Introduction
The Brigade Backeye®360 Select Camera Monitor System provides a simulated plan view of the vehicle and its
surroundings, as if a camera were mounted high overhead above the vehicle along with individually selectable
views to the rear, front , left and right. This enables the driver to see all around the vehicle by looking at a single
monitor. However, this ‘surround’ view is formed by cameras mounted on the vehicle. As such, the composite
view is not a true overhead plan view and objects will appear distorted due to the physical locations of the
cameras. Also, in regions where the views from adjacent cameras are combined, objects (pedestrians,
vehicles etc.) may appear distorted, or partial, since the image comes from two cameras pointing in
different directions. Due to the nature of the system, objects may not appear exactly as their real location
with respect to the vehicle; objects may be physically closer than they appear. In particular, objects above
ground level, may be closer than they appear and could be out of view. Drivers should, however, be alerted to
the presence of potential hazards.
It is imperative that Brigade Backeye®360 Select is fitted and commissioned by competent and trained technicians.
The installer is responsible for the fitness for purpose of the overall system and adheres to relevant regulations and
legislation. Operators of the vehicle to which the Brigade Backeye®360 Select system is fitted must be made fully
aware of how to interpret the images provided by the system so they will not be distracted by or rely completely on
it. Distraction can cause accidents.
The system is intended to aid the operator, who must still concentrate on operating the vehicle, obey traffic and
local regulations and continue to use his/her own training, senses and other vehicle aids, such as mirrors, as would
be done if the system were not in place. Nothing removes the responsibility of the operator to operate the vehicle in
a proper and lawful manner.
1.1 System Functionality
The system provides the driver/operator with a synthesized ‘birds-eye’ image of the vehicle using four ~185°
cameras typically mounted on the front, sides and rear of the vehicle.
The Standard System is also capable of presenting different views to the driver. If required these views are shown
automatically without driver initiation, this can be achieved by connecting the ECU’s trigger inputs to suitable
vehicle signals, e.g.: reverse gear, turn signals etc (the speed signal input is not currently used). These can also be
selected manually with the View Select Button (refer to section 2.5).
There is an optional Full Screen version of the system which will display the synthesized ‘birds-eye’ image as a full
screen only (this option requires ECU software to be updated see section 8). When the system is set up for Full
Screen the View Select button and triggers have no functionality.

Hardware Installation
4.1 Cameras (4 of)
The cameras are mounted flush to the body using the fixing points shown in section 11.2. The fixing kit contains 8
self-tapping screws to mount the cameras; these will need to be replaced with M4 machine screws and nuts on
some heavy duty applications. It is recommended that the cameras are soft mounted (temporarily fixed) to evaluate
the camera view before hard mounting them. The camera cables have grommets fitted to exit the back of the
camera and pass through a 13mm hole drilled in the mounting surface. The cameras are then connected to the
extension cables with IPX7 screw fit connectors. The camera cables are then routed to the ECU.
If it is not possible for the cable to exit from the underside of the camera
housing an exit can be made through the rear of the camera housing
using the camera grommet.
Camera positioning
The cameras are designed to be mounted on a vertical surface to give correct alignment of the image. The vehicle
body should occupy approximately 10% of the image at the bottom in the centre. In some cases the angle of the
cameras will need to be addressed. This will involve either using one of Brigade’s universal mounting brackets see
section 11.3 or fabricating suitable brackets to adjust the angle of the cameras to give the 10% occupancy of the
image. See examples below.
It is recommended that the cameras are fitted as symmetrically as possible, i.e. front and rear cameras central &
inline and the side cameras central & inline. In some cases the cameras cannot be fitted in this way, it will not stop
the system from operating normally after calibration, but may result in distortion of the image at the camera
extremes.
Cameras that are not mounted symmetrically may make the calibration process more difficult.

4.1.3 Horizontal mounting
Cameras can be mounted under slung on a horizontal plane. When mounted in this orientation the camera needs
to be rotated through 180° on its mounting bracket. Additional drain holes should be made in the lower corner of
the camera housing.

larger screws rotate the camera and refit)
4.2 Camera mounting Height
The mounting height of the cameras is crucial to the performance of the system. The minimum mounting height will
be dependent on a number of variables i.e. the length of the vehicle, the position of the cameras etc. As long as the
cameras are able to provide a view of the calibration grid see section 6.1 the system will calibrate but the overall
performance may not be deemed suitable. The height of the camera will affect the perspective of objects not at
ground level in the surround view. If the system is calibrated objects at ground level should be displayed correctly
only objects at height are affected by the cameras mounting height.

