DETROIT – Raz Peleg is looking for the right amount of steam in downtown Detroit.

He’s trying to show what image a special camera small enough to fit in the palm of a hand and made by an Israeli startup can capture when it’s mounted on a car, in this case a white Chevy Malibu.

The person he’s sent down the street for this recent demonstration glows luminously on a laptop screen inside the car. It’s the same with other bystanders nearby, including a man in the back of a box truck.

The steam, clearly visible through the car’s windows, billows up from the street, but the humans always stand out, which is the point. Drivers in cars equipped with the cameras won’t see these images, but they would inform the safety technology in the vehicles, including possibly a U.S. pickup manufacturer in the coming years.
