Ficosa first to launch a digital rear-view system
Ficosa has worked with Audi to launch, within the e-tron model, the first digital rear-view system to hit the European market (by late 2018). The new vision system, also known as CMS (Camera Monitoring System), is made up of cameras and displays that replace the traditional external side mirrors, providing a new driving experience that is safer, more efficient and more comfortable.

This vision system is comprised of two cameras, integrated into the sides of the car’s chassis, and two tactile displays inside the doors.

Through this vision system, the cameras – which are attached to the vehicle using folding wings – send a very low-latency image signal to the two tactile 7-inch OLED displays inside the vehicle. Thanks to the tactile display, users will be able to manually adjust the cameras.  

The digital rear-view mirror also significantly improves the driving experience and safety of the vehicle, offering users multiple advantages such as a broader field of vision, no blind spots, a more efficient fuel use by improving the vehicle's aerodynamics, no glare and better night-time vision, among others.

The system also includes advanced functions like automatic camera calibration to properly adapt to any situation or warnings that appear dynamically over the image to give the driver information, such as alerts of other vehicles nearby before overtaking. Furthermore, the CMS also enables the detection of anything that could obstruct the system or get it dirty.

The cameras also come with high dynamic range (HDR) sensor with LED flicker mitigation technology developed by Omnivision Technologies. This sensor mitigates flickering to ensure outstanding image quality under any lighting or temperature conditions.
