Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2015/182457
Kind Code:

Abstract:
 A vehicle exterior observation device is provided with imaging devices (1L, 1R) and an image control means (2). The imaging devices (1L, 1R) are each provided with: an imaging element (13) having an imaging surface; a first image-producing optical system (14t) configured so as to form, on the imaging surface, a first image of a first imaging area (13t) of the vehicle exterior at a first imaging magnification; and a second image-producing optical system (14w) configured so as to form, on the imaging surface, a second image of a second imaging area (13w) of the vehicle exterior at a second imaging magnification different from the first imaging magnification. The image control means (2) is configured so as to detect the first imaging area (13t) and the second imaging area (13w), synthesize the first image and the second image on the basis of the detected first imaging area and second imaging area so that the first image and the second image are displayed in succession, and display the synthesized images on monitors (3L, 3R).
