Camera systems can enhance safety of the vehicles by monitoring traffic in the vicinity, whilst driving. In recent years, research and development in the field of autonomous vehicles has been increasing significantly. Furthermore, installation of a camera system on a vehicle, has provided the researchers with a new platform for traffic monitoring as well as concerns the safety of the animates and surroundings inside and outside the vehicle. In this study, a 360° view camera system is implemented by installing four USB cameras in the exterior body kit of a Ford Focus 2018, while one is mounted on the rear view mirror from the inside. Moreover, an additional sixth camera has been installed in the interior of the car for monitoring the animates and objects, especially at the backseats. The camera system provides a complete 360° view around the car, leaving no major blindspots, as each camera has been installed discreetly. All the monitored data can be analyzed by an onboard processing device. Although, outcome reciprocate solid foundation, yet further research is required for utilizing the monitored traffic and surveillance of the interiors.
