Nissan to unveil Smart rearview mirror at 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Anita Panait, on March 3, 2014

Nissan Motor will unveil at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show its Smart rearview mirror, which it touts as the first LCD monitor in the world that does not only allow clear rearward visibility under various conditions, but also gives drivers the ability to switch between the LCD monitor and the traditional rearview mirror. 

The Smart rearview mirror is housed within the structure of the rearview mirror. It employs a high-resolution camera mounted on the vehicle rear, providing the driver with a clear unobstructed view of the rear flanks as well as giving him the ability to check blind spots and other traffic conditions. The camera projects a clear image onto the LCD monitor to provide the driver with a better view of the rear.

The Smart rearview mirror also comes with a switch function that is operated by a control located at the bottom of the mirror. Using this switch, driver could effortlessly view the rear flank either through the traditional rearview mirror or through the LCD display.

The Smart rearview mirror boasts of being able to provide a wider and clearer view compared to a standard mirror. The LCD monitor, meanwhile, provides unobstructed images of the rear flanks, disregarding traditional obstructions like C-pillars.

This helps a driver scope the traffic conditions within the area in a more efficient manner. While rearward visibility from conventional rearview mirrors can be obstructed by tall rear seat passengers or by stacked luggage in the rear compartment, the Smart rearview mirror renders those obstructions a thing of the past.
