Night View Assist Plus
Enhanced night-time visibility.
Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive
People or animals on the road at night often represent a source of danger for drivers. Night View Assist Plus can recognise them within a range of up to 160 m in front of the vehicle.
Should the thermal imaging camera recognise pedestrians or large animals such as deer in the road ahead, the speedometer in the instrument cluster display will automatically switch to a bright night vision image. People and animals are marked in colour in this image, therefore making them clearly visible.
Night View Assist Plus with spotlight function
Changes may have been made since these images and films were produced.
The spotlight function starts working when the speed reaches 45 km/h, when the automatic lighting functions and the NIGHT VIEW ASSIST PLUS are activated. An additional aperture in the projection module of a front headlamp enables the spotlight function’s light to be distributed selectively. Anyone on or next to the road up to 80 m ahead will be detected and flashed up.
The complex software controlling the NIGHT VIEW ASSIST PLUS directs the spotlight onto persons that have been detected.The software can also identify vehicles ahead or oncoming traffic and prevent them from being dazzled by the flashing of the spotlight function. When driving at approx. 70 km/h, on average, test drivers detected a pedestrian 25 metres or 1.3 seconds earlier than without a spotlight function. Those seconds can make a huge difference.
