Peterbilt introduces Digital Vision System-Mirrors

Available on Models 579 and 567, Peterbilt says the DVS-M uses HDR cameras integrated into the mirrors to display video on interior monitors.

Peterbilt launched its new Digital Vision System-Mirrors (DVS-M) in the Models 579 and 567. The company says the DVS-M uses one High Dynamic Range (HDR) camera integrated into the driver side mirror head and two HDR cameras integrated into the passenger side mirror head. All three cameras feature hydrophobic lenses to repel water, ice and dust, which ensures visibility during harsh conditions.

Drivers can control the cameras with a joystick interface, and view their output on two high-definition interior monitors. The driver side monitor is 12.3 in., and the passenger side monitor is 15 in. Peterbilt says both are the A-Pillars to avoid visibility disruption and to allow continued use of standard glass in the windshield. The monitors can be viewed in three layouts: Traditional, Panoramic or Expanded and also feature Vision Enhancements which include Automatic Trailer Tracking and Panning, Infrared Night Vision and Clear Inclement Weather Vision.

Peterbilt says the DVS-M helps to improve driver safety by reducing blind spots on the road, providing clear visibility during inclement weather and by reducing the distraction of headlight glare at night.

The DVS-M also includes a fuel savings of up to 1.5% due to a smaller side mirror design and an automatic camera defrost when temperatures reach below 43°F, according to the company.
