A Florida businessman has obtained a patent for a side-view mirror control system with no blind spots to improve visibility for drivers called the See More switch system.
Seymour Setnor of Weston, Fla., now holds patent 9010946 for the system he claims operates automatically in drive or reverse. Setnor, a retired insurance executive, hopes to license or lease the system to automakers.
Setnor said the system is autonomous, and there are two separate controls that help a driver get "a realistic view in traffic or parking." The system includes mirrors on both sides of the vehicle with flat surfaces.
