Magna ClearView Makes Production Debut on Ram Heavy Duty Trucks

Magna ClearView Makes Production Debut on Ram Heavy Duty Trucks | THE SHOPThe Magna ClearView vision system has made its production debut on the Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty trucks, the company announced.

The system, which bundles camera and mirror technology, has the potential to reduce blind-spot accidents and promote safety by enhancing visibility around the vehicle, the company said.

The ClearView system includes an interior rear-view video mirror, exterior mirrors with integrated cameras and a center 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. Drivers can switch between an optical rear view and a video display that shows up to three camera views at the same time.

“ClearView showcases Magna’s unmatched ability to draw on the breadth of its capabilities and expertise to provide a full-system solution for consumers,” said Jeff Hunt, president of Magna Mirrors, Mechatronics and Lighting. “This unique synergy combines our leading vision-based expertise with our mirror capabilities to create an advanced technology that promotes safety and gives the driver more information about the immediate surroundings.”

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.
