NEOPLAN: CAMERA'S INSTEAD OF MIRRORS
The Neoplan Skyliner and Cityliner can optionally be fitted with a new replacement mirror system. The German coach manufacturer claims it is an effective measure to prevent blind spot-related accidents. Furthermore now Neoplan also give customers the possibility to choose for a stairs at the right-hand side of the coach. And the D26 engine is again improved.
Camera's on both sides of the vehicle deliver real-time images on two displays built on the A-pillar into the driver's field of view thereby eliminating any blind spot. The camera technology used supports high-resolution display of the surrounding area irrespective of daylight so that the driver has improved view at night and in changing light conditions. Also the Cityliner can be equipped with a bird view system, which supports observation of the surroundings with six cameras. The image is output to a separate monitor on the driver’s console.
To answer the needs of the customer and accommodate optimised passenger flow and a higher seating capacity, as an option Neoplan can now move the front stairs to the right-hand side of the vehicle. Thus 78 passengers can find a comfortable seat on the double decker.
The drive system for the Skyliner and Cityliner comprises a redesigned D26 engine now delivering 510 HP (375 kW) and a maximum torque of 2,600 Nm and features the new generation of MAN TipMatic Coach automated gear shift transmission.
