Las Vegas - The limited sight line of your car's rear-view mirror may be a thing of the past.
BMW showed off its i8 electric car's mirrorless system.
Images from three cameras are combined on a display that replaces the interior mirror, giving the driver larger viewing angles and eliminating blind spots.
How it works
The system analyzes the images and alerts drivers to potential hazards with yellow warning icons. The replacement mirror also has lines showing the car's trajectory when parking.
The i3 electric car has a roof-mounted camera replacing its mirror, giving a much wider angle of view.
BMW also introduced gesture controls for its 7 Series that controls infotainment and communication features without touching a screen.
