Flare out side view mirror about 5 degrees when a vehicle is approaching or is in the associated blind spot so that operator can see actual infringing vehicle.
This would be triggered by the same process that shows the red “no cross” blind spot warning line on the console. The mirror remains flared out for two seconds and then returns to default position if no other vehicle is approaching or in the blind spot.
The motion of the mirror will also be seen in the peripheral vision of the operator, and is another “alert” that the blind-spot may be occupied.
This will improve vehicle safety and decrease operator stress, and obviate need to look over shoulder to double-check blind-spot.
The implementation requires only a software upgrade, so cost is nominal.
To my knowledge, no other vehicle has this capability.
