LISLE, Ill. — IC Bus now offers customers a purpose-built school bus camera system that is designed to enhance the driver’s view around the bus.
The IC Bus Full View Camera Technology by Rosco is now available for customers to order. The camera package is customizable on CE Series and RE Series buses.
Trish Reed, vice president and general manager of IC Bus, said that the OEM’s engineers worked with their counterparts at Rosco Vision Systems to co-develop a camera solution specific to the needs of the school bus driver and the industry.
“We co-designed a unique product for IC Bus that transcends ‘off-the-shelf’ automotive solutions that do not address the blind spots of a large commercial vehicle,” said Trish Reed, vice president and general manager of IC Bus. “Instead, we focused on providing a visual safety solution that offers the driver the best views to make the job of driving a school bus easier and safer.”
According to the companies, the IC Bus Full View Camera Technology by Rosco features technology to reduce blind spots around the school bus. The equipment also provides the driver with pertinent information and danger zone views based on any driving scenario.
Customers can choose from several options for the monitor, such as having it integrated in the rearview mirror or positioned as a separate, free-standing monitor.
