Hino lights get cam­eras

New Zealand Truck & Driver - - News -

IN A NEW SAFETY INI­TIA­TIVE, Hino New Zealand is in­tro­duc­ing re­vers­ing cam­eras as stan­dard in its 300 Se­ries light­duty trucks.

e cam­eras dis­play a live video and sound feed to the trucks’ touch-screen multimedia unit, en­abling driv­ers to re­verse with con dence and safety, re­duc­ing the risk of in­jury and in­creas­ing work­place safety.

“Safety is key for all our ve­hi­cles, and we want to lead the mar­ket in o er­ing the high­est stan­dards to our Hino cus­tomers,” says Hino gen­eral man­ager Michael Doeg.

“Glob­ally we’re see­ing a move to­wards rear-view cam­eras – in the USA they will be manda­tory in all new pas­sen­ger ve­hi­cles by 2018, to avoid re­vers­ing ac­ci­dents.

“By im­ple­ment­ing this stan­dard in our lighter-duty trucks, which are of­ten used in com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial en­vi­ron­ments, we’re demon­strat­ing how im­por­tant safety de­vel­op­ments are in NZ com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles.”

e ADR-com­pli­ant cam­eras are wa­ter­proof and o er wide-view, high-de ni­tion qual­ity vi­sion. ey’re also in­frared night-vi­sion en­abled and have the added bene t of a builtin mi­cro­phone, so voice in­struc­tions can be given to re­vers­ing driv­ers, in­form­ing them of any haz­ards that may not be im­me­di­ately vis­i­ble.
