360° safety thanks to the all-round view

MAN BirdView provides you with a 360° bird’s-eye view of the immediate vicinity of your vehicle, including all blind spots.

1
High-resolution cameras

Four HD cameras with fish-eye lenses mounted on the outside of your vehicle transfer their images to the 7-inch colour screen in the cockpit. Thanks to the comprehensive all-round view of the multi-camera system, you can see other traffic or obstacles, thus minimizing the risk when turning or manoeuvring.

2
Automatic activation

MAN BirdView switches on automatically. The view of the surroundings (front, sides, rear) on your monitor changes depending on the situation. The system takes into account the current speed, activation of an indicator or the gear selection, among other things.

3
Additional recorder

With the optionally available recorder it is also possible to document the images delivered by your MAN BirdView camera, for example for later damage analysis.
