Just before Spanish company Arcol celebrated last year its 80th anniversary it introduced the eMirror system (CMS). And now it reports this new system has exceeded sales expectations during the year 2022. Arcol is recognized for its broad portfolio of mirrors for different types of vehicles and celebrated this anniversary by consolidating the new technological era.
The eMirror system launched at the end of 2021 consists of two high-definition digital camera's and monitor system that replaces mirrors. This Camera Monitoring System revolutionizes the traditional method of viewing by improving the driving experience in the bus and coach sector, according to Arcol. The eMirror is composed of two cameras and one monitor in each side of the vehicle. Three main benefits can be highlighted: increased safety, improved vision and optimization of total cost of ownership. Arcol states the system improves safety under different lighting conditions, widens the field of vision and reduces blind spots, Because the eMirror design improves visibility and there for manoeuvrability, especially in urban environments, it reduces the risk of collision. Consequently, its repair time due to accidents is shortened. And also fuel consumption is decreased thanks to the improved aerodynamics. Arcol has captured these advantages on its website in graphical elements. The eMirror system is under constant development with the possibility of incorporating new functionalities such as reference lines or alert systems.
