- The Touareg's thermal imaging camera can detect endangered persons and wild animals at night sooner than any human being
- The Night Vision feature can detect objects up to 130 metres away in the dark, warn the driver and activate the braking system
Technology highlights of the new Touareg – Part 1: Night Vision protects people and animals when driving in the dark
The new Touareg will be released onto the market packed with a range of innovations designed to help minimise dangerous situations. The new Touareg is the first Volkswagen model available with the Night Vision assist system. A thermal image camera (infrared camera) integrated at the front of the car registers infrared radiation coming from a living organism. If this camera detects people or animals, the assistant warns the driver within the limits of the system. This reduces the risk of endangering pedestrians, especially when away from well-lit city streets.
