One automaker will be awarded the Auto Technology of the Year Grand Prize winner in January at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, AOL announces one of its finalists.

Honda’s innovative LaneWatch™ blind spot display, introduced in the all-new2013 Accord, has been named a finalist for the AOL Autos 2012 Technology of the Year Award, which will be awarded to one Grand Prize winner in January at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The typical field of view for a passenger-side mirror is approximately 18 to 22 degrees, but the LaneWatch blind spot display field-of-view is about four times greater, or approximately 80 degrees. The system helps the driver to see traffic, as well as pedestrians or objects, in the vehicle’s blind spot. To help make judging distance easier, the display has three reference lines. Drivers are encouraged to visually confirm roadway conditions prior to changing lanes.
