Advanced Driving Assistance Technologies
Magna's camera signals are processed and stitched into one single picture to show the vehicle from a bird's-eye view. By providing drivers with a seamless 360° view of the vehicle and surrounding environment, vehicle safety and driver/passenger security are enhanced.
At certain intersections, the driver cannot evaluate the traffic situation until very late. With Cross Traffic View the driver sees an early overview of the situation displayed from front, left and right views, and can react accordingly. The feature supports the driver in the early detection of children, pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles and surrounding objects while in garages, narrow streets, tight junctions and other difficult driving situations.
Rear AEB ultrasonic based object detection fused with camera will automatically apply brakes during backup maneuvers in case of an emergency and imminent collision.
Magna’s Rear Seat Monitoring displays a view of the second and third row passengers in light or dark conditions with a high definition camera. Provides zoom feature. Driver distractions are limited.
Transitioning to Autonomous Driving
Magna Electronics is actively developing products for an autonomous future. Semi-Autonomous is the transition stage that will help move the industry from on-demand autonomy with driver supervision to completely autonomous driving systems, which interact with every aspect of the car ecosystem.