4.3 Cabling
Camera cables should be run in conduit and along suitable cable runs throughout the vehicle. Avoid running cables
with vehicle power cables to prevent possible interference. To prevent cable damage Always Allow a reasonable
radius when folding excess cable and do not over tighten cable ties. Note: 13mm hole required to pass connectors
through.
4.4 ECU
The ECU should be mounted in a location free from moisture and excessive heat.
Note: the ECU body does generate some heat during normal operation.
System connection
Refer to the vehicle manufacturers bodybuilder guidelines for installation procedures and connectivity in all
applications. Ensure the power and ignition connections are fused at source. For system connectivity, refer to
System Drawing section 10. trigger connections are optional and have no function when the system is configured
for full screen use. Note the speed trigger input currently has no function and should be left disconnected.
4.5 Monitor
The monitor should be fixed in a suitable location for the operator and in line with any current
legislation/regulations. Monitors may need to be rotated through 90° when the system is configured for Full Screen
use.

Initial System Power Up And Test
Turn on the vehicle ignition and check the image output on the monitor.
Each cameras single view can be checked by pressing the View Select
button on the Set-up & View Select button.
Connecting the calibration tool (without SD card) will put the system into full screen mode, where the cameras can
be viewed better. Scroll through each camera by pressing the view select button on the Set-up & View Select
button to check the views are unobstructed and all calibration grid reference points can be seen. Each camera is
named in the top left corner of the display, Front Camera, Rear Camera etc.
Note: ‘WARNING' will be displayed on the monitor until a calibration has been completed for the first time.

Calibration
6.1 Calibration Environmental
A minimum 2m perimeter is needed around the vehicle.
The floor needs to be a flat surface as calibration may not be possible if the ground is uneven.
The calibration pattern is made up of four triangles positioned as shown in Calibration pattern and vehicle
alignment below.
Calibration pattern and vehicle alignment
The calibration mats located to the front and rear of the vehicle should be squared using the crosshairs printed on
each mat and laid horizontal to the front and rear. The pattern should be spaced so that the vehicle is centered.
The image below is for indication purposes only and the dimensions for reference. Note: The more accurately the
pattern is laid the better the results will be. Always make sure the cameras can see the reference points as shown
below. Each camera must see two target mats and all three points of each triangle. The closer the mats are to the
cameras the easier and more acurate the calibration will be.
It is recommended that the mats are positioned approximately on the ground and checked before accurately
aligning the mats.
Recommended alignment tools: Chalk line or Laser.
The calibration specifications may vary depending on vehicle.
G1=G3 & G2=G4
6.2 Camera Image Collection
It is recommended to format the SD card prior to starting each calibration.
With the ignition OFF, connect the calibration tool to the ECU and turn the ignition ON (the monitor will display the
full screen image of the front camera) then insert the SD Card to the calibration tool.
At this point check that you do not have anything blocking the triangle points required for calibration see section
6.1, by scrolling through each full screen camera view see section 5.
Press and hold the View Select button for 3 seconds and release.
10
The image collection process will create an image file on the SD card and store the images captured (front.bmp,
rear.bmp, right.bmp and left.bmp. The progress will be displayed on the monitor as shown below.
Note: Do not remove the SD card during this process.
WARNING: Take care not to overwrite existing wanted files on the SD Card as there will be no warning; you
are about to save files under the same name.
Note: The on screen instructions will guide you through this process.
Once the process is complete, remove the SD Card from the calibration tool and insert it into an SD card reader on
the computer that the calibration will be performed on.
When the SD card is opened after the images have
been captured from the ECU there will be an image
folder. Within the image folder there should be four .bmp
files titled front.bmp, left.bmp, rear.bmp and right.bmp.
The captured images can be opened and checked again
for suitability for the calibration.
If images from the cameras have been captured
previously these can be reused. Copy the image folder
to the SD card and move to section 6.3 (the folder and
file names must be unaltered see above file names).
6.3 Setting up the SD Card for calibration
Copy either the Standard or Full Screen default SD
Card Data folder structure from the USB and paste
these folders onto the SD Card (which should already
have the “image” folder).

