Rosco’s New Safe-T-Scope 360° Provides an Aerial Surround View to Eliminate Blind Zones Around Emergency Vehicles

October 17th, 2017

Rosco, a leading manufacturer in automotive vision safety, introduces the Safe-T-Scope 360™ Surround Camera System to the emergency vehicle market. The 360° camera system has been developed to reduce blind spots and increase safety in the emergency 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 vehicle using custom set triggers. The system can be triggered when the vehicle is in reverse, has sirens on, or activates turn signals. Designed for large vehicles, the Safe-T-Scope 360™ is compatible with ambulances, fire trucks, SWAT, and Command Vehicles where conditions demand the highest level of awareness from the operator. Safe-T-Scope 360™ provides peace of mind for drivers and fleet managers by reducing blind spots and increasing visibility of other vehicles, objects, and Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) including pedestrians and cyclists.

“The 360 system is a safety tool for first responders to assure safe operations of emergency vehicles," says Jim Fecile, National Sales Manager of Public Safety at Rosco Vision Systems "Facing challenges of a fast paced environment, Safe-T-Scope 360 eliminates blind zones for operators when it matters most.”

When lives are on the line, emergency vehicle safety is crucial and Rosco camera systems support rapid response times and safe arrivals at the scene. A fire truck or ambulance camera plays an invaluable role as first responders head to a crisis, maneuver through crowds, or back up vehicles.

Rosco will feature the Safe-T-Scope 360 at this year's Firehouse Expo Booth 347 in Nashville, TN. Find out why fire and EMT managers rely on Rosco with a Safe-T-Scope 360° System.
