Why use reversing radars with reversing cameras?

Reversing radars add another dimension to reversing cameras – and stops accidents in vehicles.

But, unlike, reversing cameras, which show you what is behind you, a reversing radar makes a noise which gets louder the closer you get to the object.

 Depth perception is a problem with reversing – meaning it’s difficult to tell how close something is. Even with reversing cameras it can be difficult to tell the difference.

But with reversing radars, the audible warning will help you notice when you are too close.

Many vehicles these days have reversing cameras that use rear view mirrors as monitors to let you see what is behind you – as well as being equipped with reversing radars. It really takes the guesswork out of reversing.
