The design of reversing cameras

Posted on 16th Mar, 2011 by Jonathan Peach

Reversing cameras are designed for attaching to the rear of a vehicle to assist backing up.

The design of the reversing camera is very distinct because the image is flipped horizontally to project a mirror image. This is necessary to give the driver the perception of a mirror.

Typically, either a wide angle or fish eye lens, the lens has the ability to see faraway objects and allows the reversing cameras an uninterrupted horizontal path.

Reversing cameras are positioned so they are pointing downwards to view objects on the ground.
