By several estimates, back-up cameras can help prevent accidents.
What is the purpose of a rear view camera system?
They allow the driver to see behind the vehicle in the area, which mirrors alone cannot reach, also called the Blind Zone.
People don’t buy a new car for the back-up camera, but if they’ve driven one with the device, it’s hard to go back to doing without, says Fennell, founder and president of KidsandCars.org, which lobbied extensively for mandatory rear view technology. “I flip out if I have to get a rental car without it,” she says.
Back-up cameras send images to a display through wires inside the car. Automakers configure back-up cameras to transmit images to a vehicle’s built-in dashboard display or rear view mirror.
Can I buy your systems without installation?
