To maximize driver visibility and safety, Peterbilt announced its new Digital Vision System-Mirrors (DVS-M) in the Models 579 and 567. An intuitive digital solution, the DVS-M uses one High Dynamic Range (HDR) camera integrated into the driver side mirror head and two HDR cameras integrated into the passenger side mirror head. The three cameras feature hydrophobic lenses that repel water, ice and dust, ensuring visibility during harsh conditions, the company says. Both mirrors are strategically placed on the A-Pillars to avoid disruption in windshield visibility and to allow continued use of standard glass, it adds. The monitors can be viewed in three layouts: traditional, panoramic or expanded, and also feature Vision Enhancements, including Automatic Trailer Tracking and Planning, Infrared Night Vision and Clear Inclement Weather Vision. “Peterbilt sets new standards for performance and safety with purposeful innovation,” said Jake Montero, Peterbilt assistant general manager, sales and marketing, in a statement. “Our Digital Vision System-Mirrors aligns with this commitment and reflects how we successfully leverage leading technology to enhance our products and elevate the overall driving experience for our customers.” These mirrors improve driver safety by reducing blind spots on the road, providing clear visibility during inclement weather and by reducing the distraction of headlight glare at night, Peterbilt notes.
