A video system (30) including an illuminator (26) and a silicon detector (34) which provides operators of motor vehicles (20) with an enhanced display of the vehicle's operating environment (24 and 28). The illuminator (26) provides a source of short wavelength infrared energy. A single silicon detector (34) processes electromagnetic signals in the short wavelength infrared spectrum and selected color signals in the visible light spectrum. A visual display (60) of the operating environment comprising the infrared image with enhancements from selected por...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A video system which provides an operator of a vehicle with an enhanced visual display of selected portions of the vehicle's surrounding environment comprising:an illuminator to project short wavelength infrared energy;a single silicon detector for both short wavelength infrared and visible colored light electromagnetic radiation to generate both short wavelength infrared signals and visible colored light signals;a signal processing circuit to produce electrical signals corresponding to the detected electromagnetic radiation a...
