Pearl Announces RearVision: World’s Most Advanced Automotive Backup Camera

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pearl Automation Inc. (Pearl), founded on the belief that all drivers

should have access to the latest car features, today announces

RearVision, the advanced backup camera and alert system that installs in

minutes. RearVision enables a super-wide view of the area behind your

vehicle in both day and night — with high-definition video streamed

wirelessly to your phone — and is the first to provide feature

enhancements through automatic updates. RearVision is available for

preorder today at pearlauto.com.

“You shouldn’t have to buy a new car to get new car features, especially

as cars are expected to last up to 20 years,” said Bryson Gardner,

co-founder and CEO of Pearl. “Rather than wait for the promise of the

autonomous vehicle, we are further developing many of those underlying

technologies to help the human driver today. And these features learn

and improve over time through automatic updates, just as you’ve come to

expect with the experience on your phone.”

Typically, automotive technology can take 40 or more years to reach wide

scale adoption (source: HLDI, 2012). The first backup camera appeared in

a production car 25 years ago, yet fewer than one in four vehicles in

the US have them today (source: CEA, 2015). Backup cameras are widely

recognized as one of the most important safety and convenience features,

and the National

Highway Traffic Safety Administration has mandated that backup

cameras become standard starting with all model-year 2019 cars.
