Abstract:
A very promising use of fiber optics in trucks and buses is the utilization of a cab-mounted plastic optical fiber imaging device as a viewing system for the purpose of enhancing a vehicle's safe operation by minimizing blind spots. This device uses a coherent fiber-optic bundle and lenses to deliver live color images from outside the vehicle to an interior monitor allowing the driver to see the blind spot areas. The advantages over other technologies is that a plastic optical fiber system is a passive device that does not require: power, electronics, controls, or any moving parts.
