Hyundai’s 360 Car Cam

A while back (Oct 27, 2009), I wondered why cars didn’t have better sensors and cameras.

I made a sketch of how a 360-degree proximity sensor dash display might look:

I was watching TV last night, and a Hyundai ad came on showing pretty much what I was imagining.

Here’s how theirs looks – it’s more of the “distracting” video version I mentioned than the compact glance version, but points to Hyundai for making it!   Looks like they stitch together video from 4 cameras to get a full surround picture.
