Back-Up Collision Intervention System. A number of new vehicles now include backup camera systems. But it's easy to become lulled by the technology—glancing and seeing what you need to see, like the corner of that car, perhaps, but not what's unexpected and in between. Enter Back-Up Collision Intervention, which made its debut in the 2013 Infiniti JX35 (to be renamed the 2014 Infiniti QX60), will with radar and sonar sensors anticipate a potential impact with an object that’s moving or stationary. After a brief warning, the vehicle will brake itself. This is a potential game-changer for reducing parking-lot and driveway accidents with other vehicles—and kids. A similar feature is now also offered in select Cadillac vehicles.
