General Motors 360-Degree ‘Surround Vision’ Camera Technology
Surround Vision Camera, also known as the 360-degree camera, is a General Motors active safety technology that provides the driver with an overhead “bird’s eye” view of the environment around their vehicle to assist in parking and avoid hitting nearby objects during low-speed maneuvering. By supplementing direct vision and mirrors, the feature is helpful in showing the driver blind spots, pavement markings, other vehicles, curbs and other surroundings.
Surround Vision displays an overhead video image of the vehicle on the center stack display using four cameras:
- Rear Vision Camera
- Forward-looking camera in front grill/emblem area
- 2 side-looking camera mounted on each side mirror
In some cases, objects near the corners of the vehicle may not be displayed on the Surround Vision Camera.
Shifting into Reverse will invoke Surround Vision on the center stack display. After shifting out of Reverse, front camera view is displayed next to overhead view. When the driver shifts into a Forward gear, the system will present display front view when an object less than 1 foot (or 0.3m) is detected by the Front Park Assist system.
On model year 2016 vehicles and newer, drivers can manually invoke Front Camera View by selecting the Camera icon from the center stack display home screen. The Front Camera image is removed from the display when vehicle speed exceeds 6 mph (10 km/h) or by pressing a button in the infotainment screen of the center stack.
