A lot of information is projected onto the windshield, in the driver’s field of vision.
Right now it’s CES, an American show specializing in high-tech. Car manufacturers have joined the party for several years, and regularly present their advances in electronics. This year, the show is virtual, but the novelties are still falling.
Today, it is Panasonic that presents its advances. In this case, its Automotive Systems division has concocted an XXL head-up display, which works on the principle of augmented reality. In addition to speed and other basic information usually found on these systems, the HUD presents its driver with navigation information, alerts on dangers on the road, or traffic jam news, all. superimposed directly on the road.
A system close to the series?
Panasonic specifies that the information is updated every 300 milliseconds, and is projected onto the windshield using a set of mirrors and lasers. The concept is not new, since groups like Jaguar-Land Rover have already been working on similar technologies since 2014. But the Panasonic system seems closer to the series.
Indeed, if the system is not yet available for sale, the Japanese OEM indicates that the assembly fits in a small box, easy to adapt in cars. According to the Americans of Car-and-Driver, this technology should be integrated into a mass production car by 2024.
