Reversing cameras – what are they?

Posted on 14th Feb, 2011 by Jonathan Peach

Reversing cameras are  video camera, specifically for the rear of a vehicle. Sometimes they are called rear view cameras, they detect obstacles or people which mirrors cannot detect.

Reversing cameras are very different from other cameras. The driver of the car and the camera face opposite directions so the image needs to flip horizontally so that you see what your car’s mirrors would see.
