Lexus ES gets new side mirrors

  • 20180912 01 04 Lexus rearview mirror cameras will debut in October

Essentially, the side mirrors are cameras, and the live feed is displayed on left and right screens inside the cabin. Digital Outer Mirrors is an extension of the full display mirror (FDM) digital rear view mirror that Lexus and Toyota already offer.

Because the camera pods are smaller than conventional mirrors, Lexus claims they will allow greater outward visibility, as well as reduce wind noise.

Digital screens mounted on the insides of the door provide the driver with a view that can be enhanced at night, and the field of vision can be adjusted as needed.

According to Lexus, they also give the driver an expanded view of the car's surrounding area by augmenting the display during cornering or reversing.

TOKYO, Japan (September 12, 2018)―Lexus announces its introduction of the world' first Digital Outer Mirrors on the new ES.

The technology is called Digital Outer Mirrors, and even though the camera housings replicate the design of traditional mirrors, there's more to this solution than meets the eye.

The system automatically enhances the corresponding area―left, right or behind―when the turn signals are activated, or when the transmission is put into reverse.

Although sleeker than the ES' regular flagpole mirrors, the new camera pods for the digital exterior mirror system are larger and decidedly more conspicuous than the units fitted to nearly every new concept vehicle.
