Car  |  Accessories
The Opel Eye Camera system is a Traffic Sign Recognition and Lane Departure Warning system available early next year in new model opel vauxhall insignia cars, which scans the road ahead at 30 frames per second to read road signs and tell you when you're wandering from your lane.

Depending on light conditions, the system begins to recognize and repeatedly read signs at 100 meters. The Opel Eye camera also checks whether drivers stay in their chosen lane on the highway. This helps prevent a dangerous situation, such as a driver falling asleep at the wheel. Lane Departure Warning can be switched on or off via a button. When active, it warns the driver with a gong sound and a blinking signal on the instrument panel.
