Both the systems depend on infrared statistics.

Night vision systems are still found in most of the luxury vehicles. General Motors was the first company to introduce Night Vision System.

Toyota, Mercedes offer active systems. Other OEM’s, such as BMW, Audi and Honda, offer passive options. Mercedes uses NIR technology and shows clearer picture in the dark.
