Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR DISPLAYING AN IMAGE OF THE SURROUNDINGS OF A VEHICLE COMBINATION
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method and a device for displaying an image of the surroundings of a combination of two vehicles (1, 2) that are coupled to one another. According to the invention, image data is sensed by sensors on both of the combined vehicles. Taking into account the three-dimensional position of the vehicles relative to one another, the image data is then combined so as to obtain a common image of the surroundings. The obtained common image of the surroundings allows a driver/operator to efficiently and safely perceive the surroundings around the entire of vehicle combination.
