Lincoln unveils new 360-degree camera technology

DUBAI, January 13, 2016

Lincoln, a luxury automotive brand of Ford Motor Company, has unveiled the 360-degree camera technology in the all-new MKX crossover.
 
The feature is a first-in-class for the medium premium utility segment, said a statement.
 
In addition to the 360-degree bird’s-eye view, the camera system offers a 180-degree split view, which is particularly helpful in assisting in difficult parking situations.
 
The available features and technologies have been orchestrated to provide a seamless experience.
 
The combination of front-camera deployment, and how the lens is cleaned via a built-in automatic washer, is an industry first. The 360-degree camera system – which shows up to seven feet all around the vehicle – looks out for objects and perspectives not easily seen, stitching images from the front, rear and both sides to create a composite view of the area directly surrounding the vehicle. 
 
The 12-sensor ultrasonic system will enable the full range of available parking-assist features: front, rear, side sensing; perpendicular and parallel parking; and park out. 
 
The camera system’s 180-degree split view can also be helpful in looking out in cross-traffic situations. 
 
Alex Schaeffer, head of Lincoln Middle East, said: “While an amplified level of luxury is one of our main goals, safety is of paramount importance, which is why the addition of a 360-degree camera system in the MKX is ideal for Lincoln clientele.
 
“Being surrounded by such advanced technology will inevitably add a heightened sense of safety, instilling even greater confidence in the Lincoln MKX driving experience.”
 
Powered by the 2.7-litre twin-turbocharged GTDI V6, or the standard 3.7-litre V6 Ti-VCT, the all-new Lincoln MKX also comes with a line-up of innovative features like the state-of-the-art Revel audio system to complement the revolutionary 360-degree camera.​ - TradeArabia News Service
