Night Vision with Pedestrian Detection
Optional BMW Night Vision allows drivers to see animals and pedestrians over 900 feet ahead—in the dark. Utilizing infrared technology from the vehicle’s built-in, front camera, the 5 Series displays potential road hazards on the navigation system monitor so that drivers might avoid them well before they are visible to the naked eye. In the 5 Series, Night Vision Pedestrian Detection technology distinguishes between animals and humans and alerts the driver accordingly. At a closer range, it identifies their position and the direction in which they are moving. If a pedestrian approaches or crosses the road, thermal imaging technology alerts a 5 Series system to display a symbol in the control panel and, if equipped, on the Head-Up Display.