6.6 Opening the image files
The 4 camera images on the SD Card acquired from the Backeye®360 Select ECU must be loaded after the
configuration file is loaded.
Click the “Image Load” icon from the calibration tool bar.
Select the SD Card from “Image Load” window by pressing the
‘▼’ button.
Click the “Load” icon on the “Image Load” window.
A check mark will be displayed on the “Image Load” icon when
the images are successfully loaded and the camera images
will be displayed in the window.
6.7 Calibration Control Points
Once loaded, the triangles in the calibration pattern are automatically detected and the control points are displayed.
The software automatically detects the corners of the triangles and derives the coordinates of each image when
loaded. The operator must check the coordinates and if they are incorrect, adjust so that the calibration is possible.
Control point order
Front & Rear Camera View
Left & Right Camera View
WARNING: Ensure the control points are selected in the correct order as shown. Anything other than the
above will result in calibration failure.
The order of the control points starts from the triangle’s point closest to the vehicle and working clockwise to the
other two points. Calibration is not possible if the order of the control points is not correct.
Check the control point coordinates
Control point selection
It is important for calibration that the control points are positioned accurately. The control point image will enlarge
when the mouse curser is moved to the control point (shown below). This enables the control points to be
positioned accurately. Left click the control point that needs modifying. The selected control point cross will turn red
(shown below), and to deselect the control point, just left click anywhere else other than the selected control point.
14
Selecting the correct control point coordinates and control point modification
Align the control point to the outermost corner as shown below, aligning the blue lines to the triangle. The images
below show before and after alignment. It is recommended to move the control point outside of the triangle to leave
a clear gap between it and the triangle then work the point back towards the triangle until it meets the outer edge of
the triangle.
When a control point is selected (red) with the left mouse button held drag the mouse to move the control points to
the approximate position, release the left mouse button and while the control point is still red use the arrow keys on
the keyboard for fine adjustment (one press of an arrow will move the control point one pixel in that direction).
Check and modify all six control points for each camera.
6.8 Surround View Preview
Clicking the “Apply AVM” button will open the surround view
“Preview” window.
If the “Calibration Error” window is displayed this indicates an error in
the control point position this is generally due to one of two errors:
1. Control points are not accurately positioned, check the order and
position of the control points.
2. The calibration grid is not positioned accurately, realign the
calibration grid.
The preview window is shown below with the adjustment buttons labelled.

