BRIEF ANALYSIS OF CMS EU TYPE APPROVAL OF CAMERA-MONITOR SYSTEM

BRIEF ANALYSIS OF CMS EU TYPE APPROVAL OF CAMERA-MONITOR SYSTEM

RELEASE DATE:2021-04-21 11:47
ABSTRACT: CMS (Camera-Monitor System, hereinafter referred to as CMS), replaces the inner rearview mirror and two outer rearview mirrors with cameras and monitors. "Camera" means a device that renders an image of the outside world and then converts this image into a signal (e.g. video signal); "Monitor" means a device that converts a signal into images that are rendered into the visual spectrum. According to the UN R46 regulations, whether CMS products are installed with the Vehicle or CMS products in the aftermarket, they must pass the UN Only with Regulation No.46 certification can it enter Europe or be sold in more than 50 UNECE countries.



ADVANTAGES OF CMS
1. Reduce wind resistance and wind noise, reduce fuel consumption
2. A wider field of vision, enhanced visibility, and higher security
3. Support vision-based analysis
4. Vehicle Aesthetics

CMS GENERAL REQUIREMENTS (PARTIAL)
1. If adjustment by the user is needed, the device for indirect vision shall be adjustable without the use of tools.
2. If a device for indirect vision can only render the total prescribed field of vision by scanning the field of vision, the total process of scanning, rendering and reset to its initial position together shall not take more than 200 milliseconds at room temperature of 22 °C ± 5 °C.
3. The effectiveness of the CMS of Classes I to IV shall not be adversely affected by magnetic or electrical fields. This shall be demonstrated by compliance with the technical requirements and transitional provisions of Regulation No. 10, 04 series of amendments or any later series of amendements.

TYPE APPROVL PROCESS 
1. Submit application 
2. Initial assessment
3. Information document and testing sample preparation
4. Testing and reporting
5. Type approval certificate issuing
