How it works:
Night Vision uses infrared camera technology to highlight animals and pedestrians on the road at night which may not be visible to the naked eye. An infrared camera is mounted in the front grille of the vehicle. It generates thermal video images of the road ahead. An onboard computer (ECU) runs algorithms to detect animals and pedestrians in the path of the vehicle. Night Vision reacts in less than 150 milliseconds to highlight animals and pedestrians on an in-dash display. An alert will occur if the driver doesn't change the course of the vehicle or apply the brakes.
In Europe and Asia, Night Vision with Spotlight Function is offered on select vehicles. Spotlight Function projects a focused high-beam light directly onto animals and pedestrians in the path of the vehicle keeping the drivers eyes on the road.
