Magna to debut camera / mirror system

The Clearview interior mirror displays a customizable live video feed from multiple rear-facing cameras mounted on the exterior of the vehicle. It features a frameless design with the ability to electronically switch between a traditional rear-view mirror and a video display that has a customizable field of view and can display up to three camera views at the same time. This is particularly helpful when passengers, cargo and/or a trailer restrict the driver’s view when using the traditional rear- view mirror. The system is also available with a capacitive-touch interface that enables an automaker or vehicle logo to be included.

The Clearview exterior mirror integrates a camera with a U.S. regulatory-compliant side-view mirror to display a live feed inside the vehicle. Cameras are mounted on the mirrors beyond the widest point of the vehicle to achieve a maximum field of view, enhance the driver’s awareness and improve safety. The exterior mirror can also include safety and convenience features such as surround-view cameras, blind zone indicators, auto dimming glass, memory, power fold and forward/rear lighting.
