Commercial Vehicle / Hgv Camera Systems
Hgv Camera Systems
Here is the commercial vehicle/heavy-duty vehicle camera system configuration provided by YUWEI for a UK fleet customer, as shown in the figure, equipped with Mobile DVR, which is used to connect various cameras and other functional devices. It supports 6 channels of analog video input and can support multiple cameras. This solution includes blind spot cameras, reversing cameras, ADAS auxiliary cameras, HOD cameras, DSM cameras, as well as displays and sound and light alarms installed on the customer's truck. YUWEI's camera systems are all certified by UKCA in the UK, and purchases are welcome for those in need.
More than 25% of British drivers now have dashcams, showing a remarkable growth compared to ten years ago. More and more cars are equipped with front and side cameras from the factory. This makes sense because road safety is important to all of us. Lowering insurance costs, quickly resolving accidents, and defending against fraudulent claims are equally important.
Why do commercial fleets choose basic dashcams instead of multi-camera systems? There are several reasons that can explain this phenomenon. Firstly, most collisions occur on the side or rear rather than the front. Therefore, multi-camera systems can provide more video evidence, helping to save costs and question fraudulent claims. Secondly, cameras connected to monitors and automatic warning systems can prevent accidents, avoiding the high cost of dealing with accident consequences. Additionally, cameras can also deter fraud and theft, which is especially important for commercial businesses.
Although front cameras can provide feedback related to driver behavior, they are not sufficient when it comes to issues such as side and rear collisions. One reason why commercial fleets do not choose multi-camera systems is that they mistakenly believe these systems are complex, requiring the connection of hardware from different manufacturers and the interpretation of all the data. However, systems like YUWEI can provide all the necessary cameras and connect them to a single scalable platform, making data management simple.
Ultimately, the choice of whether to adopt a multi-camera system depends on the importance of the vehicles and drivers to the business, as well as the tolerable frequency of accidents, fraudulent claims, and theft. However, considering that many private drivers are already benefiting from multi-camera systems, it is worth considering whether commercial fleets should follow suit.
