Abstract

See full text

A surroundings monitoring device (200) provided on machinery which changes its vehicle body height. The surroundings monitoring device includes a plurality of cameras (30) that image the surroundings thereof, a unit for converting the original images (31) taken by the cameras (30) to overhead viewpoint images (35), a unit for combining the overhead viewpoint images (35) to generate a bird's-eye image (300), a unit for displaying the bird's-eye image (300), and a unit for detecting the positions of the cameras. The bird's-eye image-generating unit adjusts the display region (e) for each overhead viewpoint image (35) on the basis of the detected height of the camera concerned, and combines the overhead viewpoint images. It is therefore possible to always generate and display an accurate bird's-eye image (300) even when the vehicle body height changes significantly.
