Now more drivers will be able to 'see around corners'.
Ford have developed a Split-View 33mm wide camera - in the front grille - which gives a 180-degree view (via an 8ins touchscreen) at junctions, blind-spots etc.
The device will be an option on the new S-MAX and Galaxy people carriers. Ford say it is the first time cars in the sector have had this technology.
A telescopic jet-washer keeps the tiny lens clear.
