Ficosa is responsible for all vehicle rear vision system functions and develops actuators which allow the mechanisms to fold and to regulate.
An electric motor with its memory based on the pivot allows the rotation of the mirror on its axis when the vehicle is stationary. Ficosa’s motor has been developed to be silent and effective in all conditions. When the mirror is moved out of position by a knock, it will automatically return to its original place.
To regulate the glass mirror, an electric motor can be moved according to the driver’s requirements and can, therefore, be adapted to their individual field of vision.
The rearview mirror incorporates various electrical devices and Ficosa has developed a unit that centralises the device management, for example with LIN-bus) Local Interconnect Network). LIN is a standard low-cost embedded network to connect smart devices together.
