Hehe. Just kidding. I do wonder if they have stats on accidents with blind spot monitoring cars vs cars without it. The assumption is it would be better, not worse, but without data its hard to know.
I wish lol.

All I got is experience using them since 2008 because of the Volvo S40s and C30 using their BLIT system, I think they stopped calling them that now. Saw their limitations and over the years more and more systems coming around and a few of those limitations still lingering but no doubt they've improved just a bit too slowly IMO... maybe it'll move more quickly now this is more common tech even on more basic cars.

As for stats, I don't know if anyone has done anything. I'd assume BSM is better than none especially with modern cars with full safety suites that take away more driver control. Fantastic for the bad drivers who might cause less damage lol.

"Relying on tech"

https://www.theverge.com/2021/11/23/22798880/polestar-5-precept-electric-sedan-tease-2024

The "production-ready concept" of the Polestar 5 "Precept" looks like it keeping the concepts lack of a rear window. They can just use cameras to accomplish the same thing.



We are probably 10~15 years away from Mercedes or Bentley releasing a model without any external glass. Metal would better insult the interior, making it quieter and safer, and they can just put screens on the inside to project whatever the passengers want to see.

Stuff like that will eventually trickle down to the mass market, presuming it works well enough. So maybe 25 years from now?

I think the new 2022 Lexus NX (or was it the Tundra?) uses a camera for the rear view mirror. But it also has the option to turn it off so you can just use the regular mirror.

I remember watching a youtube review and they mentioned a flaw is due to where the camera was positioned (behind the window) so it effectively makes it pointless when things can get on the window and still obstruct your view lol.

Properly set mirrors and a small fisheye. I don't trust those BSM's I have one on my new Honda CRV and the whole car in general has too much crap on it . It basically drives itself on the freeway.

C8 has a backward facing roof camera which avoids that problem. Does a great job relative to the tiny view through the back window. Harder on the eyes though since it requires near-field vision.
