Mirrorless Lexus ES Going On Sale In Japan This October

Mirrorless Lexus ES Going On Sale In Japan This October

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. A new Digital Outer Mirror option will debut on the Lexus ES in the Japanese market this October, and it uses exterior cameras and screens inside the auto to replace the traditional side mirror. The framework has been adopted in July 2016, and Lexus is the first automaker to make use of the ruling in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Tennis umpires 'thoroughly disturbed' by lack of support from WTA
Did any umps ever mass-boycott "bad boy" John McEnroe when he had one of his signature on-court aneurysms over a bad call? They say they are often forced to watch their tone and words in the workplace in ways that men and other women are not.


Here in the US, the technology has yet to be made legal, though vehicles are already being sold with video screens that replace the center rearview mirror. This allows for enhanced views of the area around the vehicle at night and in inclement weather, Lexus says. In addition to providing an expanded view and better visibility at night and in poor weather, these digital systems can help yield better fuel efficiency due to the more aerodynamic design of the camera setup. The camera pods are also shaped to resist the accumulation of raindrops, according to Lexus. At this time, the Digital Outer Mirrors will only be available in Japan.
