Audi confirmed today that its digital rear-view-mirror is going from the Audi R18 race car to the production road-legal Audi R8 e-tron at the end of this year.

“A control unit produces a consistent high-contrast, brilliant image. During the hours of darkness the intelligent control system prevents dazzle from the headlights of other vehicles,” Audi said in a statement. “The driver can dim or deactivate the display at any time. Audi is also working on incorporating additional information on the monitor in future.”

How does it work? Basically there is an ultra-lightweight camera is located in a housing. The camera uses a lens with a diameter of just a few millimeters and covers a much larger field of vision than a conventional rear-view mirror.

On the inside, a 7.7 inch screen takes the place of a conventional rear-view-mirror.
