Abstract:
Safety in the operation of a vehicle (1) with a trailer (2) is to be improved by simple means. For this purpose, there is provided a method for displaying at least part of the trailer (2) behind the vehicle (1) towing the trailer by capturing a rear of the trailer (2) by means of a camera of the vehicle and displaying an image of the captured rear of the trailer on a display in the vehicle (1). In particular, a mark (1) is displayed together with the image on the display, which indicates a rearward end of the trailer (2) in a transverse direction to the driving direction beyond the extension of the trailer.
