The 360° wrap-around view system is a technology that combines images from multiple cameras installed on a vehicle on a 3D model, visually assisting the driver to monitor the vehicle’s perimeter.
Conventional technologies project images from cameras onto a 2D plane, allowing only a top-down bird's eyes view to be displayed, therefore making it difficult to recognize the surrounding vehicles and pedestrians. The 360° wrap-around view system projects images onto a 3D hemispherical surface, which allows the driver to change the field of view freely, enabling them to recognize vehicles and pedestrians by taking a close-up of the spot that they want to see from any desired position and angle.
It is also possible to eliminate blind spots at the sides and rear of a vehicle by providing combined images from three cameras installed at the sides and rear of the vehicle as electronic mirror images by using the stitching technology of the 360° wrap-around view system. Our 360° wrap-around view system has been used by automakers since 2010.
