Brigade Electronics, a U.K.-based company specializing in vehicle reversing safety, all-round visibility and collision avoidance, has set up a new subsidiary in Canada to meet growing demand for vehicle safety systems. Brigade Electronics (Canada) Ltd., with warehousing in Ontario, will develop on-site application and engineering support for customers across Canada.

“Brigade is in a unique position offering a comprehensive range of maneuvering safety solutions,” said Henry Morgan, director and CEO. “We have patented reversing alarms that make the source of danger more easily locatable than equivalent tonal alarms; new radar obstacle detection to alert the driver; and Backeye 360 Systems that eliminate blind spots by giving a ‘bird’s-eye view’ all around the machine in a single image. Our mobile digital recorders can help driver training and protect drivers and companies from false insurance claims.”

Brigade said it recommends a three-pronged approach to safety: driver visibility aids such as cameras to eliminate blind spots; driver alerts triggered by external sensors that identify potential collisions; and warnings for vulnerable people outside the vehicle such as reversing alarms.
