Audi e-tron - 55 Quattro Edition One

Virtual Exterior Mirror


 

August 2019

Exterior cameras are replacing the side mirrors to reduce the Cx. Side rear vision is enabled by cameras inside slender side mirrors and screens located at the front of each door.

 

  

 

As the mirror dimensions are reduced thanks to the camera, aerodynamic drag and aero acoustic noise are lessen compared to a classical mirror.

 

However, even if the mirrors are smaller than those on a Jaguar I-Pace for instance, the front glasses are thicker (4.96 mm vs 3.96 mm). Both benefit from an acoustic treatment.

 

We can conclude Audi applied specific solutions for acoustic design (analysis in progress).
