REI, Velvac forge partnership

Posted on February 24, 2012

Radio Engineering Industries Inc. (REI) and Velvac Inc. are joining forces to provide seamless integration between REI's BUS-WATCH Mobile Video Surveillance and Velvac's camera-based Vision Systems, ultimately improving driver and passenger safety; mitigating risk; and providing external vehicle assistance on transit, shuttle and school buses, according to both companies.

BUS-WATCH collects video and audio through strategically positioned, high resolution cameras with built in microphones. The system includes a digital video recorder, high resolution camera(s) and REI's state-of-art, user-friendly software for viewing your vehicle's location and activities.

Velvac's Vision Systems integrate advanced CMOS cameras into the external mirror housing to offer an enhanced field of view and better visual clarity in all traffic and weather conditions. It provides the driver with dedicated views of blind spots and passing lanes around the vehicle by positioning the camera closer to the optimal height and width as identified by NHTSA; and as a result, provides the driver with an intuitive visual experience that improves safety and reduces the potential for costly and dangerous accidents.
