The purpose of this project is to investigate the necessary conditions for developing an automated rear view mirror. Mirror automation serves the user by adding to the comfort and safety of the car by including the user in the formula. Observing the users on a predetermined drive have documented their behavior in regard to usage of the interior rear view mirror. It showed that the area of adjustment for all users span over a 5 degree angle in both axes, and that the mirror approximately is used once per minute, in a city environment. The project resulted in a concept evaluation conducted on a semi-complete prototype. The participants had a positive attitude towards the concept idea as long as the product fulll all requirements in regard to accuracy. The idea of the car adapting to the user, instead of the other way around is the road ahead for the modern car.
