Swapping Mirrors For Cameras

morrorless trucks seymour transport R

In the last couple of weeks, two new Mirrorless Trucks have been added to our Seymour fleet which bring a variety of advantages. Mercedes have commented on these Mirrorless trucks saying that they have seen great improvements in aspects such as efficiency and safety. The conventional main mirrors have been replaced with digital cameras which provide a much better all-round view. These cameras are calibrated with the trailer length to provide better visibility at all times. As well as improved safety, the digital cameras bring aerodynamic advantages such as a reduction in fuel consumption. This truck goes over and above as it brings more advantages than just the MirrorCam , including the Active Drive Assist and the Active Brake Assist. Fantastic additions to the Seymour Transport fleet.
