BMW 5 Series: Surround View

Surround View shows the vehicle surroundings and displays them in TOP View and 3D View on the Central Information Display.

The system comprises the front camera, the two cameras integrated in the exterior mirrors, the rear view camera (RFK) and the Top Rear Side View Camera (TRSVC) control unit. The TRSVC may be referred to as ICAM2 in technical systems.

The images from the four cameras are combined into a panoramic view around the vehicle from different angles using 3D computer graphics.

The driver can choose from preset views or can freely select the view (for example, car wash entrances).

In addition, assistance functions such as guidance lines can be shown on the Central Information Display.

The following camera angles can be displayed:

  • Automatic camera angle
  • Side view
  • Front camera
  • Panorama view
  • Rear view camera
  • Moving camera angle

Automatic camera angle

The system automatically shows the most appropriate camera angle depending on the driving situation, thus providing the driver with optimum assistance when parking and maneuvering. The automatic camera angle shows a steering-dependent view and takes into account the respective direction of travel and the distance information from the Park Distance Control (PDC).

As soon as obstacles are detected, the view changes to a fixed display of the area in front of or behind the vehicle, or changes to the corresponding side view if required.

Side view

This view helps the driver to position the vehicle next to the curb or other obstacles at the side of the vehicle by displaying the side surroundings. The side view is from the rear to the front and automatically focuses on potential obstacles if there is a collision risk.

Both the left and right sides of the vehicle are recorded.

Front camera

The front camera supports the driver when parking and maneuvering. The area in front of the vehicle is recorded by the front camera and shown on the Central Information Display. The front camera view cannot be selected separately. The driver must select the "Auto" camera angle to view it or if desired, switch on the "Panorama View" function.
