The new technology used by Vaxhall is particularly useful in preventing potential accidents with cyclists and pedestrians when turning left.
The new automobile vehicle security systems feature combines two cameras that provide a range of views to the rear and to the side. The first camera mounted above the rear doors overlooks the area behind the vehicle. The display is shown on a dedicated five-inch screen while reversing and parking. The driver can also switch between a close and wider rear view. The wider rear view can also be shown when driving forwards, displaying a distance of four to over 30 metres behind the Combo Cargo.
The second camera present under the passenger-side mirror of the Combo Cargo shows the passenger view towards the rear. The driver can see where the cyclists or pedestrians are by switching to the display through the touchscreen. This allows the driver to safely turn left or the side of the vehicle that is clear, preventing a potential accident.
This new feature is part of the Parking Pack, a smart solution for today’s overcrowded roads. The pack also consists of front and rear parking distance sensors, power-folding door mirrors, front fog lights and ultrasonic side sensors. The parking pack, including the Surround Rear Vision Camera, is available from £666.67 +VAT.
