Stoneridge, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of highly engineered electrical and electronic vehicle systems, was named the recipient of the Jim Winsor Memorial Technical Achievement Award for its MirrorEye Camera Monitor System (CMS).
Since 1991, the North American Truck Writers, an organization of trucking industry writers and editors, identifies and evaluates new products and technologies that embody innovation, vision, technical achievement and applicability to the industry. Winners are announced during the Technology & Maintenance Council’s (TMC) annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Recognition by this award is confirmation of MirrorEye’s significant impact on the industry, and reinforces our commitment to providing innovative technology solutions for years to come,” said Jon DeGaynor, president and CEO of Stoneridge, Inc. “Stoneridge is dedicated to applying our expertise and in-depth knowledge of commercial vehicle systems to ensure safety and efficiency on the road.”
According to the company, MirrorEye CMS was the first camera monitor system to receive a federal exemption from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) allowing MirrorEye-equipped trucks to operate on the road with an integrated system of cameras and digital displays as an alternative to conventional mirrors. The system eliminates driver blind spots, provides a greater field of view and improves safety for everyone on the road – day and night.
