  • Publication number: 20190100245
    Abstract: A surroundings monitoring apparatus according to embodiments, as an example, includes a control unit causing a display device to display a display image where an indicator which indicates a towed vehicle coupled to a towing vehicle is superimposed on a vehicle surrounding image including the towing vehicle and surroundings of the towing vehicle based on a captured image obtained by being imaged by an imaging unit which images the surroundings of the towing vehicle, the control unit acquiring towed vehicle information related to the towed vehicle and changing a display mode of the indicator based on the towed vehicle information. Thus, according to the surroundings monitoring apparatus of the embodiments, the towed vehicle may be easily imagined from the display image.
