Magna reveals hybrid camera-mirrors
Canadian OEM supplier Magna has developed a series of outside and rear-view mirrors equipped with cameras that provide a live video feed inside the vehicle. Called ClearView, they provide drivers with a better view when changing lanes, reversing or driving with people or cargo in the back impairing the rear vision.
The outside mirror is ‘hybrid’, as it combines a traditional side-view mirror with a self-cleaning camera attached to its extremity. The interior rear-view mirror system can switch between ‘real’ and ‘virtual’, projecting the images of a camera mounted at the back of the vehicle on the infotainment screen.
