Infiniti will be adding “moving object detection” to its 360 degree parking display system on its models.
The technology, which is currently undergoing final testing in Japan, uses both the dashboard’s central screen display and a loud chime to notify the driver of objects moving around the car during parking. Anything moving around the side of the car is also detected. It works when starting the car, or when driving at low speeds.
Infiniti said: “This technology helps supplement the driver's vision in situations such as leaving a parking space or when emerging from a junction with poor side visibility. Or indeed when arriving home after a long day at the office and the family dog is happy to see you.”
Around View Monitor was launched for the first time globally in October 2007 by parent company Nissan and has been available on the Infiniti EX and FX crossovers since 2008. Then earlier this year, Infiniti standardised the feature on its EX and FX Premium grades across Europe.
The addition of the new Moving Object Detection won’t need an additional sensor and it will be introduced within the next two years on Infiniti’s models.
