1. A dynamic image stitching system for stitching images captured by multiple cameras of a vision system of a vehicle, said dynamic image stitching system comprising:

  • a first camera disposed at a vehicle and having a first field of view exterior the vehicle;

    a second camera disposed at the vehicle and having a second field of view exterior the vehicle;

    wherein said first and second fields of view at least partially overlap;

    a processor operable to process image data captured by said first and second cameras;

    wherein said processor processes captured image data to detect objects present in the overlapping region of said first and second fields of view and to determine characteristics of features of the detected objects present in the overlapping region of said first and second fields of view;

    wherein said processor is operable, via a stitching algorithm, to stitch captured image data to form a stitched image;

    a display screen operable to display the stitched image for viewing by a driver of the vehicle when normally operating the vehicle; and

    wherein said processor is operable to adjust said stitching algorithm responsive to a determination of a difference between a characteristic of a feature of a detected object as captured by said first camera and the characteristic of the feature of the detected object as captured by said second camera.
