Abstract

The blind spot of automobiles has been a critical issue in driving safety performance. Side mirrors that use an aspheric shape to achieve a wider angle rather than conventional spherical or flat mirrors have been recently permitted from European Union safety regulations. However, these mirrors also cause difficulty in perceiving the speed and distance of an approaching vehicle in the aspheric mirror zones with their decreasing radii of curvature. We demonstrated new side mirrors showing a stable vehicle image by inserting a horizontally progressive zone between the two outer spherical zones used for the far and near views.
