This benefits from Clarion’s patented image processing technology which enables the system to deliver a high definition overhead image display by accurately stitching, error-correcting and processing multiple images supplied by the vehicle’s front, rear and side cameras. The advanced system is capable of utilizing up to 21 different patterns. Clarion and Porsche believe that this system will significantly contribute to the overall safety of the vehicle and its occupants by eliminating blind spots and reducing the unexpected when maneuvering the vehicle, notably lowering stress levels and providing for a more confident and enjoyable drive.
In addition to this camera system, Porsche has also adopted a Clarion navigation system for the Panamera range in the Japanese market which views comprehensive multi-pattern onboard camera systems as a desirable option in luxury vehicles. Coupled with this camera system, the Clarion supplied touch panel navigation unit will accommodate 12 patterns, 3 patterns each for rear, front and two side cameras.
