“According to FMCSA, blind spots contribute to one-third of all commercial vehicle-related crashes. And two significant contributors of blindspots are the large side-view mirrors and their housing.

We regularly hear from drivers about blind spots due to mirror size, bulky housing, and other parts of the truck blocking their view. Could this new MirrorEye Technology be the future of truck driving?
