Automotive rear view mirror with electronic display
Go beyond what’s possible for rear view mirrors.

eMirror Solutions

  • The mirror is an ideal space for a variety of display information, safety and experience-enhancing features. Integrating information into the rear view mirror allows the driver to more safely and naturally glance up. But doing so effectively requires a solution that’s far more than just a mirror—it also needs to also function as a full-width display.

    3M Science helps you realize all the benefits of eMirrors. Our solutions are designed to enable seamless transfer between a mirror and digital display with little or no ambient reflection or distortion interference. This gives you excellent performance and a crystal clear display.

The future is in sight

Blending safety features like blind spot monitoring and driver alerts with intuitive displays helps maximize design, performance and occupant experience. When these elements come together seamlessly, you can deliver a next-level experience—right down to the digital rear view mirrors and cameras.

    Safer at a glance

    Now you can make sure even the mirror is a reflection of the quality of the vehicles you design and produce. 3M technology allows you to create a dual-function mirror and display that delivers an immersive experience with optimal clarity and brightness. Our eMirror technology helps unlock safety features such as blind spot monitoring and alerts, with a wider field of view.

    Ultimate User Experience

    The eMirror combines advanced technology with vibrancy, ease and convenience customers crave. 3M’s Reflective Polarizing Mirror Film enables the mirror to deliver clear, undistorted views in both the passive reflective state and the electrified backlit state – delivering ~60% brightness and efficiency improvement over conventional mirrors in most lighting conditions.

A mirror that's way more than a mirror

  • 3M Science lets you switch seamlessly from mirror mode to display mode. Delivering clearer, brighter signals and limiting distractions. In full mirror mode, with back light off, Reflective Polarizing Mirror film reflects as proficiently as a conventional mirror and because it is optically flat, the image won’t be distorted. When the backlight is on with film and LCD transmission axes aligned, >90% of light is transmitted, significantly boosting the brightness of the image display.

Helping eMirrors keep their cool

  • Automobile rear view mirror

    With the marriage of mirrors and digital displays, rear view mirrors need to work harder than ever. Added work load means more heat and design complexities. Our diverse portfolio of thermal interface materials offers high thermal conductivity, adhesion and conformability giving you the design freedom you need while helping the mirror keep its cool.
