The CAREYE® SAFETY ANGLEBlind Spot Information System (BSIS)
Artificial intelligence makes it possible for the CAREYE® SAFETY ANGLE turn assistant to reliably detect pedestrians, cyclists or other objects. In dangerous situations, it warns the driver with acoustic and visual signals to avoid a possible collision. Artificial intelligence (AI) evaluates the images from the camera sensors in real time and calculates their future movement. Based on this data, the system warns the driver of a possible collision. The camera sensors monitor the right side area of the vehicle from the front of the vehicle as required by the UNECE R151 on Blind Spot Assist. The system is activated either when the vehicle is driving straight ahead and the right turn signal is active, or when the vehicle is cornering slowly without the turn signal.
- General operating licence from the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA) and thus eligible for funding
- For commercial vehicles, buses, special and emergency vehicles
- Minimisation of false alarms through artificial intelligence (AI)
- Development based on UN ECE R151 (Blind Spot Information System) specifications
- Possibility to expand additional assistance systems
- Simple type-independent installation
- Available for new vehicles and as a retrofit kit
- Activation when driving straight ahead when the right-hand indicator is activated or when cornering when the right-hand indicator is activated or without activated indicators
- Also available for the left side of the vehicle
Intelligent and precise components ensure safe turning
The heated Camera Wing with two integrated cameras captures the area next to your own truck.
In the TIC Box, the camera signals are acquired and processed accordingly.
An optical and acoustic signal transmitter shows the status and reports actual dangers.
An optional 10.1″ monitor shows the area next to your own truck to the rear.

- Objects are detected and classified. This allows to distinguish between cars, trucks, people, bicycles,… and static objects (tree, bollard,…).
- Expected direction of movement of the detected objects is calculated (trajectory). If an object is in the danger zone but moves away from it, only a hint (yellow light signal) is given to the driver.
- The driver only receives a warning (red light and acoustic signal) if there is a risk of collision. For this purpose, among other things, the direction of movement of the own vehicle as well as the calculated probable direction of movement of the object is used. If both vectors overlap, a warning is issued.
Reversing assistance system
The CarEye® reversing assistance system is an additional aid for the driver when reversing commercial vehicles up to 10 km/h. It is activated when reverse gear is engaged. It is activated when reverse gear is engaged and warns the driver with a visual and acoustic signal. This prevents collisions with people and damage to the rear of the vehicle.
The CarEye® reversing assistance system makes maneuvering easier and safer thanks to its visual display: light signals and acoustic warnings draw attention to objects in the danger zone. Persons approaching trigger an alarm. Persons moving away, on the other hand, are not signaled.
There are various technological approaches to turn assistance systems on the market. A distinction is made between technologies such as radar, ultrasound and sensor-optical systems. Whether it is a simple camera-monitor system (KMS) or a combination of sensors and KMS is often difficult to tell. With the CarEye Safety Angle, you will find a system that combines the advantages from both worlds. Highly sensitive optical sensor technology, combined with artificial intelligence. Through this, the system can not only detect objects, but also classify them. This means that the system recognizes whether it is a pedestrian, a cyclist, or even a vehicle. In addition, the system recognizes in which direction the object is moving, at what speed and whether, in connection with this and its own vehicle data, there is a risk of collision.
The CarEye Safety Angle was designed and implemented based on the UNECE working paper, document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2019/28, which has been in existence since 2018. Therefore, the Camera Wing also has 2 optical sensors (cameras). Through these cameras, the required visibility range and more can be covered, thus meeting the visibility requirements of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).
No, the system is offered as a retrofit variant. Your vehicle was registered with a conventional exterior mirror with type approval according to UN ECE R46. Thus, these are mandatory to leave on the truck.
No, that is not the case. The system is a driving assistance system and warns the driver shortly before or during critical situations by means of a suitable human-machine interface. The system is an assistance system. The responsibility remains with the driver.
The selection depends on the body / trailer of the truck. If the body of the truck is not wider than the cab, the short variant can be selected. For trucks with a body which is significantly wider than the cab, the long variant should be selected. We will be happy to advise you on this matter.
With the optionally available monitor, the information determined by the system is additionally presented to the driver visually. By means of an “overlay”, a colored border around the potential danger, the driver is immediately and clearly made aware of it. It is no longer necessary to look at the exterior mirror.
The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) is the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe. It is one of five regional commissions of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and is divided into an Executive Committee and Technical Committees. Subordinate to the Inland Transport Committee (ITC) is the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations. One of its aims is to harmonize legal requirements at global level for vehicles, vehicle systems and components.
In the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), a new UN regulation for a turn assist system was adopted at the March 2019 meeting of the UN World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2019/28). This regulation is expected to enter into force before the end of 2019. Since the new UN regulation regarding the required functionality of a turn assistance system (document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2019/28) has not yet entered into force, the available systems are currently tested and approved according to the recommendations for minimum requirements for a turn assistance system published by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).
The differences between the current recommendation and the upcoming UNECE regulations, listed in this overview as examples, are intended to show the functionality required and the significantly higher requirements placed on a turn assistance system by the UNECE.
- Warns of dangersbefore they ariseThanks to AI, CarEye® Safety Angle recognizes other road users as such, calculates possible collisions and only then warns the driver by means of signaling devices.
- Safetyeven in poor lighting conditionsCarEye® Safety Angle is also operational in very limited light conditions, darkness and bad weather, providing around-the-clock protection.
- Relieffor the driverCarEye® Safety Angle only warns the driver if a probable collision during the turn is detected by the turn assist system.
- Sustainable solutionfor many yearsSoftware updates make the CarEye® Safety Angle a safe assistance system.
- Cost reductionFewer cases of damageCarEye® Safety Angle ensures blind spot monitoring. This can prevent serious accidents when turning and their consequences for your company.
- Cost-effective retrofitfor all vehiclesCarEye® Safety Angle can be easily and inexpensively installed in your truck as a retrofit kit at any specialist workshop.
