Magna International Inc. has made the production debut of its advanced ClearView vision technology on the Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty trucks, designed to make the vehicles smarter and safer. The unique system, which bundles camera and mirror technology, has the potential to reduce blind-spot accidents and promote safety by enhancing visibility around the vehicle. ClearView also provides other benefits including making it easier to park and maneuver the vehicle.

The ClearView system includes an interior rear-view video mirror, exterior mirrors with integrated cameras and a centre high-mounted stop lamp camera. An additional trailer camera is available as an option to provide an unobstructed view while towing. All camera data is processed through Magna’s software in a central electronic control unit.

The interior mirror boasts an elegant design which utilizes Magna’s PACE award-winning Infinity glass. Drivers can switch between an optical rear view and a video display that shows up to three camera views at the same time – the first of its kind on the market.

The ClearView interior mirror display also includes several other customizable features including the ability to zoom in and out, adjust brightness, rotate or move the images to the left, right, up or down.
