Stoneridge's MirrorEye wins technical achievement award

Stoneridge’s MirrorEye wins technical achievement award

The North American Truck Writers committee has honored Stoneridge‘s MirrorEye Camera Monitor System with the 2020 Jim Winsor Technical Achievement Award.

The award was presented during the Industry Awards Luncheon at the Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition in Atlanta.

The annual award honors new products or technologies introduced the previous year that embody innovation, vision, technical achievement and applicability and benefits for the trucking industry. Each year, a panel of editors representing the industry’s major publications nominates products and technologies and chooses five award finalists and one overall winner for the award. This year’s top five finalists were chosen from more than 30 new products nominated by committee members, the committee says.

Stoneridge says its MirrorEye Camera Monitor System replaces traditional glass mirrors on Class 8 trucks with a five-camera, three monitor array that provides a better field of view for drivers while eliminating blind spots. It also enables additional warning opportunities and improves vehicle fuel efficiency by eliminating bulky external mirrors.

The truck writers committee also honored four other products, which were awarded a Top 5 for 2020 trophy, including:

  • Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems Intellipark – The electronic parking brake system improves safety by preventing roll-away events by automatically applying parking brakes. It also prevents tire and driveline damage by automatically releasing trailer brakes when the vehicle is in motion.
  • Chevron Delo 600 – The engine oil, a low sulfated ash formulation, reduces the rate of Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) clogging to extend service intervals, lowers the need for active regeneration events, which cuts fuel consumption, and could enable improvements in DPF design.
  • Link ROI Cabmate – The electronically controlled infinitely variable cab suspension improves ride quality and driver satisfaction. It protects the cab structure by controlling stress that can lead to higher maintenance costs and enhances safety by increasing vehicle stability and providing a more restful sleep for team drivers.
  • SAF-Holland SMAR-te Tire Pilot – The tire inflation management system optimizes tire pressure based on axle load to maximize tire life. It improves safety under light loads by optimizing the tire contact patch for better traction, while cushioning the vehicle and cargo when lightly loaded.
