Apart from the most upgraded and convenience enhancing features of present day car systems, the reverse parking cameras also solidify the safety line of vehicles. Reverse guiding cameras are usually mounted over the rear bumper or over the tailgates. These are usually angled on a downward side that permits the driver to have a good view of what’s going on over the rear end of the car. The main purpose of these cameras is to let the driver know about those obstacles behind the car that are not usually in view. Car reverse cameras are known to have either fish eye lens or wide angle lens that yields a slightly distorted but a stretched view of vehicle’s surroundings.
