The Setup Wizard gives step-by-step, on-screen instructions via the Display/Monitor for Calibration, Birdseye View, and DVR settings. It is recommended for establishing all initial settings.
Birdseye 360 Main Menu
The system will prompt the user to calibrate the system with the Calibration Wizard if it has not been set up.
Two (2) calibration boards/mats must be visible within each Birdseye 360 camera view (4 channel and 6 channel) to successfully calibrate the system.
The system will communicate during calibration, indicating progress, and will prompt the user to make any adjustments if needed.
Within Automatic Calibration, Vehicle Type is selected to display the type of vehicle being calibrated. There is an option to include a unique/specific image of a vehicle (only .jpg or .png formats are accepted). The image file is stored on and accessed from the USB drive in the DVR/Control Box. A generic image can also be used and adjusted for size with the Vehicle Length and Vehicle Width settings.
When the system has been calibrated successfully, a system alert displays and the user can move on to system adjustments using the Birdseye View Wizard accessed in the Birdseye View Setup module.
Birdseye View Setup
After calibration, the Birdseye View Setup is where adjustments for viewing distance, camera line angle, and pedestrian detection are made via the Birdseye View Wizard.
The system can be adjusted at any time as needed, but it should be done at least once right after system calibration. The Birdseye Wizard will prompt the user to advance through multiple screens where adjustments can be made. On-screen instructions and progress indicators will be displayed throughout the process.
As adjustments are made to the Blending Angle Setup in the Left-Top, Right-Top, Left-Bottom, and Right -Bottom field numbers, the image on the left will display the new angles.
Note the difference in the width of the angles when adjusting from 16 to 47. Select the Next button to access or adjust the perimeter view fields.
The Birdseye Viewing Distance is the perimeter viewing distance around the vehicle. After making any adjustments to the perimeter view, select the Next button to view or adjust additional settings.
The FCW (Forward Collision Warning) module allows for automatic detection and warning indicators for object detection in the front of the vehicle.
The FCW is a toggle switch (On/Off) that can be changed at any time.
The PDS (Pedestrian Detection System) Module is used to automatically detect pedestrian traffic with the ability to increase and decrease filters for height, distance, speed (of object), width, and confidence (higher/lower detection sensitivity). An initial setting of at least 80 is recommended for the Confidence setting.
The pedestrian symbol displays when a pedestrian is within the vehicle’s perimeter according to the location (Left-Front, Left-Front, Right-Front, and Right-Back) and filter settings (height, distance, speed, width, and confidence) recorded in the PDS Module.
The DVR Setup Module has four (4) sections to establish or modify video recording settings, timing, and modes.
The DVR Wizard is used to define the Unit ID and establish video recording settings and system time settings. The DVR Wizard leads the user through the available settings and communicates with onscreen instructions.
If GPS is used, it will sync system timing to the time zone of the vehicle’s location.
The time setting establishes the time zone where the vehicle resides.
