"Aftermarket driver safety needs meaningful innovation to help with the everyday tasks of avoiding accidents and having a safeguard of video evidence in the event there is an accident," stated Wonin Baek, CEO and President of KSS-ImageNEXT. "The North American drivers can now have the benefits of 360º surround view and blind spot cameras with an integrated in-vehicle DVR at an affordable price. omniDRIVE delivers this value with added bonus of being a connected safety product using a driver existing smartphone," added Mr. Baek.

SVM is a standard ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) application enabling the driver to see a 360-degree view around the car using 4 cameras mounted in the front, rear, and both sides of the vehicle.

SVM eliminates blind spots and is considered the ideal solution for safe slow speed maneuvering in tight driving conditions, urban congestion and parking lots.
