BMW Night Vision.
Driving in the dark becomes safer. The optional BMW Night Vision from BMW ConnectedDrive can even see in the dark and warns the driver of any hazards located outside of the range of the headlights.
An infrared camera positioned behind the BMW kidney grille surveys the area up to 300 metres ahead of the vehicle. Pedestrians and cyclists are identified and highlighted on the Control Display. Three processors simultaneously calculate the movement of pedestrians and the course of the BMW M5 Sedan. In critical situations an acoustic signal and optical warnings indicate the acute hazard. In this way, the driver can recognise obstacles considerably sooner and thus react in time.
