Autoliv’s Night Vision Selected For Cadillac’s Truth + Dare Driving Experience
(Stockholm, Sweden, July 19, 2016) – – – Autoliv, Inc. (NYSE: ALV and SSE: ALIVsdb), the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems, is invited to showcase the company’s Night Vision technology as part of Cadillac’s Truth + Dare driving experience. The event will demonstrate Cadillac vehicles’ luxurious features, agile drive dynamics, and cutting-edge technology. Participants will explore the benefits of Night Vision and its ability to alert drivers of pedestrians and animals in the path of the vehicle.
The first-ever Cadillac CT6 features the industry’s most advanced Night Vision safety technology, developed exclusively by Autoliv. Night Vision uses an infrared camera mounted in the front grille of the vehicle that senses temperature differences, making objects on the road visible to the driver even through darkness, fog and smoke. Autoliv’s custom algorithms detect animals and pedestrians in the path of the vehicle, and enables alerts to the driver through icons in the instrument cluster and head-up display. If the vehicle is in danger of a collision with a pedestrian or animal, a rapid beeping tone or pulsing of the safety alert seat is activated.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Cadillac’s Truth + Dare event,” said Stuart Klapper, Autoliv Night Vision Managing Director. “This is a great opportunity for Autoliv to exhibit our Night Vision Active Safety technology to Cadillac’s guests, and are honored that Cadillac has selected Night Vision to be presented amongst other cutting-edge technologies at this event.”
The Truth + Dare driving experience launches in New York on July 14th, and will continue on to Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Miami.
