Lexus ES becomes the first production car to replace outside mirrors with a camera

Lexus ES becomes the first production car to replace outside mirrors with a camera

-    Called the Digital Outer Mirror, the camera will debut in ES from next month.

-    The camera will display the images on a monitor inside the cabin placed at the bottom of the A-pillar.

-    Initially will be available only in Japan but expected to be available across the world soon.

Lexus has taken the technological leap and introduced a camera which replaces the outside rear-view mirror. The technology is called the Digital Outer Mirror and will roll-out in the new-gen ES sedan starting October. 

The Digital Outer Mirrors displays what is on the left, right and rear of the car on a monitor inside the cabin that is stacked below the A-pillar. Lexus claims that they provide better views of the car’s surrounding even at night and in inclement weather. Moreover, the cameras offer an expanded view of the surrounding by augmenting the display area during turns or when backing up. 

The absence of large mirrors also reduces the wind noise and provides reduces blind spots according to the Japanese carmaker. Another highlight of the Digital Outer Mirrors over the conventional mirrors is that it is shaped to resist the accumulation of raindrops and snow, leaving the driver's view unaffected.

The digital mirrors will go on sale in late October, however, it will only be available in the Japanese market initially. But Lexus would surely feature it in the international markets as well pretty soon. The upcoming Audi E-Tron Quattro electric crossover will also feature similar digital camera which will replace the conventional ORVMs.
