The Digital Sideview mirrors will be first used in a Lexus model next year with the launch of the 2019 Lexus ES.

Lexus, a Toyota-owned car brand, has just steered towards replacing the traditional side mirrors for a couple of digital ones. This is a move carried out to enhance the visibility and safety during the adverse weather.

The Digital Sideview cameras are to steer clear off the influences of wind, mud, sand, etc.

With the Digital Sideview cameras outside, the live footage of the surroundings will be displayed on 5-inch screens in the cabin, so the wind, mud, or sand, etc won’t be a nuisance anymore.

The Digital Sideview mirrors will be first used in a Lexus model next year when the 2019 Lexus ES sedan is released in Japan and only Japan.

Toyota claims the international regulations are the things that halt their advance in making Digital Side-View mirrors available in other countries besides its home country.

On the Digital Sideview mirrors, its parent company Toyota said:

"For starters, the cameras capture a clearer view to the right, left and rear of the vehicle, especially at night and in bad weather. The system also automatically enhances areas that need special attention, such as the direction a vehicle is turning"
