There is a nice story in the Detroit Free Press about how the underbody cameras on the Hummer EV came to be. Quite interesting that a GM engineer had the idea, and built a prototype on his own time and expense to show the "Big Brass". My favorite part is the prototype camera was protected by a pair of safety glasses taped in place. Many may think GM just slapped any camera under the Hummer, but there was quite a bit of development that went into it, and patents issued.

Sorry this is a subscriber article, but if you can find a way access the article it's an interesting read.

I just signed up for 3 months and read the article.... It is a good piece, and nice to see people who do above and beyond on their own time get credit for their work... I wish that more people in the workforce today would have attitudes like that instead of "that's not my job" or "they aren't paying me to do this"....

GM has a lot of enthusiasts working there. The Hummer EV engineering team leaders are mostly off road / performance enthusiasts. This should bode well for the parts selection on the Hummer EV, and with the price range they are not as cost limited as higher production programs like Silverado and Sierra.
