On many new vehicle models, drivers have little visibility with regard to their immediate surroundings. Side and rear windows are becoming increasingly small, while the exterior shape of vehicles is dictated by aerodynamics and pedestrian safety, meaning precise, secure maneuvering and parking are almost impossible.
Valeo’s multi-camera system helps the driver by providing a perfect view of the vehicle’s environment. Miniature cameras record the surroundings and transmit the images to an intelligent control unit, which carefully processes them and optimizes them before displaying them on the vehicle’s color screen.
The new 360Vue® 3D system gives not only full visibility right around the vehicle in a view from above, but also a 3-dimensional view of the vehicle’s environment. The driver can perform maneuvers or leave a parking space safely, with excellent visibility of all obstacles in the vicinity of the vehicle and the capacity to see into all blind spots.
