For the first time in a volume-production car, virtual exterior mirrors are available as an option in the Audi e-tron. They not only provide a new technology experience, but also many practical benefits in terms of comfort and safety. Integrated into the hexagonal end of their flat supports is a small camera, whose images are digitally processed and displayed on high-contrast, 1200 x 800-pixel OLED displays in the transition between the instrument panel and the door.
The 7-inch displays, whose brightness adjusts automatically, are equipped with proximity sensors. If the driver moves their finger toward the surface, symbols are activated with which the driver can move the image. A switching function allows the driver to also adjust the virtual passenger-side mirror.
