    replacing car mirrors with cameras? Man, I’m so old that I remember…uh, wait, no I don’t. Never mind.

    Maybe as a supplement, but certainly not a replacement, at least initially.

    So, what happens when that camera fails and it ultimately will fail?

      A crash.

      If it causes a crash, my first question would be did your eyes fail too?

    I like the idea. But to make it even more valuable, give the camera the ability to record to a removable SD card, like an aftermarket dash cam.

    A few years ago, I posted this comment from a young boy: “I was in a really cool car. You could open the windows without turning the car on.”

    FYI: My next door neighbor, an electrical engineer, is playing a lead role in one of the initiatives by German automakers to replace mirrors with cameras and sensors. I’ll tell him to keep the mirrors, just in case (as if my opinion matters).

    Had cameras been used first,switching to mirrors would be hailed as a cost less improvement.
