Audi is bringing up Virtual Exterior Mirrors to replace the time-tested Outside rear view mirrors in its electric car aka Audi e-tron.
This setup has two parts which include a High dynamic camera and a heated glass cover so that the lens doesn’t become hazy.
Why in this freaking world would anyone need to look at a screen besides the side passenger in order to look back on the other side of the car? And honestly, this thing is more prone to damage than an ordinary mirror. An average Joe like me would take time to adjust to the natural instinct of mistaking the car to be coming from the side rather than from the back. Every time you want to look back while driving, you need to move your head to look at the door, while ideally we just move our eyes.
