VOXX Electronics (Audiovox) has begun shipping new backup cameras while confirming that more driver safety products are “on the way” including “lane departure, blind spot detection and forward crash warning systems,” said VOXX Electronics President Tom Malone.
Additionally, new parking sensors and an event camera system will be released shortly.
The market for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is expected to grow by about 23 percent (CAGR) over the next two years. Many of these safety systems will be offered not only in lower cost cars but as add-0n aftermarket systems, said the company, citing research.
