Valeo - Driving Assistance Product Group

Back-over Protection System

Valeo has developed and introduced a Back-Over Protection system to help avoid accidents when reversing a vehicle. The system combines ultrasonic park assist sensors with an intelligent rear camera, bringing the advantages of each, in order to provide drivers and earlier and faster understanding of impediments to the rear of the vehicle even in low light conditions. The core innovation is the camera featuring a megapixel, high-resolution imager with vision based object detection seamlessly integrated with object detection from ultrasonic sensors. The camera and controls are packaged in a single one cubic inch box. The first vehicle to feature this system was introduced in 2013.
