Abstract:
We present a novel rear-view side mirror constructed with an external lens and a planar mirror to improve both aerodynamics as well as blind spot of vehicles. We have designed the exterior lens with a free-form optical design technique to display the undistorted image on the planar mirror. The manufactured prototype of the mirror has the maximum protrusion length of 7.0 cm from the vehicle body with the field of view angle of 40 degrees for a passenger’s side, and of 15 degrees for a driver’s side, respectively. The proposed side mirror provides an alternative solution to replace conventional side mirrors in compliance with the FMVSS regulation of the rear-view side mirror of vehicles.
