Mirrorless vehicles have been proposed by stylists for some time now, but Lexus is the first to put the technology into a production auto.

The "Digital Outer Mirror" system, which Lexus claims is a world first on a production auto, shows feeds from two exterior cameras on a pair of 5.0-inch screens mounted at the base of the front pillars.

By installing small exterior cameras on the front doors, Lexus vehicles will provide its drivers with a clearer view of the vehicle's surrounding area. In addition, the view of areas around the auto can be manually enhanced by the driver.

In Japanese markets, the 2019 Lexus ES will replace the traditional side mirrors with a new digital camera system. The views on the five-inch monitors located at the base of the A pillars can be manually enhanced by the driver.

Lexus claims that the system results not only in improved visibility, but also in reduced wind noise. The image visible on the two five-inch screens at the base of each A-pillar can be enhanced to show greater detail and a broader view, either manually by the driver or automatically when the turn signals are activated or the vehicle is shifted into reverse.

The Yomiuri ShimbunToyota Motor Corp. has announced that it would install digital outer mirrors in place of sideview mirrors in its Lexus brand's new ES model to be released in late October.
