SurroundEye — Safe Driving Support System for Trucks

Truck drivers have to be especially alert to avoid accidents. Blind spots can conceal pedestrians or cyclists from view when the vehicle is moving forward, while differences in turning radius can result in unexpected accidents at the rear of the vehicle. To avoid these various dangers, a driver must rely on his eyes, his mirrors, and the vehicleʼ s rear camera. But is it enough?

Accident caused by a difference in turning radius.

Truck drivers are professionals. They know how to drive safely. And they know they need a better safe driving support system to help them avoid the kind of serious accidents that can result when pedestrians and cyclists are hidden from view by blind spots on the sides of the vehicle. 

A safe driving support system ideal for trucks, Clarionʼs SurroundEye synthesizes images from multiple on-vehicle cameras and displays them on the monitor, providing total coverage, including blind spots.
