I think it's a fine idea. I'm curious though about how it's implemented. The mirrors on a semi, box truck, or even a large pickup pulling a travel trailer, are pretty big. At first blush I'd think that any screen meant to replace them would also have to be pretty large. Where do they put that on the interior of the vehicle?

So I found a company name in the article and did a little digging.

In a large cab there is a lot of room for the screen, especially on the passenger side. But it has to be creating a pretty big blind spot on the driver's side in particular. It's like a 6-inch wide A pillar. An interesting idea with a challenging dilemna methinks.

Any links to some OLED screens you'd recommend? I couldn't find any with analog inputs from the factory, so I've started looking into using a Raspberry Pi to either convert analog signals to HDMI, or to stream video from IP cameras.

Old pics but still relevant:

Yes, the screens will go on the A pillar. It does increase the A pillar blind spot but it is smaller than the combined blind spot from the A pillar + the glass mirror.

single large screen design duh.. this solves the issue
the turn signal would also turn the screen on when the signal is enabled (prevents driver from being distracted)

both use sony image sensor
