How the cameras in the 2020 Chevy Equinox create some surprising external views

Camera technology in cars is starting to evolve. What started as a simple back-up camera (now required in all new cars) has evolved into an all-seeing, roving eye that stitches together images from multiple angles.

In a recent test of the 2020 Chevy Equinox, I was pleasantly surprised at how the camera automatically showed a front-facing view of the car, stitched together side views to help me pull into parking stalls, and even created a view of the car from behind.

First, about that forward-facing camera. That’s not common or something I’ve noticed in any recent car test. As you pull away from your driveway in the morning or from a parking spot, the camera view changes from rear-view to front-facing, so you can keep an eye out for anything that might be in the road.
