Better visibility for safer driving at night.

Night View Assist Plus enables drivers to recognise pedestrians or larger animals in the dark sooner.

They are clearly shown in the instrument display. To do this the system illuminates the road ahead with two infra-red headlamps without dazzling other drivers. With the help of an infrared camera behind the windscreen, the entire high beam range is shown as a crystal-clear greyscale image. A thermal imaging camera in the radiator grille enables a targeted warning to be given by distinguishing irrelevant objects such as clusters of road signs or bushes from relevant objects such as people and large animals. These are shown in the display framed in by small coloured frame-corners. The Spotlight function can flash a spotlight repeatedly at pedestrians in a hazardous situation so that the driver can detect them more readily and they can realise they are in danger. As standard procedure the Night View image is only phased in automatically when a dangerous situation has been detected.
