Lexus ES to debut digital exterior mirrors in Japan

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

Both Audi and Japanese developers continue to lobby for mirrorless cars in the States, so only time will tell whether we'll be seeing new vehicles equipped with those stylish camera stanchions any time soon. The feed from those cameras is then displayed on small, 5-inch monitors inside the cabin that sit at the base of the front pillars.

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. The side mirrors that all cars use today are replaced on the ES with side stalks with video cameras in them.

Digital screens mounted on the insides of the door provide the driver with a view that can be enhanced at night, and the field of vision can be adjusted as needed. By replacing the vehicle's conventional side mirrors with small cameras, side mirrors no longer block the view outside the front windows, resulting in improved visibility.

Also on Friday, Tesla disclosed that its chief of accounting, Dave Morton , was leaving the company only weeks after being hired. He said accomplishing things and being useful to others kept him going, as he urged others to spend less time on social media.

There are other benefits too, including the cameras being able to resist the buildup of raindrops or snow thanks to their design, and better visibility in all conditions. Digital Outer Mirrors is an extension of the full display mirror (FDM) digital rear view mirror that Lexus and Toyota already offer.

The system automatically enhances the corresponding area - left, right or behind - when the turn signals are activated, or when the transmission is put into reverse.
