The company has achieved this all-time record over the past five years thanks to its firm commitment to technological innovation in the automotive sector, and expects to triple sales by 2028
COOKEVILLE –Ficosa, a top-tier global provider devoted to the research, development, manufacturing and marketing of high-technology vision, safety, connectivity and efficiency systems for the automotive and mobility sectors, has announced that it has manufactured and sold 3 million rear-view cameras worldwide since it began developing this solution in 2014.
The growth of the technological innovations incorporated in vehicles has led the multinational corporation to reach this milestone in its business, a record that itself will be beaten in the coming years, as Ficosa expects to manufacture more than 8 million parking cameras by 2028, based on orders already received from top-tier OEMs (automakers).
“This figure is a huge achievement because it means that 3 million drivers are benefiting from our cutting-edge technology, which makes driving safer and easier, on roads all over the world,” said Alan Montesi, ADAS systems director at Ficosa. “The fact that drivers are more comfortable and protected against accidents encourages us to continue innovating and to play an active role in transforming the automotive sector.”
Rear-vision cameras, which help drivers park, are part of the Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS). When the driver starts the car, the camera on the back is activated and the rear-view images are shown on the central monitor. The system uses mobile overlays to control the turn of the steering wheel, allowing for more precise manoeuvring.
