Auto Industry's First Camera-Based Forward Collision Alert System with Lane Departure Warning Introduced by General Motors
What if you had a camera mounted on the front of your car that warned you when you were getting too close to the car in front of you, or alerted you when you were drifting out of your lane?
With all the distractions we face while driving on the road; cell phones and kids screaming in the backseat, to name a few, technology that gives the driver an extra fraction of a second that there might be potential danger ahead, could make the difference between getting home or not.
General Motors will introduce the industry's first camera-based Forward Collision Alert system with Lane Departure Warning. The new active safety system uses a high-resolution digital camera that works like a human eye to look for shapes of vehicles and lane markings. The captured imagery is analyzed instantaneously by sophisticated software to warn drivers with audible warnings and visual alerts displayed high in the center of the dashboard.
Drivers have the ability to turn the alerts on and off, as well as set the warning distances. The 2012 GMC Terrain and Chevrolet Equinox will be the first vehicles to offer this technology.
