— Dual camera unit comprising both thermal camera and CCD camera in same housing with horizontal field of view 40 degrees-65 degrees.

— Displays, cables and switchboxes.
Since the vehicle camera system shall be able to Work on different vehicles with different equipment, and there are both old and new vehicles, the system shall be able to Work as a stand-alone system.
