Xiaomi Smart Rearview Mirror
Xiaomi Smart Rearview Mirror is a completely new multi-functional gadget that makes driving easier and safer. Built-in sensors and a dash camera allow it to monitor the road, predict the possibility of a crash, and notify you of the obstacles while parking. The device also sports a GPS-module to help you keep your bearings while driving around.
The crowdfunding campaign for Xiaomi Smart Rearview Mirror was very successful. The developers came up with a product that took into account all the suggestions and wishes of users. Finally, you can find all the necessary features in a single device.
Adjust the rearview mirror inside your car in several steps
Installing Xiaomi Smart Rearview Mirror is easy. Simply attach it to the existing mirror, adjust it so that you could have a perfect visibility and you are done. If you do not want to leave the mirror inside your car you can effortlessly clip it off.
All the ports can be accessed on the top of the device. That way the cables are put out of sight, running under the lining of the roof or down the windscreen pillar. The mirror measures 303 × 76 × 40 mm and does not obscure the view ahead.
Powerful processor improves its performance
Xiaomi Smart Rearview Mirror comes with an 8.88-inch IPS display boasting a 1920 × 480 resolution and 16.7 million color reproduction. You can modify the brightness of the display manually so that you could not be distracted by its glow under low ambient lighting or, vice versa, be able to view the display clear enough on a sunny day. The display option can be switched off and you can use it as you ordinary rearview mirror. The smart mirror also packs a powerful quad-core MediaTek MT8665 clocking at 1.5 GHz that makes it run more smoothly, quickly and stably.
HD-camera adjusts to changing light conditions
Xiaomi Smart Rearview Mirror functions as an incident cam. It is equipped with an OmniVision 2718 1/2.9″ sensor and a f/1.8 six-glass lens that enable the camera to capture 160-degree angles and record in 1080p/30fps regardless of the time of the day. The camera is also able to rotate so that you could aim it to record either the inside or the outside of your vehicle. The device sports a 370 mAh battery with no memory effect that you can power up via the car’s cigarette lighter.
Rearview mirror made with driver convenience in mind
One of the outstanding features of this smart mirror is Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) that provides you with real-time, relevant alerts about dangerous situations on the road. For example, if a high-speed driver approaches you from behind or you cross the double line, ADAS is meant to audibly and visually warn you.
Advanced Driver Assistance System includes:
LDW (Lane Departure Warning) — an alarm system activates when you move out of your current lane. The mirror will make a sound to tell you that you are crossing a double white line. The alarm helps not to drift off the road when you feel sleepy or tired.
FCW (Forward Collision Warning) — detects if the front-side collision is possible and triggers the warning sound 3 seconds before the eventual impact. It is useful when driving through a traffic jam.
PVS (Proceeding Vehicle Starting) — the front motion detection technology gives a signal that the vehicle in front of you started to move. It is convenient for drivers who fall asleep in traffic jams.
High-quality camera, three-axis gyroscope, and a self-learning car-behavior algorithm make the functioning of ADAS system precise. If the system suggests that your car is at a risk of collision it will provide a helpful alert that reminds you to driver safer. To that, the dash cam will start recording a video and will either save it on a microSD card (up to 64 GB) or upload to the Mi Cloud. The video can be also watched on your smartphone in real time.
Wireless connectivity to view and control its settings via a mobile device
Thanks to a built-in Wi-Fi you are able to connect Xiaomi Smart Rearview Mirror to your smartphone or tablet. After installing the companion app, you can share your videos on social media or other platforms with an upload speed of up to 100Mbps. The smart mirror also works well with Bluetooth-enabled devices using the latest Bluetooth 4.0 BLE (Low Energy) module.
You will not believe it, but Xiaomi Smart Rearview Mirror practically doubles as your smartphone. With its help, you can play music tracks, answer calls, learn the weather forecast or plan a route. The smart mirror can be controlled by voice commands, allowing hands-free operation and additional safety while on the road.
Efficient cooling system that prolongs product life
Having a high-performance processor usually means dealing with overheating problems. Without cooling there is no way to record videos non-stop, especially in summer during the day when the device can literally cook and shut off without warning. Xiaomi Smart Rearview Mirror is masterfully designed when it comes to cooling efficiency. Its cooling system dissipates the heat well and not only extends the lifespan of all the components but also prevents the footage loss.