6.9 Surround View adjustments
Surround View Property
Change “Enter Marker Length” box to the triangle size of the calibration grid setup (Brigade calibration mats have
1500mm sides). Once the value has been entered press the enter key.
Mask Type
Change the Mask Type from ‘Predefined’ to ‘Blending Auto’ or ‘Blending FOV’ in the drop down box. ‘Blending
Auto’ is the Brigade default setting for standard installations.
or
Tick ‘Show Overlay Blend’ this helps to identify where the blend between
cameras is. The area of camera blend will be highlighted by a red area.
The ‘Blending Auto’ Mask Type blends the side cameras into the
front/rear cameras 180° at the front and rear ends of the mask area. As
shown in the image to the right.
Tick ‘Show Overlay Blend’ to identify highlight where the blends between
front/rear and side cameras are.
The ‘Blending FOV’ Mask Type allows the position of the blend between the front /rear and the side cameras to be
adjusted, this may be required in some cases when the cameras are not mounted symmetrically or the vehicle
shape will not allow the blends to be consistent when using ‘Blending Auto’.
The front and rear blend angles can be adjusted
independantly.
To adjust where the front/rear cameras start to blend
change the angles the FOV angle from 180˚- 0˚
16
Adjusting the vehicle body size
When the Mask type is selected the vehicle dimensions can be entered. Input the vehicle length and width into the
“Vehicle Dimensions” window and press the enter key to apply. This will determine the size of the vehicle mask
area.
Rotation
If the whole image is not straight minor adjustments can be made to correct this. Click the “Rotation” (C) buttons to
rotate the surround view as a whole. The example shows before and after rotation.
Click the rotation
button to correct the
rotation
Whole surround view is out of line
The whole image is now inline
Centering
Adjust the position of the vehicle mask area (A) using the arrow keys (B) on the screen if the vehicle and the centre
of the patterns do not align. The example below shows before and after movement (the red area is an area not
visible by the camera).
Click the up/down
movement button to
move the image up
and down
17
Click the left/right
movement button to
move the image left
and right
Once the preferred mask position has been established check to see there is not excessive vehicle body or camera
blind area (red area) shown.
In some cases, the exact vehicle dimensions may leave some of the body or camera blind area visible (this is due
to camera positioning and mounting angles). Adjust the vehicle dimension values and reposition the vehicle mask
to remove the vehicle body or blind areas from the view.
Zoom in/Zoom out
When entering the Surround View Property dimension you may find that the overall view is insufficient leading to
the view having to be ‘zoomed in or out’.
The size of the area in view around the vehicle can be adjusted by altering the Surround View Property. (Increasing
the Surround View Property will zoom in and decreasing the Surround View Property will zoom out)
When using this technique to zoom in or out, the vehicle dimensions have to be reduced or increased at the same
ratio. For example, in the images below the Surround View Property has been decreased by 25% therefore the
vehicle dimensions must also be decreased by 25% to maintain the correct vehicle mask size.
X 0.75
The V-Ratio button can be used to alter the surround view area but it is advisable to use surround view property
method as adjusting the V-Ratio only adjusts the surround view area and not the mask size therefore the vehicle
dimensions to triangle size dimensions ratio is not maintained.
18
6.10 Loading Vehicle overlay
Click the “Load Car Image” button this will open a windows explorer
window.
Select an appropriate vehicle image from the Backeye®360 Select USB
stick
The vehicle image files can be found in the Vehicle images folder on the
USB stick. See section 12 USB contents.
Bespoke vehicle images can be created, the image must be 24bit .bmp
format, background must be Black (RGB 0,0,0), vehicle colour RGB must
have no 0 values). Any colour that contains a 0 value in the RGB will be
displayed as transparent. Paint or Paint.Net may be used to create or
modify existing vehicle overlays.
The vehicle image will be overlaid on to the surround view.
To resize the image use the eight adjustment boxes
around the image. When the mouse curser is positioned
onto one of the adjustment boxes the curser will change
to an adjustment arrows with the left mouse button held
drag the mouse to adjust the size of the image. To
reposition the image position the mouse curser within
the adjustment boxes with the left mouse button held
drag the mouse to move the image. Note it is
recommended to have the vehicle image slightly larger
than the vehicle mask.
Applying vehicle image to surround view
Apply the vehicle image by clicking the “Apply” button.
The vehicle image needs to be selected (adjustment
boxes displayed) to be applied.
If the image is not selected a warning window will be
displayed.
If the image is not in the correct position after it was applied, the vehicle image will need to be reloaded and
adjusted again. There is no undo button to go back.
6.11 Camera view adjustment (Standard system only)
If required the single camera views can be individually
adjusted.
Select the view to be adjusted from the “Select a View”
menu. (Do not use “View_Right” or View_Left” as they
have no function)
19

6.12 Parking Guide (Standard system only)
If required markers can be overlaid onto either of the single camera rear
views.
When “VIEW_REAR” or “VIEW_REAR_FULL” are selected from “Select a
View” menu the “Parking Line Assistance” button will be activated.
Click the “Parking Line Assistance” button this will open a windows
explorer window.
20
Select an appropriate Parking Line from the Backeye®360 Select USB
stick see section 12.
Bespoke Parking Lines can be created, the image must be 24bit .bmp
format, background must be Black (RGB 0,0,0), line colour RGB must
have no 0 values). Any colour that contains a 0 value in the RGB will be
displayed as transparent. Paint or Paint.Net may be used to create or
modify existing Parking Lines.
The parking line will be overlaid on the selected rear view whenever that
view is displayed.
Once a parking line has been loaded “Parking line 000” must be selected
to remove the parking lines (this is an all black file that will be transparent
when loaded to the view).
When the parking line is applied “overall length” box in vehicle dimensions is activated. Adjusting this value will
move the parking line up and down the camera view image.
A shorter overall length value will move the parking guide down in the camera view, a longer overall length value
will move the parking line up in the camera view (adjusting this value has no effect on the surround view image).
Note: The overall length value indicates approximately where the top of the Parking Line .bmp file will be positioned
and is not related to the position of the lines in the .bmp file I.E. if a line is positioned at the top of the BMP image
the overall length value will identify approximately where this line is positioned.
If the width of the parking lines requires adjusting this must be done by selecting an alternative parking guide file or
creating a bespoke BMP image.
The parking lines will always be positioned in the centre and horizontal to the single camera image so if the view is
adjusted (see section 6.11) the parking lines will move with the view.
6.13 LUT Version
Default
If required the installer can create an identifying number for the calibration.
If the installer does not modify this the default version will be 1.0.
The LUT version must be made of two digit numbers with no letters.
It is not recommended to use this feature for aftermarket installations.
See section 9 for details of version identification
21
If the input is too long or the version is set to 0.0 then a warning message
will be displayed.
6.14 Creating Surround view data for download to ECU
Save LUT file to SD Card
Click the “Save LUT” button on the tool bar.
SD Card selection
Click the ‘▼’ button in the “Data Save” window and
select the SD Card you have been working with.
Click the “Save” button in the “Data Save” window.
Lut, Osd and Param folders will be updated on the SD
Card.
A progress window will be displayed
When the files have been created a confirmation
window will be displayed
Do not close the software. Do not click the “EXIT” button.
If changes need to be made to the calibration they can be made then simply resave the LUT files again. If the
software is closed then the calibration process must be started from the beginning. Only close the software once
the calibration has been loaded to the ECU, has been tested and is found to be performing as required (refer to
section 7).
6.15 ECU Upload
With the ignition OFF, connect the calibration tool to the ECU and turn the ignition ON (the monitor will display the
full screen image of the front camera) then insert the SD Card to the calibration tool and wait approximately 5
seconds.
Press the Program button for less than 1 second on the
Set-up button.
If the button is held for more than 1 second the “Version
Information” screen will be displayed see section 9.
If the button is pressed too quickly a black screen may
be displayed, reset the power and retry.
The update information is shown on the screen (this will
take approximately 3 minutes).
22
The ‘Data Upload Info’ screen will show ‘Success’ for
each element loaded.
If there are any changes carried out after the initial ECU
upload then a second upload is required, you may see
‘Failed’ next to some elements, this means that the file
is the same and does not need updating (this will most
commonly be seen with the “OSD Data” for the
Standard system).

