The automotive industry is continually changing, and new technologies are continually being developed. Currently, Panasonic Automotive has just revealed an augmented-reality HUD that displays livetime lane edges, objects on the road, and other important information to drivers.
What exactly is augmented reality (AR)? Augmented reality is used to place digital information on top of reality. For example, Mercedes-Benz’s navigation system has floating arrows that inform you where to turn. This feature isn’t just helpful but is a safer alternative because it reduces your need to look at the road.
Panasonic Automotive has gone one step further and uses artificial intelligence to let the driver know about foreign objects, other vehicles, pedestrians, or other cyclists on the road. It even goes as far as to share the height of an underpass.
Panasonic Automotive’s system tracks the driver’s eye movements, but regardless of where the driver is looking, it will project images in the right direction. This system also has strict vibration control to ensure the augmented reality HUD on your dashboard remains locked on real-world targets.
