DETROIT, Mich. (DetroitNews.com)—Cadillac will debut high-resolution video streaming in the rearview mirror, to expand visibility for drivers. It will be available next year on the CT6 flagship sedan.
General Motors Co. said the streaming mirror improves field of vision about four times that of a traditional rearview mirror. The technology — under development since 2011 and believed to be a first in an automaker application — will remove obstructions in a driver’s field of vision, including rear seat passengers, headrests, the roof and rear pillars.
“The closest comparison to this kind of rear vision would be driving a convertible with the top down,” Travis Hester, Cadillac CT6 executive chief engineer, said in a statement.
