The Car Learns How to See - Camera-Based Assistance Systems
Mercedes-Benz introduced its first camera-based assistance system – Night View Assist – in 2005. In addition to the improvement of this system, Mercedes-Benz takes the development one step further by introducing the multi-purpose camera. This camera combines three driver assistance systems, the Adaptive Highbeam Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Speed Limit Assist, in one component – available for the first time in the new E-Class.
