AMS™ Driving Safety Benefits
Everything we know about
the world comes to us through our human body senses. Our senseof sight
is the gateway we know about the world beyond touch. Everything we know
about the driving environment around our cars is beyond touch. As
drivers, how we drive depends on what we see. Since we can see causes of
collisions timely and accurately, we can take corrective action to alter
the effect, and avoid crashes. AMS™ helps keep your eyes on the road
while seeing everything behind you without turning your head and helps
to judge accurately and safely what you see all at the same time at any
given moment when driving
Seeing is one thing, but
judging accurately what you see is another. AMS™ does it all for you.
AMS™ constantly displays your car's position relative to all other cars
around you in your rear field-of-view. AMS™ tells you whether or not it
is safe to change lanes, merge and exit freeways, join traffic-flow or
start road-departures, where it is safe to move and how to complete such
maneuvers accurately and timely without turning your head. All you do is
follow the AMS™ "safe or not safe" safey rule, regardless of the
image-size, distance and speed of the approaching vehicle reflected in
the mirror. Gone forever is guesswork. In return, AMS™ drivers can
benefit by improving their driving skills, avoid car accidents and
traffic violations helping to keep their auto insurance premiums low.
ALLVIEW™ Optical Technology
AMS™ Advanced ALLVIEW™ Optical Technology results in a seamless
one-piece mirror that offsets visual distortion while letting you see
everything surrounding your car-right, left and center-all at the same
time, eliminating blind spots!
With clarity of image so sharp, you can read a vehicle license plate
from 60 feet!
Blind Spots Left by Standard Rearview Mirrors
driver’s car in the Center (C) lane is operating with
standard rearview mirrors. There are about 128° of combined blind spot
areas. You only have about 52° combined rear traffic view, which
includes the inside rearview mirror plus the two exterior mirrors.
You have to
glance at three different mirrors at three different locations to piece
together three discontinuous images. Naturally, your rear traffic view
is incomplete and interrupted.
AMS™ Seamless Full-View
you seamless full-view. Now, you can see your entire rear traffic view
-- left, right and center all at the same time, eliminating blind spots
from a quick glance!
Forward Head-Up Display
the standard rearview mirrors takes your eyes off the road, which causes
glance duration, creating driving distractions and produces new blind
spots in your forward field-of-view with the potential for an accident.
Mirror System (AMS™) mounted directly in front of the driver is in
the driver’s natural forward line-of-sight and can be viewed
continuously, at a quick glance without turning your head, or impairing
your front view. This mounting position keeps you focused helping to
keep both eyes forward on the road.
