Night Vision for BMW
Night Vision with Pedestrian Detection and Warning
Driving in the dark becomes a more relaxing experience with BMW Night Vision. This optional system reveals objects 3 to 4 times farther than the headlight range, thanks to an infrared camera that transmits images to the Control Display. BMW is the world's first carmaker to offer person detection globally. Intelligent algorithms look specifically for pedestrians shown in yellow in the video. Should the system detect any danger to individual persons, the driver receives an additional warning on the Control Display or optional Head-Up Display.> The Technology behind Night Vision
