Cadillac Adds Streaming Video to Enhance Driver Vision and Safety
Display eliminates visible obstructions, increases rearward prophesy by 300 percent
DETROIT (Friday, Dec 19, 2014) – Cadillac late subsequent year will supplement high-resolution streaming video to a duty of a normal rearview mirror, stealing obstructions of passengers, headrests and a vehicle’s roof and back pillars.
The streaming video counterpart improves margin of prophesy by an estimated 300 percent, or roughly 4 times larger than a customary rearview mirror.
“The closest comparison to this kind of back prophesy would be pushing a automobile with a tip down,” pronounced Travis Hester, Cadillac CT6 executive arch engineer.
“In further to a increasing margin of view, a record eliminates any back seat, back post or newcomer obstructions, permitting a motorist an unfettered perspective of a lanes behind and normal blind-spots,” Hester said.
Thanks to a high energetic range, a camera’s video feed reduces glisten and allows a crisper picture in low-light situations, contra a normal potion electrochromatic, or auto-dimming, rearview mirror. The in-mirror arrangement is an industry-leading 1280 by 240-pixel TFT-LCD arrangement with 171 pixels per inch, total with a HD camera designed privately to raise back perspective line breadth and maximize low-light situations.
A water-shedding violent cloaking is practical to a camera to keep it purify to say prominence regardless of a pushing conditions.
Researchers and engineers operative on this Cadillac creation have been awarded 10 patents – one for a streaming video counterpart and 9 for video processing. The patents cover innovations in a far-reaching margin of perspective camera picture calibration, de-warping, glisten rebate and camera hardware design.
Drivers can invalidate a mirror’s video streaming function; flipping a toggle on a underside of a counterpart will return it to a normal electrochromatic rearview mirror.
“The streaming video is a poignant encouragement for a oppulance patron meddlesome in eloquent technology,” Hester said.
The record will entrance on a 2016 Cadillac CT6.
