The firm's technology is based on the use of optical vision systems with motion detection algorithms, unlike many other systems which use a combination of visual detection, radar, and laser scanning. The firm's vehicle detection algorithms recognize motorised vehicles such as cars, motorcycles and trucks, in day and night time conditions. The firm's version performs its vehicle detection based functions using a single camera mounted in the rear view mirror, unlike the usual approach of using radars, laser scanners or in some cases stereo-cameras. In 2011 the firm introduced the world's first OEM production of vision-only forward collision warning system on multiple BMW, GM and Opel vehicles.
