We know this feeling all too well: your car is packed so full of cargo or passengers, your rear view mirror is rendered useless. This can make driving conditions a little more precarious, especially if you have to reverse. Nissan has come up with a simple, yet ingenious solution for this common problem, the Smart Rear View Mirror.

Nissan’s Smart Rear View Mirror works with a rear view camera attached to the back window. The driver can then toggle between the standard mirror and the camera view, which is aligned precisely to display what you normally see in the mirror, minus the obstructions.

Japan will be the first country to get this new technology which is expected to be ready sometime next year. And, it should make its way to our shores sometime in the near future as well.

We love that Nissan is always looking for ways to improve the driving experience for its customers. The carmaker has established a reputation for innovation, and Nissan isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
