Spanish firm invents 'interior' rear-view mirror with panoramic vision
19 October 2015 @ 22:06

 SPANISH company has invented a rear-view mirror with no blind spots for safer and more comfortable driving and reversing.

The mirror, powered electronically using wide-angled lenses and high-range dynamic 1.3-pixel sensors, is 'another step towards self-driving cars' – something the motor industry believes

will become a reality in the not-too-distant future.

It does not resemble an exterior mirror like those featured on existing cars, but comprises two cameras built into the bodywork which send moving pictures to two high-resolution screens inside the vehicle using what is known as an Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS).

This includes the ability to detect other traffic and advise the driver about cars in the vicinity, says systems architect Víctor Iglesias of the company Ficosa.
