|Suzuki Wagon R camera|
Thursday, March 16, 2017
Nikkei: While Suzuki has been promoting the use of stereo cameras in 2015-2016, the company switched over to a monocular camera with an IR laser in its automatic braking system in the new Wagon R and Swift cars. The reason is said to be a high cost. The stereo camera based system cost was about $670. While it was 3 times cheaper that IR LiDAR system, it's still too expensive for a compact car. The Wagon R system is manufactured by Continental and costs about $525. The lower price was the reason for the design switch.
