Nissan Motor Co. said it has released some versions of its Atlas F24 dry and refrigerated van with video cameras offering the driver greater all-round visibility.

Images from cameras positioned at four locations on the top of the truck are relayed to a screen in the upper part of the cab, Nissan said on Jan. 25.

"The multi-view monitor system is a new visual system for trucks that provides customers with greater convenience in a variety of truck-driving situations," said Nissan Corporate Vice President Hideto Murakami.

The images include a view of space to the rear of the truck, considered an aid to the driver when trying to park. Two others show possible obstructions at the sides and the fourth shows clearance above the roof, the company said.

It already offers comparable video systems on some passenger cars.
