Title: DEVICE FOR MONITORING AREA AROUND VEHICLE
Abstract:
A device for monitoring an area around a vehicle is provided with: an acquisition unit which acquires imaging information from an imaging device for capturing an image of the area around the vehicle; an image generation unit which generates a bird's-eye-view image on the basis of the imaging information acquired by the acquisition unit; a detection unit which detects an obstacle around the vehicle; and a display unit which selectively displays a first bird's-eye-view image that is a bird's-eye-view image of a neighborhood area around the vehicle, and a second bird's-eye-view image that includes the first bird's-eye-view image and a bird's-eye-view image of an area outside the neighborhood area. When displaying the first bird's-eye-view image, the display unit displays a direction indication indicating the direction of the obstacle detected in the area outside the neighborhood area.
