How does 360 Car Camera work?

A 360-degree camera system doesn't work with just one camera. Instead, several video cameras are strategically placed around the vehicle, typically on each bumper (within an emblem, in the grille, or near the trunk release), and on either side (underneath the side mirrors, near the corners of the bumpers). When you shift into reverse, or in some vehicles, press a button, the camera array activates. Software interprets the view coming from each camera and stitches them together in one single image on your infotainment screen. So as to avoid distraction, the cameras turn off once the vehicle is moving at traffic speeds.

Some vehicles can display the view from only one of those cameras. For example, the passenger-side camera can show a closer view of the wheels to avoid scraping on a curb. Or, the front camera can show what's ahead of the hood, like a parking block or off-road obstacles.

Newer 360-degree camera systems take things further. Instead of only providing a top-down or single-side view of the car, they can be adjusted to show different angles of the exterior. It's as if there's a camera on a drone, hovering outside your car, switching to the angle you select. Unfortunately, how this tech works isn't as cool as using flying robots. They simply have more advanced software that combines the views from different cameras into adjustable perspectives, with your vehicle illustrated in the middle.

How does 360-degree Vehicle Monitoring work?

Four cameras are strategically placed around the vehicle to capture an ultra-wide-angle view of each side of the vehicle. These four views are blended and stitched together in an Electronic Control Unit and then displayed to the driver in real-time as a single image on the dash-mounted monitor, the images change automatically according to driving conditions to avoid any driver distraction.

What is the difference between a reverse image system and a 360-degree monitoring system?

A traditional reverse image system only has one camera, usually located in the hidden position above the license plate. It gives you a 120-degree view of the back of the car, it just helps you look behind, and you still need to use the left and right mirrors to reverse, especially in complex parking situations, it can not guarantee the absolute safety of the driver when reversing.

degree Vehicle Monitoring system can be the driver’s third eye, they can see if there are obstacles around the vehicle and know the relative orientation and distance of obstacles. In fact, the 360 system can completely eliminate all blind areas of the vehicle that threaten pedestrian safety, the driver can see clearly the surrounding environment of the car in order to avoid scrapes and dings when parking in tight spaces, it prevents costly repairs caused by low impact collisions.

The model F4-HD Mobile DVR, an AI chip built inside, is an around vehicle monitoring system that eliminates blind spots by giving drivers a real-time 360-degree view around the vehicle.
