Volvo is investing in a startup that makes windshield screens and windows

Volvo – through its technology fund – announced that it is investing in Spectralics, a startup company that is active in the development of visual and imaging technologies. The $ 2 million investment provides the Swedish company with access to promising technologies, which are in the early stages of development and can contribute to making cars safer and revolutionizing the in-car user experience.

Based on the development of aerospace technology and headquartered in Israel, Spectralics creates advanced equipment and software for optical infrastructure and imaging systems, enabling the implementation of a wide range of advanced optical solutions.

One of the main projects of the company is the multi-layered thin combiner (MLTC), which is a new type of thin optical “film”, which is placed on the transparent surfaces of all shapes and sizes. Thus, by embedding this film in the windshield or windows of a car, the technology could be used to project images onto the crystal.

On the windshield, the technology has the ability to make the whole head-up display, giving a sense of distance, as virtual objects are inserted into a real environment. Other possible uses of this technology include advanced filters for various applications, cabin detection systems, anti-glare cameras on the front of the car and digital holographic projections.
