In Brief

Racing car fitted with a screen that streams high-res images.

The new Audi R18 Le Mans racer will be fitted with a digital mirror that will stream a rear-view image. The digital screen includes the latest diode technology that allows for high-resolution images with more vibrant details and colors. According to the German car manufacturer, the break-through technology is better than any conventional mirror as it’s less-affected by rain and dirt.

The digital mirror will be tested in next month’s Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race in France. A lot is at stake as Audi has won the event 10 times in the last 12 years.
