The 2019 Lexus ES Gets Cameras Instead of Sideview Mirrors, but Only in Japan

Alongside the more streamlined, sleeker look its new Digital Side-View Mirrors provides are a host of neat tech features created to help make the driving experience safer and more convenient. It's not the cleanest execution of the technology we've seen but it offers several advantages over conventional mirrors, according to Lexus. In addition, the view of areas around the auto can be manually enhanced by the driver. View areas around the vehicle can be enhanced manually to give the driver complete peripheral awareness. From its namesake, it replaces the mirrors for small exterior cameras that will provide drivers a clearer view of the vehicle's surroundings. The cameras mounted on the front doors are far smaller and thinner than mirrors, for one thing, which helps improve forward visibility and reduces wind noise at highway speeds. The Japan-market ES will be the first to offer the tech as an option, but we presume it will roll out to other Lexus and Toyota models as well. We're talking here about cameras that replace traditional wing mirrors, and the Lexus is the first mass-production auto to bring that to the market.

Then there are the displays: A pair of 5-inch monitors are attached to the front pillars. Another highlight of the Digital Outer Mirrors over the conventional mirrors is that it is shaped to resist the accumulation of raindrops and snow, leaving the driver's view unaffected.




The system automatically enhances the corresponding area when indicators are activated, or when the transmission is put into reverse.
