Cadillac flagship sedan received rearview mirror with streaming video

The new flagship sedan Cadillac CT6 will be equipped with rear-view mirror with high-resolution video function. The mirror has an average size and is located in regular place, but it has a built-in color display with the resolution 1280×240, translating the picture from a digital camera. The camera has a protective glass with a water-repellent coating.

The advantage of such a scheme is a significantly greater (three times!) camera coverage area, compared with a conventional mirror. An additional advantage is the lack of blind spots and insensitivity to the objects inside the car (often it obstructs the overview through an ordinary mirror). Tinted or curtained rear window is not an obstacle for the camera.

In addition, the new item can work as an ordinary reflecting mirror. Switching of the modes is done by pressing the comfortable button on the body. World premiere of the new Cadillac CT6 took place in January 2015 at the motor show in Detroit. At the same time the manufacturer promises to make this car the most technologically advanced in the world.
