What is a 360-Degree Camera?
A 360-degree camera is a technology that projects a view from above your vehicle of it and the surrounding area. That is, the image projected on your vehicle’s display screen is much like one a drone or blimp would capture. Also, a split view image and proximity alert are other features partnering with a 360-degree camera.
Valuable Features of a 360-Degree Camera System
Top-down image: In other words, it’s a bird’s-eye view of your vehicle and several feet in every direction around it.
Split-View screen: A rearview or backup camera only displays the area immediately behind your car when in reverse. The 360 camera includes your vehicle and the surrounding area in every direction. When backing up with a 360 camera, the split-screen displays the rearview image and the surround-view image. This dual-image is particularly useful when parallel parking or pulling into a narrow parking space in a lot or parking garage. It’s invaluable when backing into such a space.
Proximity alert: With a 360-degree camera, you can easily see an object behind you and correct your course. Why is this better with a 360-camera? Even if you already have some form of safety, you may not be able to see the location of that object.
Off-road usefulness: Although 360-degree cameras are beneficial as a safety feature, they also come in handy at other times, like off-roading. To have a clear view of objects and obstacles around the vehicle when off-pavement is a considerable advantage when 4-wheeling.
Larger vehicles need it: Now, here’s the Captain Obvious rule: The larger the car, the more you will find a 360-degree camera helpful.
