No, this isn't a post about how good Nissan's fortunes have been of late, but rather a new camera system being developed by the company that would eliminate all blind spots around a vehicle. Rear-mounted cameras are fast becoming commonplace and Nissan itself already employs side-mounted cameras on its Presage in Japan. This new system adds a fourth camera and an image processing technique to create a synthesized aerial image of a vehicle and its surroundings.

Though all the press has focused on how this system would aid in parking, just think how great it would be on the highway where you could relive playing Spy Hunter in your own car! Pardon me, I have to go work on a homemade device that generates oil slicks at speed…

      Or maybe people should learn the dimensions of their vehicle and pay attention to the traffic around them, instead of a screen inside their coccoon...guess I'm turning into a hopeless Luddite.

      Careful, driving into open semis is not as easy as it looks in the game- or quite as well appreciated!

      If you adjust your mirrors so there's no duplication from one mirror to another, you can pretty much eliminate your blind spots now. No pricey cameras and tacky video screens on your dash.
