ImmerVision, the inventor of the 360-degree panomorph lens and worldwide
expert in immersive optical technology, has announced that Visteon’s
latest concept vehicle, the e-Bee, incorporates cutting-edge panomorph
technology to eliminate rear-view blind spots. With ImmerVision Enables®
onboard, the e-Bee was displayed at ELECTRONICA in Munich from November
13-16, and showcased panoramic imaging applications of the future.
In 2014, the USA will be the first country to establish the obligatory
integration of rear-view camera systems in every new vehicle sold in
America. Offering more than a simple rear camera, the e-Bee leverages
the panomorph technology to expand visibility with a 182 by 360 degree
field-of-view, heighten optical performance, and support more powerful
advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Wide-angle views and
increased resolution offered by the 360-degree panomorph solution will
be cornerstones of quality rear-view camera applications that are to
follow from the newly instated law.
“Representing Visteon’s vision of automotive mobility in the year 2020,
we collaborate with industry leading partners on the integration of
innovative technologies, such as the panomorph lens, to enhance the
driving experience of the e-Bee”, said Tim Yerdon, global director of
“The integration of the panomorph technology in Visteon’s latest vehicle
concept will completely change how drivers perceive and interact with
their environment,” says Alessandro Gasparini, the ImmerVision Chief
Commercial Officer. “Forward-thinking car manufacturers and technology
providers like Visteon will gain tremendous marketable value in using
this 360-degree standard to develop unique applications.”
