At the IAA 2018, MEKRA Lang showcased the Digital VisionSystem for the first time which is the product of the many years of expertise and know-how the company acquired in the development of exceptional mirror systems. The MEKRA Lang Digital VisionSystem (DVS) sets a new vision standard for commercial vehicles and is in series production in the new Mercedes-Benz Actros since June 2019.
“This groundbreaking achievement is based on our long-standing partnership with Mercedes-Benz and has resulted in the first ever application of a digital mirror replacement system in series production,” says Dr. Werner Lang, Managing Director at MEKRA Lang.
The DVS replaces both large mirrors outside the driver’s cab with aerodynamically optimized camera wings. The resulting reduction in air resistance decreases fuel consumption by up to two percent. Cutting-edge optics and image processing software specifically developed for trucks provide optimized imaging, covering the entire spectrum of driving situations and environmental conditions. With its software- and hardware-based self-monitoring functions, this Digital VisionSystem offers the driver a degree of reliability and safety that is second to none.
The Digital Mirror Replacement System improves visibility and overview for drivers, and guarantees reliable functionality via self-monitoring.
