Have you enjoyed having a rearview backup camera in your car? Has your rearview camera saved you from an accident? Nissan recently introduced the Smart rearview mirror at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Nissan hopes to introduce this new piece of technology worldwide in 2015.
The Smart rearview mirror is unlike any other mirror on the market. With the Smart mirror, drivers can change between a regular mirror and a LCD display with the switch of a button. With the LCD display, drivers will get a crisp and clean display of the outside environment. Nissan’s biggest challenge with the mirror was to prohibit drivers from getting an overlapping image. Nissan was able to eliminate an overlapping image by designing a unique LCD monitor and custom mirror.
The goal of the new mirror/monitor function is to give drivers a better sense of their surrounding environments to reduce accidents and increase safety. For example, if you have a taller passenger riding in your backseat, your passenger is likely to be in-view when you use your rearview mirror. The Smart rear view mirror uses a camera mounted to the rear window to prevent visibility issues from a tall passenger or stacked luggage.
