- Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. will introduce the
world's first Around View Monitor, which offers the driver a bird's
eye view of the vehicle and its surroundings in real-time. In Japan,
the Around View Monitor will debut in the new Elgrand, scheduled for
introduction at the end of this month. The technology will also be
offered to the U.S market on the all new Infiniti EX35 scheduled for
launch this December.
The Around View Monitor system sythesizes a bird's eye image of
the vehicle and its surrounding from four ultrawide-angle
(180-degree) high-resolution cameras mounted on the front, sides and
rear of the vehicle. The Around View Monitor is particularly helpful
when parking, enabling the driver to steer easily and precisely into
a parking space.
- The screen displays the view from above on the left, and a front
or rear view on the right. The front and rear views alternates
according to the gear shift. This allows the driver a comprehensive
view of the vehicle and its surrounding environment from all angles.
- The left side-view is offered with the rear view, allowing the
driver to more easily observe both the rear and left-front when
attempting to parallel-park. The driver has the option to choose
between the top view and the left side-view.
- The camera-enabled sensors mounted on all four corners of the
vehicle depict the distance to an obstacle in easy-to-understand
colored graphics, and help warn the driver via a "beeping" alert the
closer the vehicle approaches an fixed obstacle.
