HI, I'm new to the forum here but been an Elektor reader on and off since the 1980s and an electronics constructor for around 50 years.

Does anyone have any information on a diy version of the recently introduced 360 Deg birds eye view parking aids. These use 4 small video cameras mounted front and back and under each door mirror. The images are stitched together in a video processor then displayed on the cars dash screen. My sons new Volvo has this as standard and it's amazing- no more kerb rash.

I have found a few Chinese versions on e-bay but It would make a great Elektor project. I have also found a range of processing chips from Fujitsu type MB86R11 /MB86R12 Wrap around video imaging technology which is a SoC device specifically designed for this application.

I would be keen to know if this has been featured in Elektor or if anyone else has a system like this in development.
