Area View

Area View supplies live images from around the car into the cockpit. These enable the driver to view his immediate surroundings. The system offers a variety of perspectives and views to provide the driver with optimum assistance in any traffic situation.

A total of four cameras provide the reassuring all-round view. And with the 180° wide-angle lenses at the front and rear, the driver’s field of vision is even extended by the areas 90° to the left and right of the vehicle's foremost and rearmost points. So it is literally possible to see around corners. The system assists the driver in difficult manoeuvres such as when coupling up and reversing a trailer or when driving off-road. Or when merging into traffic in awkward situations.

The images from the cameras are processed digitally and shown in real time in the radio or radio/navigation system display.
