Benefits of Audi Night Vision Help Light the Way for Safer Driving

How Does Audi Night Vision Work?

You may not have known that some Audi models have night vision. After all, night vision is a technology that you would think it too high tech to be used in a car, but when it comes to Audi, no technology is off limits. So, how does Audi night vision work? Let's take a look.

When driving in low light conditions, such as at twilight and after dark, the Audi Night Vision Assistant system can help you to spot objects in front of the vehicle that might otherwise be difficult to see. The system does this by using a thermal imaging camera on the front of the vehicle.

This camera picks up on the heat given off by objects, such as animals or people in the roadway. A thermal image of the roadway ahead is projected onto the central display of the vehicle. The image will be in black and white, however, detected objects up to 100 meters can be highlighted in yellow. When objects appear to be a hazard, they can then be displayed in red and an audible warning may sound.
