ClearView to eliminate blind spots
Troy, MI-based Magna International has announced a new outside mirror that combines a self-cleaning camera with a regulatory compliant side-view mirror to display a live feed inside a vehicle. The product, called ClearView, was developed ClearView to help improve visibility while changing lanes, backing out of a parking space, or driving with a vehicle full of cargo.
The ClearView The camera is mounted on the mirror beyond the widest point of the vehicle to achieve a maximum field of view, enhance the driver's awareness and improve safety. The company says it can also include features such as turn signals, ground illumination, and surround-view cameras.
The ClearView inside mirror features the ability to switch between a traditional rear-view mirror and a full-size video display. The video is a live feed from a camera mounted at the back of a vehicle to provide an unobstructed view of what's behind.
"The ClearView system combines our leading vision-based expertise with our unmatched mirror capabilities to create a solution that increases safety and gives the driver more information about their immediate surroundings," said John O'Hara, President of Magna Closures and Mirrors.
