Drivers often have a limited view of objects behind the vehicle when a vehicle is being reversed. This can result in advertent collisions resulting in personal injury to unseen individuals, such as small children playing on driveways, or in damage to the vehicle from striking short posts or walls in parking lots. A backup warning system provides an alert to the vehicle driver if the presence of an unseen object behind their vehicle is detected.
