Stoneridge launches MirrorEye camera monitor system with Volvo Trucks on global heavy-duty truck platforms

March 1, 2024
The system will be featured on the all-new VNL in North America and the Volvo FH Aero in Europe, Australia, Asia, and Africa.

Stoneridge’s MirrorEye camera monitor system will soon launch on Volvo Trucks’ new heavy-duty truck platforms. The system will be featured on the all-new VNL in North America and the Volvo FH Aero in Europe, Australia, Asia, and Africa.

MirrorEye is the first camera monitor system to receive an exemption from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, allowing MirrorEye-equipped trucks to operate on the road without mirrors, improving visibility and aerodynamic efficiency.

MirrorEye replaces a truck’s mirrors with external digital cameras encased in roof-mounted folding wings and high-resolution displays mounted on the A-pillars inside the cab. Key features include heated lenses, active color night-vision, automated “panning” to keep the trailer wheels in view, enlarged “zoom” views, infrared “spotlight” for improved docking visibility, and optional video recording.

“We’re proud to support and advance Volvo’s drive to net-zero emissions,” Jim Zizelman, president and CEO of Stoneridge, said. “MirrorEye significantly improves both aerodynamics and road safety, and this launch is another step in Stoneridge’s journey to provide industry-leading safety and vehicle efficiency technologies.” 

Volvo’s new, more efficient models are designed to reduce CO2 emissions, accelerating the company’s journey toward its net-zero emissions target by 2040 while offering higher safety, productivity, and uptime for fleets and drivers. 

The newly designed VNL, available in six cab configurations, was designed for fuel efficiency, safety, driver productivity, connected services, and uptime. According to VTNA leaders, order books will open by April for the new VNL, produced at the Volvo Trucks New River Valley Plant in Dublin, Virginia, with deliveries beginning in the second half of 2024. 

“This is our most innovative, fuel-efficient, and safest truck ever,” Peter Voorhoeve, VTNA president, said during the OEM’s virtual unveiling of the vehicle during a YouTube live stream on Jan. 23. “From our aerodynamics and performance improvements, best-in-class driver environment to our new industry-leading proprietary active safety systems, with the new Volvo VNL we are introducing the platform for all our future technologies such as battery-electric fuel-cell and autonomous trucks. Products that address and meet our sustainability goals to transition toward a decarbonized transport solution.”

Volvo’s all-new VNL will be available with MirrorEye in early 2025, while the FH Aero will be rolled out market by market during 2024 and 2025, with a launch starting mid-year 2024.

The all-new VNL application marks the North American OE debut of MirrorEye’s independent wing design, separating the system from traditional OE mirrors and pairing it with smaller side mirrors to comply with regulations.
