Camera Mirror Assembly Service Design Optimization

Stoneridge has developed a camera monitor system (CMS), MirrorEye, that replaces a commercial truck’s mirrors with cameras in order to reduce driver blind spots, provide a larger field of view, and improve road safety overall. Driver reliance and acceptance on the system will reduce the number of tractor-trailer accidents and fatalities, which requires that the system has a robust method of servicing to maintain its performance over its life. Thus, this project aims to optimize the design of the CMS to eliminate issues that can arise during servicing, like camera misalignment, while also providing a simplified service process.
