Rosco’s New Safe-T-Scope 360° Provides a 360° Surround View to Eliminate Blind Zones Around the Vehicle

April 13th, 2017

Queens, NY – Rosco, a leading manufacturer in automotive vision safety, introduces the Safe-T-Scope360™ Surround Camera System to the commercial vehicle market. The 360° camera system has been developed to reduce blind spots and increase safety in the commercial vehicle driving environment. With the proven reliability of Rosco’s Safe-T-Scope® camera series, the new Surround View System offers 360° of coverage utilizing images from 4 cameras installed on the vehicle. Each camera has a 185° field of view that provides optimal coverage and ensures safety with multiple viewing options.

Utilizing a standard LCD backup monitor or a Rosco MOR-Vision™ mirror/monitor, the 360 system provides various views of the bus using custom set triggers. The system can be triggered when the vehicle is in reverse, has an open door, or activates the turn signals. Designed for large vehicles, the Safe-T-Scope360™ is compatible with school buses, ambulances, fire trucks, and other commercial vehicles where conditions demand the highest level of awareness from the operator. Safe-T-Scope360™ provides peace of mind for drivers and fleet managers by reducing collisions with other vehicles, objects, and Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) including pedestrians and cyclists.

In states where laws require systems to detect the presence of students in front or behind a bus, the Safe-T-Scope360™ exceeds the established guidelines. New Jersey’s latest legislation, Abigail’s Law, named after 2-year-old Abigail Kuberiet, who was fatally struck while crossing in front of a bus in 2003, lays the foundation for the using the latest technology to provide safety in the school bus industry.
