Car Backup camera system is the new technology
Referring to J.D. Power and Associates, car backup camera systems have become the most popular products for cars. A consumer interest survey by professional showed that it ranked number five. The more people need it, the more widely used it becomes. It's hardly to find a lower-end model supplying the system for 2011 cars. But, the main disadvantage of its generalized use is that expensive, more advanced systems are being provided. More advanced systems are definitely not a bad thing, but no one needs to pay a high price tag.
In 2008, Nissan had released the car camera system which uses four cameras to create a 360 degree view called Around View Monitor. The car cameras are installed on the front and rear of the car, as well as the sides. The four images are then converted to show an image of a virtual angle. Watching the videos of this system is nothing short of impressive. Unfortunately, it's only available on choose Nissan models.
Multiple cameras are only the beginning.Delphicar is currently making a system called Parking Guidance. Using multiple cameras, the system will help the driver park the car well. For those who have no confident to park, this is an innovative device. Being able to see through cameras is very helpful, but having step-by-step instructions is absolutely amazing. The system will tell you exactly when to turn your steering wheel so there is no room for error. Delphi Automotive is aiming at a 2012 release date.
Since Parking Guidance uses a computer to check the data from the cameras, I can only imagine how much this car camera system will cost. It will mostly only install for luxury cars. I do not doubt that within another decade it will become a standard feature. There are already systems that will help you park the car. Most consumers, also included me, are a little wary about this technology. Drivers still want to be in control of the car, not to mention the cost of such a feature is high.
One idea that's still in its early concept stage is a wide-screen monitor located on the top of the windshield. Current car backup camera systems require you to look at an in-dash screen or at your rear view mirror. Designer Ho-Tzu Cheng believes it's safer to simply look slightly up. The monitor will also show you the back of car clearly. There are many issues and problems that can arise, such as using the monitor at night and if it will impair the driver's vision. Cheng has his work cut out for him. It's only a matter of time before cars begin driving themselves, but for now, we can all benefit from a car backup camera system mounted in every car.
