HAUPPAUGE, NY (05.05.2014) – VOXX Electronics Corporation (VEC) announced that it has begun shipping the newly-expanded Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) product line that the Company unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
These Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are designed to provide essential information and automate complex or repetitive tasks, leading to an overall increase in driver situational awareness and safety. The new line adds camera technologies and rear observation systems to the company’s existing ADAS line. New parking sensors and an event camera system will be available shortly.
With the push from government for greater on-the-road safety and ever-increasing interest from automakers and consumers to have innovative safety features, the ADAS market is considered one of the fastest growing segments in automotive electronics. According to recent industry reports, the global ADAS market will grow at a CAGR of 22.59 percent over the next 2 years. And among the major trends the market is seeing is the increasing deployment of ADAS in lower-cost cars and as add-on aftermarket systems.
“The global market for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems has grown significantly in recent years as consumers become more aware of driver safety products,” said Tom Malone, President of VOXX Electronics Corporation. “We were one of the first companies in the aftermarket to recognize the need to provide safety accessories as part of our product offerings and this year we have expanded those offerings to include some more sophisticated devices with more new categories like event recorders, lane departure, blind spot detection and forward crash warning systems on the way.”
VOXX’s latest Multi-view Backup (CAM430MV) and Import Style Backup Cameras (CAM345) provide greater versatility and more cutting-edge capabilities at a lower price than virtually any competitor in the market. The CAM430MV features a selectable down, behind, wide, and split corner view as well as a digital 190-degree view behind the vehicle. Digital image correction translates into a crisp, clear and straight picture from all angles.
