Cadillac CT6 to Eliminate Blind Spots with Video Streaming Rearview Mirror

December 27, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Rear-view mirrors are becoming high-tech in Cadillac CT6, with the posh manufacturers featuring a rear-view streaming mirror in it.

Slated for release towards the end of next year, the CT6 flagship sedan will be the first of Cadillac to feature the new innovation.

Unlike contemporary rear-view mirrors or rear video streaming features, Cadillac offers some sound innovations which could put it ahead in the race.


The rear-view video in Cadillac will be offering  a wide angle view, unlike the fish-eye video in much of the similar rear views, and will also eliminate the rear-view rider, headrest and other rear obstacles, bringing a never-before view of the rear side for drivers.

Aiding the mirror is the HD camera fitted in the rear with a hydrophobic coating, which wipes out the effects of dust, dirt and water on the camera.

The mirror will be featuring a display of 1280×240 pixels and will expand the traditional rear-view vision by around 300%, claims the manufacturers. That’s like driving in a convertible with open hoods, says chief executive engineer Travis Hester.

Cadillac has retained the auto-dimming feature of its traditional mirrors in the upcoming model. A tap on the toggle button beneath your mirror will let you switch to the conventional rear-view vision that features electro-chromatic self-dimming rear-view vision.

CT6 will make its debut at the New York Auto Show in 2015 and go on sales by the end of next year. The price will be disclosed only a few weeks before it rolls out to the world.
