Backup Cameras and Collision Avoidance

New Safety Technology Without the New Car

If avoiding accidents and keeping you and your passengers safe in the car is a priority, it might be time to see what's new in-car safety technology. The best part is, you don't actually need a new car to get it.

The U.S. department of transportation and NHTSA believe that backup cameras are such a vital safety feature, that by 2018 all cars in the U.S. will be required to be manufactured with backup cameras (also called rear view cameras). But what if your car didn't come with a backup camera?

Backup Cameras and Collision Avoidance

Since the average car on the road is about 11 years old, chances are it didn’t. Fortunately, it is a relatively straightforward process to get a backup camera system installed. Backup cameras engage as soon as the driver puts the car into reverse. The view from the camera is displayed either on a screen in the dash, an external add-on monitor, or maybe even into a the rearview mirror itself.

Backup sensors can also be installed to alert the driver with a beeping sound when an object is getting too close while backing up. Every car has at least a couple of blindspots and this new technology addresses one of the leading causes of accidents.

Every vehicle is different, so it is important to make these improvements with a professional who knows exactly what your car needs and how to install it. At Audiotronics we offer expert advice as well as stress free installation.
