Being aware of what is happening behind the car makes for safer driving. However, the visibility offered by a car’s rearview mirror has inherent limitations. The view is often obstructed by passengers in the rear or reduced due to nighttime conditions or bad weather, making it difficult for the driver to see the rearview.
Nissan has developed a rearview mirror with a built-in LCD monitor displaying images from a camera mounted on the rear of the vehicle. This Intelligent Rearview Mirror allows the driver the ability to switch between the LCD monitor and the standard rearview mirror, depending on the driver’s preference.
The driver is able to see traffic conditions behind the car through the clear video imagery, as well as use the rearview mirror to check on passengers and pets in the rear. This helps make for a safer and more comfortable driving experience.
A camera is attached to the rear of the vehicle and displays images on a LCD monitor built into the rearview mirror. Imagery from the camera offers clear visibility of a wide area. Drivers use a switch at the bottom of the mirror to alternate between the monitor and the mirror.
