With CornerEye amply covered the prescribed view classes V and VI
CornerEye displays the area to the front and side of a truck. A single camera amply covers mirror classes V and VI, which must be visible to the driver at all times according to regulation R46 on the installation of mirrors.
The camera's high sensitivity to light guarantees an optimum image in the dark, and the special coating on the lens ensures a high-quality image even in poor weather conditions. With these features, CornerEye allows you to constantly keep an eye on cyclists and pedestrians at roundabouts, for example, and allows you to easily see around corners at intersections.
Research: One in Two People Don't Know Where the Blind Spot Is
Research has shown that most accidents occur at the front right-hand side of the cab. Although trucks are fitted with a front mirror and a close-proximity mirror, which cover the area in front of and to the right of the cab respectively, there are still blind spots in this area. However, CornerEye can provide you with a simple means of viewing these blind spots in real time. This unique camera system replaces the front mirror and close-proximity mirror and offers an excellent view of the areas they cover and beyond with a single glance, increasing the safety of both drivers and cyclists.
Suitable for Every Type of Truck
CornerEye is suitable for almost all types of trucks where the cab is located above the engine. Universal brackets are available for the camera and monitor and can be fitted to virtually all relevant models. The type and height of the truck determine the location of the camera. To ensure that CornerEye is installed correctly, you can rely on the service provided by Stoneridge-Orlaco and its partners.
CornerEye meets the strict automotive requirements followed by Orlaco. All components have been produced according to the ISO/TS 16949 certification standard, are in line with CE marking and have been approved in accordance with the R10 EMC criteria.
Plug and Play: CornerEye is Easy to Install
CornerEye is made up of an HD camera, GMSL cable, and HD monitor. The camera is installed on the top corner of the passenger side of the cab. The cable is fed through the bodywork to the monitor in the cab. The monitor is fitted on a bracket and is positioned above the window on the passenger side or on the passenger-side A pillar of the dashboard. This depends on the type of truck and the applicable conditions for approval. Since CornerEye is quick and easy to install, the entire system can be fitted in just two hours.
