Automatic-Dimming mirrors

If you race at night and plan to be in the lead, you’ll definitely want auto-dimming mirrors. Our interior and exterior auto-dimming mirrors use a combination of sophisticated light sensors, complex chemistry, and microprocessor-based algorithms to automatically detect and eliminate glare from trailing vehicle headlamps.

Full Mirror Display Specs

  • LCD – aSi-TFT-LCD, IPS
    • 1280x275 pixels
    • 190 x 41 mm (171 ppi) active area
    • 1500 cd/m2
  • FPGA-based video processing done inside mirror
  • LVDS or Coax connection to camera
  • Approx. 40° horizontal displayed for near 2x traditional mirror
  • Rugged, custom-machined aluminum mirror/display housing

No rear window? No worries. Our Full Display Mirror (FDM™) system consists of a custom, high-dynamic-range imager that captures video of the vehicle’s rearward view and streams it to a unique mirror-integrated display. The FDM can function either as a standard mirror or a clear, bright, panoramic display with an unobstructed rearward view.



Imager Specs

·      WVGA 752 x 480 pixels; each pixel determines its own exposure
·      Bayer RGGB color filter array
·      130+ dB dynamic range within a single frame
·      60 fps for display image
·      Rolling shutter exposure control
·      Configurable geometry and timing
·      43.4° degree horizontal FOV lens; f/1.5


Rear Vision/Cameras

Gentex designs and manufactures custom imagers for automotive machine vision and video applications. As part of an FDM system, we provide a high-dynamic-range imager with pixel-level intelligence and custom image-processing software that combine to provide unprecedented rearward vision, day or night.



Racing at night requires maximum forward lighting. Our mirror-mount-integrated forward vision system optimizes any forward lighting solution. SmartBeam can control automatic high-beam on/off, dynamic forward lighting, LED matrix beams or laser headlamps.
