FMCSA Exemption

In 2018, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) approved Stoneridge’s exemption application to federal law, making it the first CMS to receive exemption. This exemption allows its MirrorEye® Camera Monitor System to be installed as an alternative to conventional rear-vision mirrors currently required on commercial motor vehicles in the United States.

 Mirroreye camera monitor system® (CMS)

Stoneridge MirrorEye® Camera Monitor System is the only FMCSA exempted* driver vision system that replaces a truck’s mirrors with integrated external digital cameras and digital monitors inside the cab of the truck. This provides the driver with a more complete view of operating conditions over traditional mirrors.

MirrorEye CMS delivers improved driver vision and blind spot elimination

Stoneridge’s MirrorEye CMS meets or exceeds the visibility requirements of conventional mirrors. MirrorEye provides the following benefits:

  • Greater field of view and elimination of common blind spots — Three views, including wide angle, narrow angle and passenger-side “look-down” cameras, greatly expand the driver’s field of view and eliminate blind spots
  • Dependable design — Multiple camera images in case the unlikely event of an individual camera failure, the other camera images continue to be displayed. MirrorEye cameras continuously display real-time images without interruption.
  • Augmented and enhanced vision quality — High-definition digital cameras provide greater fields of view, including color night vision, low light sensitivity, glare reduction, superior views in inclement weather and trailer panning capabilities.
  • Advanced trailer panning — The CMS automatically tracks the end of the trailer to keep it in view while the vehicle is moving forward. This feature could eliminate right-hand turn collisions with motorists and pedestrians.
  • Reduced fuel consumption from aerodynamic design — Removing mirrors during fleet trials and in European trucks has demonstrated a fuel cost savings of roughly two to three percent per year, which in addition to the significant safety benefits, can also improve the operator’s bottom line.
  • 24/7 roadside support — 24/7 roadside support offer drivers peace of mind in the unlikely occurrence of a multi-camera failure or vision obstruction.

*MirrorEye is the only federally approved CMS that allows for complete removal of traditional mirrors in the United States, as exempted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

FMCSA grants exemption to allow cameras as rearview mirror alternative REGULATIONS… Matt Cole (January 03, 2019) 

FMCSA has granted Stoneridge an exemption to allow carriers to use its MirrorEye Camera Monitor System instead of conventional mirrors on trucks.  A recent decision by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration opens the door for efforts to replace truck side mirrors with a high-resolution and more aerodynamic rearview camera system.

The agency announced Dec. 27 it is granting an exemption to rearview camera system manufacturer Stoneridge to allow the company’s MirrorEye Camera Monitoring System to be used as an alternative to the two rearview side mirrors on trucks. The exemption applies only to the Stoneridge system.

In its decision, FMCSA says use of the Stoneridge system provides truck drivers “with an enhanced field of view when compared to the required rear-vision mirrors.” Also, it eliminates blind spots on both sides of the truck and expands the field of view by an estimated 25 percent. In addition, the trailer panning feature automatically tracks the end of the trailer to keep it in view when the truck is moving forward, potentially eliminating right-hand turn collisions.

The agency adds that the system uses high definition cameras

and monitors that include features such as color night vision, low light sensitivity and light and glare reduction. FMCSA also notes the system has self-cleaning lenses to eliminate problems with rain and dirt, along with a defrosting system for winter driving.

Stoneridge notes that its MirrorEye “is a fail-safe operating system” in which, in the event of an individual camera failure, the other cameras will remain operational.

The MirrorEye monitors are mounted inside the cab on the A-pillars and provide drivers with three views – a wide angle, narrow angle and passenger-side “look-down” camera. Group asks FMCSA to allow camera systems to replace rearview mirrors.
