Cadillac Rearview Mirror Will Show Streaming Video
There are already rearview cameras that display images on your infotainment screen when the car is in reverse, but Cadillac is going a step further by incorporating streaming video into your rearview mirror. The technology is set to appear in their cars at the end of next year. The image you see in the Cadillac rearview mirror will no longer include things like headrests, people sitting in the back seats, the car's roof, or rear pillars. Cadillac says that adding streaming video without the usual obstructions will increase the driver's field of vision by 300 percent. RELATED: See Photos of The 2015 Cadillac Escalade
The image will come from a camera mounted on the rear of the car. Its lens features a hydrophobic coating to keep it clear of dirt and grime. If for some reason a driver wants the traditional mirror view, a toggle can switch between the two versions.
The new rearview mirror will be a 1280 by 240-pixel TFT-LCD display with 171 pixels per inch providing a feed from a specially-designed HD camera. Not only does it have that hydrophobic coating, but it's also been designed to enhance rear view lane width and provide a better image in low-light situations. The 2016 Cadillac CT6 will be the first vehicle to sport this new rearview mirror.
