Re: Wing mirrors

"Combining real optics and extra information rather than just putting in a camera"

So loads more development & homologation costs, higher complexity, and more expensive spare parts, just to draw attention to things an attentive driver should be able to see? I can't see much benefit myself, since the inattentive will remain that way. I think this is about a desire to eliminate the drag of wing mirrors that is widely quoted as being in the range 3-6% of total aerodynamic drag.
