The engineers at Cadillac say they've found the key to further eliminating a driver's blind spot.
Starting with its newest model, the 2016 CT6, the automaker will incorporate streaming video into the vehicle's rearview mirror, which will be fed by a high-definition camera embedded in the center of the trunk.
The technology will give CT6 drivers an immediate view of what's behind them in all lanes, and improve their field of vision by 300 percent, according to Cadillac.
"The closest comparison to this kind of rear vision would be driving a convertible with the top down," said Travis Hester, the vehicle's executive chief engineer.
Cadillac and industry experts said this will be one of the first models to stream video to eliminate the blind spot. In recent years, cameras mounted just above or below the license plate have shown drivers what's behind them when they're backing up.
"The technology eliminates any rear-seat, rear-pillar or passenger obstructions, allowing the driver an unimpeded view of the lanes behind and traditional blind spots," Hester said.
If drivers don't want to see the streaming video, they can flip a switch to return to their traditional rearview mirror.
Cadillac will debut the CT6, its new high-end model, at the New York Auto Show in 2015. Pricing on the vehicle won't be released until a few weeks before it hits showrooms late next year.
