replaces traditional rear and side-view mirrors with integrated exterior mounted cameras and interior mounted monitors to help give drivers a more complete view of the road and the truck’s surroundings, including common blind spots.

Tyson, which operates one of the nation’s largest refrigerated trucking fleets, has been working with Stoneridge Inc, a leading designer and manufacturer of highly engineered electrical and electronic vehicle systems, to develop and install the MirrorEye CMS on 55 company trucks. Stoneridge’s evaluation period has garnered more than 9 million miles, or real-world MirrorEye testing, which involved driver feedback from multiple fleets and contributed to improvements in the system. Tyson is the largest refrigerated fleet to commercially adopt MirrorEye outside the evaluation period.

MirrorEye is designed to improve driver vision and reduce blind spots by providing a wider field of view. It is also intended to enhance vision at night and during inclement weather.

MirrorEye was the first camera monitor system to receive a federal exemption from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, allowing MirrorEye-equipped trucks to operate on the road with an integrated system of cameras and digital displays as an alternative to conventional mirrors.
