Brigade Electronics INC – a provider of vehicles safety systems – has launched Brigade Van, a new product range featuring a variety of vehicle safety solutions that are specifically designed for the van market.

According to the company, as the number of vans on the road in the US continues to rise, transport managers and drivers face an increasing number of challenges. These include risk of collisions due to vehicle blind spots, theft and criminal activity, driver error, insurance ‘crash for cash’ scams and more stringent legislation.

Brigade Van was developed to address the challenges faced by van operators and provide a range of high-quality vehicle safety solutions that will reduce the risk of collisions, cut insurance premiums, encourage driver best practice and serve as a deterrent against theft, vandalism and insurance scams.

“Vehicle safety equipment, such as back up alarms, sensors and cameras, have proved to prevent collisions and protect vulnerable road users. However, many believe that this equipment only applies to larger vehicles, such as trucks and construction equipment. Brigade is hoping to change that with the introduction of Brigade Van,” said Corey Heniser, CEO of Brigade Electronics INC.

The product portfolio includes a camera monitor system featuring forward-facing and rear-facing cameras that provide real-time images of objects and people in the vehicle’s front and rear blind spots. These images are fed back to the driver via a ‘mirror monitor’ which clips onto the van’s existing rear-view mirror, making it quick and easy to install.

The camera monitor system can be integrated with Brigade Van’s MDR Digital Video Recorder and dash cams. This vehicle CCTV system, which records and saves footage, provides invaluable and irrefutable evidence in the event of an incident and acts as a deterrent against thieves and crash-for-cash insurance scammers – helping to cut insurance premiums and provide peace of mind for drivers.

For electric and hybrid vehicles, the absence of a combustion engine means that when it travels at speeds below 12.5mph it is almost silent. As of 2021, every electric and hybrid vehicle on the road has to be retrofitted with devices that can be heard at low speeds. Brigade’s QVS Quiet Vehicle Sounder integrates its patented bbs-tek technology that creates a highly directional and instantly locatable sound to warn vulnerable road users of approaching silent electric and hybrid vehicles.
