Title
(EN) NON-DISTORTING BLIND SPOT MIRROR
(FR) RETROVISEUR NON DEFORMANT A VISION DE L'ANGLE MORT
Abstract
(EN)
A non-distorting blind spot mirror unit which employs a triangular prism mirror (30) mounted adjacent a driver (D) of a vehicle to enable the driver to view the blind spot area without any distortion of vision. The triangular prism mirror unit has three plane surfaces (31, 32, 33), the rear surface (31) being blocked. By blocking the rear surface of the prism, the image entering one of the front surfaces (for example 32) will appear on the other front surface (for example 33). Therefore the triangular prism mirror, when properly mounted, provides a clear vision for the driver of a vehicle giving access to the blind spot area.
(FR)
Rétroviseur non déformant à vision de l'angle mort, utilisant un miroir prismatique triangulaire (30) placé à proximité du conducteur (D) et lui permettant de voir sans distorsion la zone de l'angle mort. Ledit miroir présente trois surfaces planes (31, 32, 33) dont la postérieure (31) est réfléchissante. De ce fait, l'image pénétrant par l'une des surfaces antérieures (p. ex. 32), apparaît sur l'autre surface antérieure (p. ex. 33), et le miroir, s'il est correctement monté, fournit au conducteur de la zone une vision nette de la zone d'angle mort.
