Designing and Evaluating Rear View Mirrors by Computer 690271
The engineer, using a digital computer to analytically evaluate a rear view mirror, can now obtain a full scale, body view drawing of the mirror, eyes, and vehicle components. An accurate reduced scale drawing also is produced describing the ambinocular field of view defined by the entire mirror. In addition to the design function, the computer can be used to show compliance to desired viewing requirements. The great number of available design options make this technique a comprehensive, flexible, and economic tool.
