BMW Night Vision reveals pedestrians or animals in the dark up to 300 metres ahead of the vehicle, thanks to an infrared camera that transmits a clear, high contrast image. So you can react to any possible hazards appropriately, even before the object comes into range of the headlights.
The panning function turns the camera image automatically when the vehicle is cornering, enabling the driver to detect obstacles in and beyond the approaching bend. A pedestrian crossing the road, for example, is safely revealed. Entering dark courtyards or garages, or driving on winding roads at night, is easier and safer.
