With summer mere weeks away, children are gearing up for some well-deserved fun in the sun. As kids begin exchanging their backpacks for bike helmets, drivers ought to be especially mindful of their surroundings. In the hopes of keeping the roads safer all year round, Chevrolet has introduced an exciting new technology.

What is Chevrolet Surround Vision?

Crafted in 2017, Chevy Surround Vision technology aims to keep pedestrians out of harm’s way. This innovative feature uses four 360-degree cameras to provide aerial and peripheral views to the driver. Said cameras are located underneath the license plate, on the grille, and on the two side mirrors. This feature is particularly handy when backing up, pulling into the driveway, and performing other low-speed maneuvers.

 

How does Surround Vision Work?

Rondell Burge, Chevrolet researcher of driver behavior, states that Surround Vision offers a birds-eye view. What’s more, Burge’s research shows that “the majority of incidents are caused by drivers being unaware of their surroundings.” Chevrolet is keen to correct this problem and restore safety on the roads and sidewalks. When employed, the Surround Vision technology displays on the driver’s automotive head unit and serves as their all-seeing eyes.

As Chevy continues to expand on their products, they’re placing safety at the forefront of their operations. Burge reveals that Surround Vision is only “one of dozens of safety features that Chevy provides.” Some Chevy models that enjoy this revolutionary component include the 2018 Traverse, Equinox, and Bolt EV.
