Magna International Inc. has announced that it is supplying camera-based driver assistance systems and all-wheel-drive components in the new Maserati Levante, as the traditional Italian sports brand enters into the luxury SUV segment for the first time.
Magna’s EYERIS electronic vision system includes a 360-degree surround view system. The front and side cameras are located in the radiator grill and outside mirrors, while the rear view camera is positioned above the rear registration plate. Unlike the previous analog generation, the electronic control for the surround system operates based on digital video data from the cameras.
The 8.4-inch touchscreen monitor in the front console of the vehicle offers two options for high-resolution image display: a split screen mode offering the front and rear perspective (combined with a front and rear ultrasound parking assistant), or a bird’s eye view with overlapping dynamic and static Guidance Lines and integrated ‘door open’ warning display.
Other electronic features on board the SUV include a lane-departure warning assistant, high-beam assistant and camera-based object detection.
