Nissan launches blind spot eliminator

Nissan is developing a system that will eliminate blind spots from around the vehicle with a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding area displayed on a central monitor.

Rear view cameras are now standard across the Nissan range. But there’s a second blind spot along both sides of the car. Nissan is testing front mounted cameras too. The driver will see an image on the dashboard-mounted monitor as if he or she were looking down onto the car. It also shows up everything around it.

Cameras mounted at the front and rear and on both sides take pictures of the surrounding road surface, which are synthesized by an image processing technique into one view that is shown on a central display.

Although there is no confirmed release date for this technology or what vehicle it will be fitted to. Nissan stated that is luxury arm, Infiniti is due to arrive in Europe in 2008, which could be a possible candidate for the technology.
