What is a Backup Camera?

Most people have heard of rearview cameras by now. Ever since 2015, auto manufacturers have been installing cameras around vehicles to help with traffic alerts, staying in the intended lane, and watching your blind spot. Backup cameras started with larger trucks and eventually became required hardware for all vehicles after 2018. Backup cameras provide a safety measure for drivers when they are in reverse, so they can see pedestrians and other vehicles that might be in the way.

Backup cameras save a lot of drivers from the headache of accidents, but the software has evolved over time. Now backup cameras come with reverse parking guides to help you fit into spots when you're in reverse or ensure that you don't hit anyone while backing up a long distance. There are other driver assistance sensors available too, such as blind spot monitoring and departure lane assist.
