BMW Night Vision uses an infrared camera, mounted in the BMW kidney grille, to detect people and animals up to a distance of 100 meters. As soon as the system registers a pedestrian or animal in the hazard area, a visual warning for the driver is shown in the Control Display, or optional Head-Up Display. With acute warning, an acoustic signal is given and the brakes are primed to ensure the shortest possible stopping distance.
In Europe and Asia, Night Vision with Dynamic Light Spot is offered on select BMW vehicles. Dynamic Light Spot projects a focused high-beam light directly onto animals and pedestrians in the path of the vehicle keeping the drivers eyes on the road.
Night Vision is available on BMW 7-Series, 6-Series, 5-Series, X5, and X6 models. See your local BMW dealer for more information.
