Drivers should rely on rearview mirrors entirely to know what behind them, but the mirrors help. Their value diminishes when glare makes seeing the reflection in the mirror difficult, if not impossible. The arrival of auto-dimming rearview mirrors shows how innovation makes improvements. How do these mirrors work, though?

Technology allows the mirrors to perform their auto-dimming function. A "forward-looking sensor" picks up on light from other cars. Once the sensor notices the light, the mirror may then darken to reduce the glare.

An electrochromic gel situated between layers of glass helps execute the effect. Drivers might never know how the physics behind the process works, but they may appreciate the results. Dealing with glare could create a safety hazard that undermines driving performance.

Why not look into getting an auto-dimming rearview mirror installed? Ask the team at Brunswick Mazda about purchasing one.
