In the month of 3 / 2014, the Association of Automobile Manufacturers (AAM), represented by GM, Volkswagen, Toyota and a number of other companies, and Tesla, recommended NHTSA to use an external camera monitoring system. A similar request was made by Daimler in the year of 2015 to be approved for the use of cameras in place of exterior mirrors on heavy truck models. The recommendations so far have not been decided.

In a report of the year 2018, NHTSA said it was still studying the proposal. The new test will focus first on cars and then on large cars. 

In recent years, many car manufacturers have equipped front and rear cameras on many products to support parking. But others went ahead, adding cameras on the side of the car for drivers to observe without traditional rearview mirrors in certain markets.
