BMW Asks Who Needs Mirrors When You Can Have Cameras?…

If BMW’s i8 2016 concept car is anything to go with then it looks like we could be saying “Auf Wiedersehen” to our beloved vehicle wing and rear view mirrors. It seems that a couple of discreetly placed cameras on each side of the vehicle along with one on the back window could be used to form a complete display. This ‘complete picture’ mirror would appear where a current standard rear view mirror is, and include the difficult to see blind spot angles. Although it’s thought that this new system maybe a couple of years away from being introduced in mass production, it seems more a question of when not if.
