When it comes to safety on the roads, the driver still holds the prerogative to ensure that all is well on the road as well as with the vehicle, although there are plenty of technological wonders that will certainly make our life a whole lot easier. Nissan’s latest safety function will rely on a quartet of cameras in order to detect moving objects, where the bird’s eye view of a vehicle will definitely go some way in helping increase passive safety on the roads.
This new function is smart enough to estimate the existence of a moving object thanks to video data collected by cameras which are mounted on the vehicle, and the driver will be notified of any potential obstacles. Whenever the vehicle runs at a low speed, this system would come in handy especially when you’re backing up and might miss your dog or kid in a blind spot.
Known as the “Around View Monitor”, it will combine images from four cameras, where a special algorithm recognizes moving objects around the vehicle. Still, there’s no point of having a warning system if you are not aware of any potential warnings and still barrel backwards.
