Grote Industries, Stoneridge showcase wired rear-view trailer camera

by Today's Trucking

Grote Industries, manufacturer of heavy-duty lighting and vehicle safety systems, and Stoneridge, designer and manufacturer of electronic and electrical systems, are offering a wired rear-view trailer camera. 

Using Grote’s 4SEE Smart Trailer System, the solution is connected through the standard J560 7-way connector, meaning no additional front-to-rear wiring is required. It enables real-time video directly from the back of the trailer to a video display in the cab.

With the ability to seamlessly integrate into Stoneridge’s suite of vision systems, including MirrorEye CMS, drivers will have a greater field of view of the side and rear of the tractor-trailer. Adaptable 4SEE technology allows Grote to link with proximity radar systems to alert drivers using bi-color marker lights on the front of the trailer and on the app in the cab, quickly informing them of dangers like obstacles and vehicles in the path of a backing truck or in blind spots when changing lanes.
