Brigade Electronics discusses how road safety continues to be a global responsibility
Pascal Libens, Fleet Manager of Logistics Benelux Coca-Cola European Partners, said:
"In total we have fitted 70 vehicles so far and plan to fit about 30 new ones this year with Brigade's safety devices. This means 100% of our fleet will be equipped with the Backeye®360 [Brigade's 360-degree camera system], but also with ultrasonic obstacle detection and a speaking alarm. Ultrasonic detection ensures that the driver is alerted to cyclists, pedestrians or objects next to the vehicle and the speaking alarm warns pedestrians and cyclists that the vehicle is about to turn right."
"We are receiving positive feedback from various drivers, but it will be some time before we can take stock of how the system works. Drivers will have to adapt to a totally new view, and it always takes time to get used to new ways of driving. However, I am convinced that once you drive with the system, you won't want to drive without it."
