Automakers Revolutionize Night-Vision Technology with Thermal Imaging and More

It’s not exactly breaking news that even the top-of-the-line headlights don’t light up the road well enough so that every pedestrian, pet and animal is well within view. In fact, even with innovations in HID and LED headlamps and tail lights, over 4,000 pedestrians are killed every year from car accidents with over 70% of these incidents occurring at night. Automakers are working to combat limited night vision with driver assistance technologies like pedestrian-illuminating spotlights and an obstacle alerts via the head-up display.

Consumer Reports spotlights BMW as an innovator of night-vision technology, using thermal imaging to detect animals and people on or near the road after dark. Learn more about these high-tech features in the Consumer Reports video review below:

With all the money you save on purchasing a pre-owned vehicle, it’s worth considering investing in great safety features like these and more. See what our extensive used car inventory can offer a tech-savvy driver like yourself, here at Betterway Sales & Leasing in Stoney Creek, ON.
