FMCSA Renews Exemption for Stoneridge’s MirrorEye® Camera Monitor System


Stoneridge, Inc. has announced a significant milestone for its innovative MirrorEye® Camera Monitor System (CMS). The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) has renewed an exemption for the device, allowing trucks equipped with MirrorEye to operate without traditional rear-view mirrors for another five years. This extension, effective from its initial grant in 2019, underscores the system’s dual benefits of enhancing fuel efficiency and improving road safety.

MirrorEye’s design provides a panoramic view, reducing accident risks associated with blind spots and maneuvering. The system not only enhances safety but also offers a 2-3% boost in fuel economy by removing conventional mirrors, equivalent to about 2.5 tons of CO2 savings annually per vehicle.

Since its inception, MirrorEye has been a trailblazer in the market, with over 40 North American fleets adopting the technology through retrofit applications. The system has also been integrated into commercial trucks and buses across North America and Europe, establishing it as a leading solution in the industry.

Stoneridge, Inc., headquartered in Novi, Michigan, continues to lead in the design and manufacture of electrical and electronic components for the automotive and commercial vehicle sectors. For further details on the FMCSA exemption renewal, you’re encouraged to visit the official FMCSA website.
