BMW Night Vision: Spot the deer before it's caught in the headlights

Web video demonstration of BMW's Night Vision. The new technology makes driving at night much safer.

BMW 5 Series sedan is sporting new bells and whistles including BMW Night Vision. The new technology uses an infrared camera with a wide-angle lens to create images of the surroundings based on heat. Warm objects, such as animals or pedestrians, appear as bright shapes.

This 30-second video demonstrates how BMW Night Vision works.

A digital zoom feature captures objects far away. A panning function turns the camera image automatically when the vehicle is cornering, enabling the driver to detect obstacles in the road. Drivers are safer negotiating dark courtyards and garages.
