Title: A METHOD, A SYSTEM AND A DEVICE FOR DISPLAYING REAL-TIME VIDEO IMAGES FROM AROUND A VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention implements a display system of live video camera feeds for vehicles. In a departure from traditional systems featuring fixed cameras and monitors, the invention utilises one or more pan-tilt or pan-tilt-zoom cameras (102, 202, 203, 204) that are controlled by a portable display device (301, 601) having a touchscreen (302, 602). The system has two camera control methods: a first camera control mode and a second camera control mode. In the first camera control mode the directional movements of the camera are slaved to the orientation of the display device. In the second camera control mode the directional movements of the camera are controlled by swiping the touchscreen. The two camera control modes are intuitively combined so that both methods can be used intermittently, without the user explicitly having to switch camera control modes.
