Stoneridge Inc. expanded fleet evaluations for the its MirrorEye camera monitor system, which replaces a truck’s mirrors with integrated external digital cameras and digital monitors inside the cab of the truck. This provides the driver with enhanced vision in most operating environments where it is difficult to see with traditional mirrors, the company explained.

“We have been conducting MirrorEye CMS fleet trials for the past year as we prepare to launch in North America,” said Stephen Fox, vice president, business development, Stoneridge. “After conducting successful fleet trials with some of the top safety fleets in North America, we are prepared to offer this advanced vision and safety solution to a greater number of fleets for evaluation.”

Benefits such as blind spot reduction, night vision, trailer panning, expanded fields of view and high definition camera and display technology have been very well received by fleet test drivers, the company explained. While North American fleets are currently legally required to have physical mirrors, the aerodynamics of removing them in European trucks has demonstrated a fuel cost savings of roughly 2% to 3% per year, which in addition to the significant safety benefits, can also improve the operator’s bottom line.
