AURORA, Ontario, May 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Magna’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are helping to pave the way for global automakers to improve safety, comfort and convenience. The company’s next-generation cameras and electronic control units that enable the benefits of 3D and surround view were recently launched on the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra.
The vehicle is equipped with Magna’s comprehensive surround view system comprising five cameras and an advanced electronic control unit to provide a high resolution view around the vehicle and assist the driver in various situations. Data is merged from the cameras and the system can render a “fly-over” 3D image of the vehicle and its surroundings on start-up. This feature gives the driver a global view of the surroundings and greater peace of mind when maneuvering the vehicle.
Magna’s advanced trailer and off-road assistance features were also first released as part of the system, including:
- Trailer Guidance, a semi-automated feature that helps the driver back a trailer to the desired location, which is especially helpful when backing into tight spaces.
- A one-time, automatic trailer hitch calibration to help simplify setup and enable faster swapping between different trailers.
- Multi-Terrain View that allows drivers to customize their bird’s-eye, front, side and rear view, improving visibility from different angles.
- A unique ‘see-through hood’ feature that allows drivers to see under the front hood of the vehicle, which aids them in off-road conditions and helps them avoid rocks or other off-road obstacles.
“We are proud to launch one of our most advanced vision systems that offers truck and trailer consumers enhanced levels of convenience, safety and peace of mind,” said Sharath Reddy, Vice President principal of Magna Electronics. “Towing can be a challenging task and with this intuitive system, consumers can feel safer and more confident maneuvering the vehicle no matter what they are hauling.
Magna provides ADAS solutions to automakers around the world, using a suite of radars, lidars, cameras and domain controllers that serve as the building blocks for future autonomy.
