A reversing camera (also called rear-view camera or backup camera) is a special type of camera attached to the rear of the vehicle. It can help you see the area behind the car when backing up. It usually provides a greater field of view than can be obtained by turning your head. This increased visibility can help prevent crashes on backups.
HOW TO USE IT?
When you swap the car back to REVERSE, the reversing camera turns on automatically. The video display shows an image of the area behind the car. The display screen is usually located in the rear view mirror or on the dashboard.
In some systems, images may include lines that show distance. Some reversing cameras have pathway lines to help you estimate the space you need to park. These lines may be adjusted depending on your steering and wheel movement.
When you shift out of REARSE mode, the reversing camera will turn off. Some cars also allow you to manually turn off the reversing camera by pressing a button.
How does it work?
The reversing camera is located at the rear of the car. It is connected to a display that shows you what is happening in the rear area of the vehicle.
Reversing warning system.
Some backup camera systems include sensors in the rear bumper. These sensors can detect objects behind the car. When an object is detected, the system provides a warning light and/or a warning sound.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Some cars are also equipped with rear cross traffic alerts. This system can help you exit your parking space when your vision may be impaired. Sensors monitor both sides of the vehicle. If an oncoming vehicle is detected, it will alert you.
