  • Publication number: 20210233290
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus captures a rear area behind a vehicle and generates an image, and displays on the image at a position in the image corresponding to the position between the vehicle and a detection object a recognition image extending a predetermined distance in a height direction with respect to road surface and having transmittance that increases with height distance from the road surface. A display control apparatus simultaneously displays a bird's-eye view image of a vehicle, a rear area image behind the vehicle, and a guide image extending rearward and being spaced apart in the width direction of the vehicle, and displays an image on lower right or left of the bird's-eye view image based on a position of an obstacle existing on right or left rear side of the vehicle, and a second image on right edge or on left edge of the image outside the guide image.

  • Patent number: 11030468
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a communication interface and a controller. The communication interface is configured to acquire a first video image capturing an outside area of a moving body. The controller is configured to cause a second video image corresponding to a display region of the first video image to be displayed on a display apparatus. The controller is also configured to detect at least a portion of a detection object in the display region of the first video image, determine whether one or more conditions are met based on a relative positional relationship between the moving body and the detection object and, when it is determined that the one or more conditions are met, cause a first marker corresponding to the detection object to be superimposed on the second video image and displayed on the display apparatus.
