Continental Replacement Wing Mirrors - Future !

Post by DaveBerlin » Wed Apr 27, 2016 10:24 am

For the Future Wing and interior mirrors will be replaced by an innovative camera monitor system which includes Digital Mirrors - Dave ;)

Three cameras from Continental’s product range are installed inside the test vehicle, and a different aperture angle is the technical difference between these and the Surround View cameras. Instead of the rear-view mirror, the driver has two monitors with organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) oriented in the usual viewing directions and displaying what is happening at the rear and sides of the vehicle. It gives the driver a wider field of vision, the system eliminates glare, provides traffic situation detection with driver assistance functions, is much less susceptible to dirt and dust, makes damaged wing mirrors a thing of the past and gives drivers better vision in poor light and rain. Vehicle fuel consumption is also reduced (less wind resistance) and there is less noise from the wind.

Just thought I would place this information on this post as it is a very similiar subject - Dave ;)
In mid June Japan passed a new Law that approves the manufacture, sale and use of Mirrorless Cars :

It's taken a long time. Honda's prototype X-Wing motorcycle from 1999, exhibited at the 2000 Tokyo Motor Show, had this feature.

Just some more facts on this system with a video - Dave 😁

Traditional wing mirrors are beginning to be replaced with all-seeing hi-tech video cameras and screens such as on the Audi e-tron which is beginning to get more of a mention now and is the first mass-production car to ditch conventional reflective mirrors and replace them with a live video stream on screens inside the vehicle. Instead of the driver looking through their windows into wing mirrors, these have been replaced with streamlined side-mounted video cameras and a live feed.

All well and good until the inevitable broken wire/camera/screen etc etc

At least if a mirror gets broken you can replace it reasonably cheaply without having to get major surgery performed on your car.

Anyone else starting to miss just driving a car and not having gadgets and gizmos distracting you and costing a fortune to fix?