Note: The on screen instructions will guide you through this process
Press & Hold the R button and disconnect the calibration tool from the ECU simultaneously, the system should
reset and display the calibrated view.

Checking System Functionality
7
Check to see if the output is normal after the ECU resets.
Ensure all blended areas are fully tested to make sure there are no blind spots around the vehicle.
It is recommended to get an assistant to walk around the vehicle in the surround view to evaluate the calibration.
7.1 Good calibration
All ground level objects i.e. road markings will be displayed as they are
in the real world (it is recommended that the calibration grid is left on the
ground to aid calibration evaluation). There are no blind spots in the
surround view including in blend areas. An object not at ground level
(i.e. human body) should be visible all the way around the vehicle,
objects not at ground level may be displayed from two perspectives in
the blend area and will fade from one camera to the next. There is no
unwanted view of the vehicle in the surround view.
7.2 Bad calibration
Ground level objects appear misaligned or distorted
There are parts of the vehicle in the view
The ground objects are not square to the vehicle

DSP Upload
The DSP file on the ECU can be updated to provide either Standard View or Full Screen View operation if required.
Note! If the vehicle images have already been captured
(see section 6.2) save these to the PC to reload ready
for recalibration once DSP has been updated.
It is recommended to format the SD card prior to starting
DSP updates.
The DSP files will be found on the Backeye®360 Select
USB.
Copy either the Standard or Full Screen DSP “app”
folder from the USB and paste this folder onto the SD
Card.
See section 13 for features active with various DSP
versions.
With the ignition OFF, connect the calibration tool to the ECU and turn the ignition ON (the monitor will display the
full screen image of the front camera) then insert the SD Card to the calibration tool and wait approximately 5
seconds. Press the R button, the system will restart and begin the update.
While updating the DSP the screen will display no image, the Green LED on the Calibration tool will flash, switch
off for a few seconds then begin to flash again, once the upload is complete the LED will illuminate Red briefly then
green and stay illuminated green. This process should take around 25 seconds.
Once complete, Press & Hold the R button and disconnect the calibration tool from the ECU simultaneously, the
system should reset and display a status screen.
&
25
Please note if changing the DSP from the Standard
system to the Full Screen system or vice versa the
system may display an error message. This will be
resolved once the correct calibration files have been
loaded to the ECU.
Delete the DSP file from the SD Card.
Now begin the calibration see section 6.
(if images have already been captured, copy the saved
image folder back to the SD card and proceed to section
6.3 )

Version Information Screen
The system information loaded to the ECU can be viewed to identify system setup.
With the ignition OFF, connect the calibration tool (without an SD card inserted) to the ECU and turn the ignition
ON (the monitor will display the full screen image of the front camera). Press the Program button on Set-Up & View
Select Button for more than 2 seconds and release the “Version Information” screen will be displayed.
