LX470 also offers a new option: Lexus Night View. It uses near infrared spotlights that capture all objects (not just those that radiate heat). The sensors work in pairs with Charged Coupled Device (a special type of camera). The image is projected onto the lower level of the driver's line of sight through the windshield. Thus, night visibility stretches in 3-4 times more than in normal light.
