Would you dare drive a car relying solely on its night vision technology? That's what the folks over at MotorTrend did. They made use of BMW X5's night vision system with pedestrian and animal detection using a FLIR heat detection camera instead of infrared beams.

It projects a real-time thermal image of the road ahead of the car's display and emits warning sounds when pedestrians or animals are detected.

MotorTrend's Justin Bell took the car for a 16.1 kim drive across LA relying exclusively on the night vision technology. The front windshield was completely blacked out.
