NISSAN TO INTRODUCE WORLD'S FIRST AROUND VIEW MONITOR
TOKYO (Oct. 12, 2007) -- 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.
