Camera Monitor Systems for the Automotive Industry

Camera Monitor Systems for the Automotive Industry

Safer with Better Visibility

In any vehicle – be it a truck, tractor, or bulldozer – large dimensions and energy-efficient design can increase a driver's blind spot. Camera monitor systems and other systems for indirect vision solve this problem by enlarging the field of vision - a solution soon available for cars. We test the legal requirements as the using properties and user friendliness of your camera monitor system and evaluate your product according to the UN regulation No. 46 and ISO 16505. Certificates of TÜV Rheinland also help you meet application requirements for EC type approval from authorities, such as the German Federal Office for Motor Vehicles.
