Backup camera.

icon/user/avatar/20 Created with Sketch. By Viktor Kalutsky

“A backup camera (also known as a rear-view camera, reversing camera)” one of the most used features by the American community, also one of the most common features pre-built on most of the vehicles on the road today. This camera is designed specifically to be attached to the rear of the vehicle and a screen on the interior of the vehicle primarily used to aid the vehicle and eliminate rear blind spots. Specifically, this feature was designed to avoid backup collisions. In 2012 backup cameras were available on almost half of the models released that year, then later on adapted by many manufacturers, by May of 2018 all the new vehicle models will come standard with backup cameras for safety reasons.

The design of a backup camera works flips the image horizontally so the output of the image is like a mirror. This is necessary because drivers face opposite directions when backing up on a vehicle, without the flip everything would be wise Versa. Typically a backup camera uses a wide-angle fisheye lens to maximize the view of what's behind you and also to see as far as you can behind you. Mostly the camera is pointed toward the ground to have you avoid any rocks or barriers that are not visible through the mirror.


Here at BCR automotive most of our vehicles come with backup cameras if not we will be more than happy to get you to somebody who can install it.
