MirrorEye®: replace bus mirrors with a camera system
Increase safety and save on fuel consumption for your bus or coach with the MirrorEye camera system. MirrorEye increases safety by covering a greater field of vision than mirror classes II, IV and V. With a better view, you can drive in comfort and maneuver easily in all traffic situations, thereby increasing safety for the driver and other road users.
Replace Exterior Mirrors with MirrorEye®
MirrorEye consists of two high-definition (HD) cameras mounted on the side of a vehicle. These cameras replace the exterior mirrors and cover the statutory mirror classes II and IV. The driver is able to view the camera images in real time on a split-screen HD monitor in the window pillar of the vehicle, granting them the best possible view of road users both next to their vehicle and at an angle to the rear of their vehicle. A driver using the MirrorEye system can see more than when using conventional mirrors, since the cameras cover a larger field of vision. This means that the camera monitoring system increases traffic safety on the road.
What makes the camera mirror unique is the possibility of adding a class V camera to the same housing. This allows the driver to see blind spots alongside their vehicle, thereby helping to prevent accidents.
A Razor-Sharp Image at All Times
MirrorEye always provides a sharp and detailed image, even when faced with low sun, rain, snow and dust. The cameras adjust effortlessly between light and dark conditions in tunnels and also offer optimal visibility at night. And thanks to the quality of the night vision function, the driver has a better view of the surrounding night-time traffic compared to conventional mirrors.
HD Images in Real Time
MirrorEye consists of two high-definition camera units that can be mounted using a vehicle-specific interface. The robust cameras are 50 G shock and vibration resistant, have the IP69K rating for dust and water resistance and can operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C. The real-time HD images from the cameras are displayed on two 12.3-inch monitors using a split screen.
Save Costs with MirrorEye®
Thanks to the compact design, the positioning on the body and the enhanced vision, it is easier to avoid damage and improve fleet utilization. In addition, the compact and aerodynamic design means that you can save on fuel. All of this contributes to a substantial reduction in the total cost of ownership.
Specific Design for Buses
MirrorEye has been specifically designed and developed for OEMs of buses and coaches. This is reflected in the compact design of the camera units, positioned against the side of the body of the bus. This is a big difference compared to conventional mirrors, which are installed at an angle to the windscreen and protrude significantly. MirrorEye therefore provides a considerable improvement in the maneuverability of the bus and reduces the risk of damage. In addition, the system offers bus and coach manufacturers much more freedom when designing new, pioneering buses.
The compact design of the MirrorEye camera units is universal, making MirrorEye suitable for any type of bus or coach. Only the interface between the camera units and the body of the bus is vehicle-specific.
Even more safety with CornerEye
MirrorEye can optionally be supplemented with the CornerEye camera system. CornerEye displays the area to the front and side of a bus. A single camera amply covers mirror classes V and VI.
The camera’s high sensitivity to light guarantees an optimum image in the dark, and the special coating on the lens ensures a high-quality image even in poor weather conditions. With these features, CornerEye allows you to constantly keep an eye on cyclists and pedestrians at roundabouts, for example, and allows you to easily see around corners at intersections. With better visibility, a bus driver can drive in comfort and maneuver more easily in all traffic situations, thereby increasing safety for the driver, passengers and other road users.
