Regulation

SAE J985 Vision Factor Considerations in Rearview Mirror Design

The design and location of rear viewing mirrors or systems, and the presentation of the rear view to the driver can be best achieved if the designer and the engineer have adequate references available on the physiological functions of head and eye movements and on the perceptual capabilities of the human visual system. SAE J985 provides information and charts for this purpose, of which Velvac uses to help design intuitive vision systems to help make operating commercial vehicles safer. To read this standard, please visit the SAE website.

Rearview Mirrors Standard FMVSS 571.111

This mirror regulation stipulates (1) requirements for the location and operation of rearview mirrors; (2) that vehicles with GVWR of 11,340 kg or more must have outside mirrors of unit magnification with 323 cm2 or more of reflective surface with an average reflectance of 35% or more; (3) mirrors must be mounted on both sides so the driver can see the truck along the inner sides of the driver and passenger-side mirrors and has a representative view of the rearward area in the rest of the mirror; and (4) that mirrors of "unit magnification” must provide a reflected view that is equivalent to that of the actual view at the same distance. These requirements are critical to maintaining accurate speed and distance judgments of images in mirrors, helping drivers to safely operate commercial vehicles, and of which Velvac vision systems are designed to exceed.
