About the size of a deck of playing cards, TRW Automotive Holdings’ camera-and-multisensor package provides a vehicle with the capability to see the road, the environment, and the lighting conditions under which a driver is operating. The camera-and-multisensor package is very small and lightweight yet includes the processing power needed to support many functions. The unit is positioned in the region of the rearview-mirror mount, looking outward through the windshield. Beyond automatic on-off headlamp control, the camera technology can also determine in low-light conditions if other traffic is in the vicinity, and if not, it can automatically switch on the high beams for better vision at night or in tunnels. Additionally, the rain sensor focuses on the windshield glass surface and uses an optical sensor that measures reflected light.
