After two years of development, Vehicle Camera Systems Limited will be launching its range of innovative cameras for recording vehicle accidents at the British Motor Show, July 18 – 30 at ExCel London.

TruScene Vehicle Accident Camera enables car owners, insurance companies and the police to view accidents to determine liability easily and without dispute which in turn will: simplify insurance claims, help reduce hit-and-run offences and reduce knock-for-knock settlements.

The TruScene TS-1L, a compact single lens camera unit, is mounted on the inside of the windscreen and incorporates a drop-down LCD screen for accurate alignment. Powered by the vehicle’s battery and connected via the ignition, it also uses GPS (Global Positioning System) to log the exact location of a recorded incident, as well as the time and date.

The TS-1L records journey footage on a 30-second loop, which is constantly replaced as the journey continues. When a predetermined level of g-force is reached – for example, at a point of impact with another vehicle, or obvious loss of control – a sensor is activated and the device commits the latest video image to memory. The driver can also manually record footage at any time.

The TruScene TS-1L can be connected to a PC to allow for easy transfer of footage via the internet to the TruScene database. The database decodes encrypted footage and stores it securely, until such time as an insurance company or police request to view the data as evidence of liability.

The TruScene Car Accident Camera is also available in a rear-view model. Using the same principal, the TruScene TS-1LR can be attached to the rear windscreen to record footage from the back of a vehicle. The Camera only requires a single power connection which makes for easy installation. In addition a national network of installers and resellers is being appointed. Advanced enquiries for the cameras has been higher than expected.

The first production units will be available in autumn 2006.
