Night Vision

59

Description

Using the instrument display and night sensitive (IR?) front positioned video camera, show the road ahead clearer and further than what is seen by the naked eye.

Some systems also help identify pedestrians in the vehicles driving path with highlighting the pedestrian.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Systems have been a mixed bag with manufacturers introducing systems to fanfare and later dropping them due to poor demand.  Part of this may be due to early technology limitations and cost. Few vehicles offer this options. One is the 2013 Audi A6, as the primary part of a package of features for $5650.

Unlikely.

For those wanting night vision, why not wearing a night vision goggle ?
How about a thermal camera? That would enhance our vision greatly, not only at night but also in fog.
I think enhanced "vision" is a great idea for foggy conditions.
This seems like an inevitable feature once Tesla goes to autonomous driving (the vehicle will need to use augmented synthetic vision and that should at least be echoed to the flesh driver. : )
