Rosco, Inc. to Showcase MOR-Vision Backup Camera Systems at the 2013 National Association of Pupil Transportation in Grand Rapids, Michigan
Queens, NY – October 21, 2013 – Rosco, Inc., an automotive vision safety leader in backup camera systems and interior/exterior rearview mirrors will showcase its newest school bus safety innovation at the 2013 National Association of Pupil Transportation (NAPT) Annual Summit in Grand Rapids, Michigan from October 22nd to the 23rd. The MOR-Vision mirror and monitor combination backup mirror/monitor system is an advanced driver aid for school buses that includes a camera mounted on the back of the bus sending images to a monitor installed within the interior rearview mirror of the bus.
“The MOR-Vision Backup Camera System is perfect for large school buses backing into tight spots or moving in reverse when visibility is limited. It also has the capacity for additional interior and side cameras – it’s like giving the driver extra eyes,” said Peter Plate, Rosco’s Director of Sales & Marketing.
With safety a priority in student transportation, backing up large, yellow school buses creates a risky and dangerous situation. The combination of limited visibility and the need to maneuver around students, pedestrians and other vehicles has the potential for disaster. When considering school bus safety issues, knowing how to use technology to limit safety risks during backup procedures is important.
The large MOR-Vision rearview mirror/monitor comes in three different sizes 6” X 16”, 6” X 30” and 10” x 30”. The installation is the same as any other large bus interior rearview mirror. The backup cameras are also installed like any other system, and the camera harness is simply connected to the monitor. In the MOR-Vision STSK6630 rearview camera system, a 7-inch LCD monitor is automatically displayed on the interior rearview mirror when the vehicle shifts into reverse allowing the driver to see behind the bus. Once the driver shifts into other modes of bus operation, a normal mirror view reappears. Large buses equipped with the MOR-Vision™ backup camera systems have options for multiple cameras including side cameras and interior cameras. An automatic monitor view changes based on the operational conditions of the bus or preference of the driver.
In addition to the MOR-Vision backup camera system, Rosco will also be displaying the Dual-Vision™ XC automotive event recorder with new third camera option and full line of rearview and crossview mirrors. Rosco is a leader in the rear view camera and mirror industry and offers a wide selection of products designed to improve the safety for drivers, passengers and pedestrians.
