The IQEye3 is a network camera which can record images up to 1288×968 on a remote FTP server. The lenses used with this camera is an omnidirectional lense from Remote Reality which will allow the camera to see all 360 degrees around it. This camera should be mounted in a downward orientation, the lense points down (see Figure 1). This camera should also be mounted so that it can see as much as possible (not in the middle of the vehicle) also the higher the camera can be mounted the better. The CU sticker should be visible from the front of the vehicle.
