Valeo have won a 2020 PACE Award for their XtraVue Trailer, the world’s first system enabling drivers to see through the trailer or camper they are towing. This innovative driving assistance technology makes towing objects simpler and safer for drivers.
Using cameras and software developed by Valeo, XtraVue combines the data recorded by the vehicle and trailer cameras into a single, homogenous image. The image is displayed on screen in front of the driver, enabling them to see what’s going on behind their vehicle as if they could see right through the trailer or camper. Driving and manœuvring becomes easier than ever, whatever the size of the vehicle being towed. Drivers can change lanes, reverse, and park with confidence they’re not about to hit something or someone.
