Head-up display has made the car cool enough? Then you’re wrong, because perhaps in the near future the front glass of the car you’re driving will become a huge mixed reality (MR) display. Beijing-based Futuris believes the car will be fitted with a reality enhanced (AR) windshield with a song-and-dance dance in the future.
The company also said it was ready to demonstrate light field projection technology. It was learned that the technology will be on display at CES 2020 next month.
It is understood that the display will provide up to 60 degrees of visibility, 80 pixels / degree resolution and 15000nit brightness, in addition to it can be used to highlight the vehicle system detected dangerous conditions, lighting up the road area, in front of the driver road to draw navigation direction and even replace the infotainment system as the main interface for mobile phones and media connections.
Futuris says it can serve as a huge entertainment screen for passengers and will run in a way that doesn’t allow drivers to see others to see it so as not to distract them.
These simulated photos seem to suggest that it can also project human-shaped images, as shown in some sci-fi films.
Futuris says filling the entire windshield with dancing digital candy would be a safe mode. Of course, if the system fails, it might be quite another thing to have a blue screen when the driver tries to change lanes on the highway. While it’s cool to highlight potential hazards and pedestrians, it’s best to achieve 99.999% accuracy in operation or it’s all out of the way.
Unfortunately, Futuris says they can’t reveal the name of the world’s most famous carmaker behind the technology, but it has been trying to get it into mass production. As for what the actual effect is, let’s wait until next month for Futuris to reveal it!
