Ficosa is a pioneer and specialist in the incorporation of lights into rear-view mirrors, which first add safety to the vehicle (turn signal, blind spot warning) but also gives freedom for breakthrough functions (ground illumination, static and dynamic logo lamp, welcome ceremony module,…).
Turn signal light – indicator
The indicator in the rearview mirror is not just an aesthetic resource. This position offers numerous advantages for one of the foundations of road safety: see and be seen. When the control is activated, the indicator becomes visible to oncoming vehicles and vehicles behind or at the sides. Moreover, since this indicator is at eye-level, it allows for a quicker response.
Blind Spot Warning (BSW lights)
The blind spot warning (BSW) alerts the driver when another vehicle is in the blind spot area, making safer the overpassing or line changing manoeuvre.
Ficosa develops BSW systems incorporated into the glass or in the body of the mirror.
Daytime Running Lamp (DRL)
Ficosa’s latest innovation is the incorporation of the daylight – DRL daytime running lamp in rearview mirrors. This is also known as the daylight running lamp or daytime running light. LED technology allows this light signal (which is always on while the vehicle is running) to be placed in rearview mirrors, enabling vehicles to be seen more easily.
Ground Illumination Module
By providing a brilliant light in the surrounding ground, this module makes for the driver an easier and safer approach path to his car, that can be associated with a static or dynamic welcome ceremony, combining any logo projection and illumination sequence.
