Cameras are equipped to areas where side mirrors are usually located and capture views of the vehicle's sides and back, which are shown on monitors set in front of the driver's and front passenger's seats within the cabin. Interestingly, the brand says the digital mirrors are shaped to "resist the accumulation of raindrops and snow".

The Digital Outer Mirrors show what is on the left, right and rear of the auto, displaying the camera's images on a monitor inside the cabin. And all it took was a little tinkering with the two mirrors popping out from the sides-by removing them completely and replacing them with digital cameras. The cameras automatically shift their focus to the appropriate area when the driver activates their turn signals or puts the vehicle in reverse. View areas around the auto can be enhanced manually to give the driver complete peripheral awareness.

- The camera will display the images on a monitor inside the cabin placed at the bottom of the A-pillar. The view of areas around the auto can be manually enhanced by the driver to obtain complete peripheral awareness of the area around the vehicle.

The digital mirrors are smaller than existing sideview mirrors that provide better forward visibility. At this time, the Digital Outer Mirrors will only be available in Japan. And as the cameras cause less drag than mirrors, there's less annoying wind noise too.
