So our BR-PST01-B is equipped with a RVC16 IP69K heavy-duty reversing camera. This camera is equipped with 20 night vision lamp beads, weatherproof and shockproof, and is designed for all-weather environments. Its existence can See everything at the rear of the car, pedestrians, and potholes, cliffs, steep slopes, etc. that cannot be detected by radar. It greatly enhances the safety of the vehicle and improves the confidence of the driver.”
