It might seem counterintuitive, but light can be both a wave and a particle at the same time. This has some pretty weird consequences – a ‘particle’ of light can be in two places at once, going through two slits at the same time and it can even interfere with itself. But this duality – as both a wave and a particle – is essential for the operation of some technology that we almost take for granted. Like the digital cameras you find in everything from smartphones to laptops. They include a lens that works with light as a wave, refracting light just so, and a charge-coupled device (CCD) which works with light as a particle. It’s fancy stuff, and the mathematics and physics that went into the discovery and the development of the theories is highly intricate.
But you don’t need to know anything about the science to make use of a camera, which is good because a camera has some pretty basic application. From holiday snaps to selfies, cameras are a fully integrated part of our everyday life. And that extends to driving – or at least it should.
The reversing camera provides a huge boost to safety when backing out of a narrow driveway or onto a busy road. People are content to use mirrors, but rear view mirrors have huge blind spots. If you really want coverage from a variety of angles, a rear vision camera is a much safer option.
They’re also versatile and suit larger vehicles. If you drive a truck or motor home, Safety Dave offers cameras for these vehicles, and we’ll outfit you with a caravan reversing camera if you need one too.
