By installing small exterior cameras on the front doors, Lexus vehicles will provide its drivers with a clearer view of the vehicle's surrounding area. The cameras also are shaped so that they won't be obscured by rain or snow.
It works by transmitting live video feed onto 5-inch display monitors that are placed near the A-pillars of the cabin.
Alongside the more streamlined, sleeker look its new Digital Side-View Mirrors provides are a host of neat tech features created to help make the driving experience safer and more convenient. In addition, the view of areas around the vehicle can be manually enhanced by the driver.
The "Digital Outer Mirror" system, which Lexus claims is a world first on a production auto, shows feeds from two exterior cameras on a pair of 5.0-inch screens mounted at the base of the front pillars. Brightness will also be automatically adjusted to increase visibility at night and in the bad weather, improving security. Digital Outer Mirrors is an extension of the full display mirror (FDM) digital rear view mirror that Lexus and Toyota already offer.
