Orlaco will introduce an intelligent camera system in 2017 to replace side mirrors on trucks and improve overall performance. MirrorEye's impressive features include night vision, overtaking detection and an automated panning function.

A crystal-clear view of all traffic in the vicinity

MirrorEye consists of two High Definition (HD) cameras placed on either side of the cabin. The driver can view the camera images in real time on a split screen HD monitor in the window stile, providing him with an optimum view of road users alongside the truck or at an acute angle behind the truck – at all times, everywhere and under all circumstances.

Increased vision when you need it

The Night Vision function provides the driver with a better view of surrounding night traffic. In addition, MirrorEye has a panning function: the cameras automatically adjust when turning or reversing, providing drivers with a better view whilst performing these maneuvers. Finally, the camera system will alert the driver as to whether the adjacent lane is occupied by another road user when he needs to change lanes.

Aerodynamic design leads to fuel savings

MirrorEye does more than just improve road safety. Tests also show that the system's aerodynamic design results in a 1-2% reduction in fuel consumption when compared to a truck with traditional side-mirrors. Orlaco's latest innovation obviously meets strict EMC standards and is manufactured according to the ISO/TS 16949 directives for the automotive industry. Camera and monitor brackets will be available for all makes of truck.
