Night Vision Technology in Automobiles
Safety and security of life are the two most successful words in the field of transport and manufacturing. The
world has known from being a just simple form of day to day life to being aeon of mean and daring machines. Thus the
safety of the people both inside and outside the vehicle is of prime concern in the car manufacturing industry and scientists
are working day in and day out to ensure more and more complex forms of security for the human kind.After dark, your
chances of being in a fatal vechicle crash go up sharply, though the traffic is way down. Inadequate illumination is one of the
major factors in all the car crashes that occur between midnight and 6 a.m. Headlights provide about 50 meters of visibility
on a dark road, but it takes nearly 110 meters to come to a full stop from 100 km/hr. At that speed, you may not respond fast
enough to an unexpected event, simply because the bright spot provided by your headlights doesn't give you enough
time.Thus emerged the night vision systems that use infrared sensors to let driver see as much as 3 or 4 times farther ahead
and help them quickly distinguish among objects.
