Jessica Carraway of Aisin with the mirror monitor
The Aisin Group is unveiling its see-through mirror monitor to the general public for the first time at ITS World Congress Detroit.
The mirror monitor provides drivers with visibility into traditional blind spots. The system enables drivers to see adjacent vehicles and pedestrians more clearly, while driving or reverse parking.
The system works by combining video feed from cameras inside and outside the vehicle, showing areas normally blocked on the rear-view mirror by pillars or back seats. A prototype of the see-through mirror monitor is on demo at the Aisin booth.
“The next step is to working with OEMs to determine via their systems roadmap how Aisin can increase their global safety programme,” said Brian Schneble, manager of customer sales, advanced development sales and marketing, Aisin.
The Aisin booth also features a driving simulator offering virtual experience of Aisin technologies such as next-generation HMI, automatic parking, AR guidance, distraction alarm, automatic brake, and integrated vehicle control.
