Title:
BACKWARD TRAVEL SUPPORT SYSTEM
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2000158975
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide a backward travel support system allowing a safe and accurate backward drive in the same posture as a forward travel without turning a driver's eyes backward.

This backward travel support system has an electronic processing unit. The electronic processing unit has a function for electronically reversing a video image picked up by a backward camera provided in a rear part of an automobile 10 with respect to a vertical axis 3 as a reference. A right curve 12 in a backward travel area is reversed right and left in its image and is displayed as a left curve 17b on a display 2b. This system is extremely effective in an automobile not capable of securing a sufficient backward visibility, driving onto a narrow space, or a driver having a physical handicap.
