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.
