truck. In addition to its wide field of view, MirrorCam has an aerodynamic design that shields the camera from direct sunlight or vehicle headlights and reduces dirt or contaminant deposits on the mirror glass.
“The debut of the second generation MirrorCam represents the continued evolution of our vision to improve fleet safety with the Video Intelligence platform,” said Jim Angel, Vice President, Video Intelligence Solutions for PeopleNet. “We are continually looking for ways to improve and enhance our technology to give customers the tools they need to protect themselves in the event of an accident and potentially avoid one in the first place.”
