Intelligent Around View Monitor (i-AVM) uses four cameras installed around the TERRA to give you a 360-degree top view
around the vehicle to assist you with parking… or manoeuvring around tight spots especially when you are going off-road
on rough terrains, while Moving Object Detection (MOD) used the four cameras to detect moving objects around the vehicle
when it is in park or slowly manoeuvring; the system then alerts the driver both visually and audibly, plus many more features.
