Nissan will begin offering its Intelligent Rear View Mirror (I-RVM) on the 2018 Armada, so drivers can switch the mirror to a rear-facing video feed if cargo is blocking the mirror, Nissan has announced.

The Intelligent Rear View Mirror will be standard on the Armada Platinum model.

The mirror's build-in LCD monitor provides an expanded field of view and improved visibility in low-light conditions to help the driver maneuver the vehicle. The driver can quickly change between intelligent and traditional mirror functions with a switch located at the bottom of the mirror.

The monitor uses a unique aspect ratio of approximately 4:1, compared to conventional monitors' 4:3 or 16:9. Matching a standard wide-angle camera lens to this monitor could not be done since the images from the camera, when adjusted to the special monitor size, produced a low-resolution image with insufficient picture quality. To overcome this challenge, Nissan developed a narrow-angle camera so picture quality would not be sacrificed when formatted for the specially designed monitor, according to Nissan.

The 2018 Armada will go on sale in September at Nissan dealerships.
