REAR VIEW SYSTEMS FOR EMERGENCY AND SPECIAL-PURPOSE VEHICLES
The segment of special-purpose and emergency vehicles is characterised by exacting requirements for the various vehicle types, each of which fulfils very specific functions. Examples are refuse or winter service vehicles, police cars, ambulances or fire engines. What they all have in common: exposure to extreme climatic conditions, limited visibility for drivers, operation under time pressure and considerable public scrutiny. Versatile LUIS camera systems provide reliable support by monitoring the surroundings from various perspectives, displaying images either on the vehicle’s OEM terminal/on-board system or on a LUIS monitor.
LUIS camera-monitor systems demonstrably enhance the safety of both special-purpose and emergency vehicles and the personnel operating them. Whether they are parallel-parking, manoeuvring, driving, turning or changing lanes. The systems are versatile and can be upgraded with additional cameras or mobile digital recorders (MDR) at any time.
Furthermore, emergency vehicles are valuable assets that must be protected against damage or theft. Additionally, municipal vehicles are required to operate safely and with exemplary caution when navigating road traffic.
LUIS offers professional technology solutions that allow municipalities to meet the typical challenges of deploying communal vehicles and vehicle fleets with outstanding efficiency. One aspect above all is vital: Optimal, all-round visibility at all times!

LUIS solutions – optimal visibility at all times while delivering municipal services:
Turn assistants – safety when turning
Municipal vehicles such as emergency vehicles, gritters or street sweepers perform communal services. This can take place under considerable time pressure, for example when fire engines or ambulances are needed to assist in an emergency. Emergency vehicle drivers must be free to focus on their task, unhindered by limited visibility to the side or rear of the vehicle and the resulting increased risk of accidents. From 2022, the use of turn assistants will become mandatory in the European Union. LUIS TURN DETECT® is widely considered a pioneering turn assistant system. It is currently the only one of its kind to detect cyclists even in separate lanes or behind parking vehicles.
Rear view systems – Know what is behind you
Here at LUIS, we specialise in solutions that offer excellent all-round visibility from all types of vehicles at all times. All these solutions are based on camera-monitor systems that are specifically tailored to our customers’ requirements.
The different modules and components are highly versatile and can be used for multiple purposes. The customer determines the desired set-up and components. These components operate in combination to augment functionality depending on individual requirements. Of particular interest for municipal vehicles are rear view cameras and systems that facilitate reversing and parallel parking and offer optimal all-round visibility, including to the rear. These systems eliminate so-called blind spots – people or objects are visible even directly behind the vehicle. Encrypted digital wireless technology ensures stable, low-interference operation. LUIS systems are easy to retrofit into existing driver assistance systems.
360-degree systems – guaranteed all-round visibility
Our 360-degree systems offer all-round visibility in every situation. They feature all-round vision cameras that eliminate any blind spots for special-purpose and other vehicles from municipal vehicle fleets. Emergency vehicle drivers can see what is happening behind and around their vehicle at all times.
Telematics – perfect planning and disposition
Municipalities are subject to increasing economic pressures. They must deploy their vehicles as efficiently as possible while managing entire fleets. Nowadays, no municipality can afford to do without state-of-the-art fleet management. LUIS offers fleet management modules to facilitate the economic deployment of municipal vehicle fleets. Our mobile digital recorders record all relevant visual and safety data. In an emergency, these records can help to determine liability claims or investigate theft.
LUIS systems also offer predictive maintenance supported by innovative solutions, including the use of artificial intelligence (AI).
LUIS solutions are the first choice for municipalities looking to deploy a variety of special-purpose vehicles.
LUIS systems are highly versatile and can be adapted to the needs and capabilities of individual municipal customers. In addition to standard system solutions, we develop individual, bespoke systems upon request. The parameters of individual components can be adapted to fit each customer’s requirements. One example is the positioning of cameras and monitors.
Night vision options facilitate the use of communal vehicles at any time of the day or night and in all seasons. Gritters and emergency vehicles in particular rely on these options.
Customers have the choice between wired and wireless systems. Wireless communication may, for example, be used to inform other members of the vehicle fleet of any danger spots detected. Individual system components can be adapted to become more rugged and resilient against external factors and adverse conditions, for example with high IP classes. LUIS fleet management components facilitate the professional management and operation of municipal vehicle fleets.
