Cameras at Core of New Vehicle Safety Systems


Cam­era-based safe­ty sys­tems are designed to reduce annu­al loss­es of $11 bil­lion from rear-end crash­es. Automak­ers and after­mar­ket man­u­fac­tur­ers are now expand­ing cam­era sys­tems to give 360-degree view, improved night vision, pro­vide park­ing assis­tance, alert sleepy dri­vers, and help catch car thieves. The mar­ket will exceed $100M by 2012.
