With FMVSS 111 compliance deadline on horizon, Rear View Safety can help

April 24, 2018
Learn how Rear View Safety can help operators comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 111.

Rear View Safety, provider of vehicle safety solutions, including backup camera systems, backup sensor systems, driver fatigue systems, mobile DVRs, and dash cameras, wants to help operators become compliant with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 111 law.

The new law requires vehicles to maintain a field of view behind a vehicle. The field of view extended area is a 10-foot by 20-foot space directly behind the vehicle. The rule applies to vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of under 10,000 pounds, with phase-in effective May 2017 and full compliance required May 1, 2018.

Cameras must be installed between 20 and 55 inches off the ground and in a range of 12 inches in either direction from the center of the vehicle.

Most Rear View Safety cameras can comply with FMVSS 111. The company has also released a line of cameras specifically addressing the regulation. The RVS-659 Flush Mount Backup Camera (FMVSS 111-compliant) mounts flush to the back of the vehicle and is fully compliant with the new regulation regardless of where it is placed on the vehicle. The RVS-659 also has 700 TV lines and a 170° viewing angle.

This new regulation is designed to save lives in addition to creating a concrete standard.
