Blind zone areas can be eliminated by properly adjusting rear mirrors in a vehicle. The Intelligent View System (IVS) is an easily installed hardware that employs automated adjustment of the rear mirrors relative to the head position of the motorist.

The FV hardware compose of a microcontroller and a camera that are easily installed into the car.The FV is initiated once the car is started. The camera is then turned on. The frames captured by the camera is processed by the microcontroller. If there is no face detected, the camera keeps relaying the frames to the microcontroller until the motorist’s face is detected. Once the motorist’s face is detected, a comfort zone area is automatically set up. This is to ensure slight changes of the motorist head would not affect the rear mirrors. There are conditions which must be met before the rear mirrors are recalibrated. The system continuosly checks whether the head position has been altered. If it has been altered the whole process is repeated, if not the system waits until the head position is altered. The FV is a cheap and effective blind-spot elimination solution that provides the motorist the best possible rear view all the time.

    Out of several motor vehicle accidents that occur annually in the world, 53 % of them are related to blind zones. The National Traffic Highway Safety Administration (NTHSA) believes that the numbers may be higher and is increasing each year. All the current technologies addressing blind zones has live interaction with the motorist that may disorientate them at some point due to an overload of stimuli and they would be unreceptive to the warning signs over time. The IVS is based on the very principle that blind zones can be effectively reduced by adjusting the rear mirrors without any external stimuli.
