Augmented Reality Windshields

AR is the key visualization component in the “Virtual Cable™” car navigation system which uses unique human–machine interface (HMI) and breakthrough 3D engine hardware providing a commercially available augmented windshield. The Virtual Cable system overlays a red digital line on the windshield providing the driver with a greater than line-of-sight view of the surrounding area.

Virtual lines and objects aid in navigation and scene understanding during poor visibility conditions, such in heavy rain or in fog. Figure 3.56 depicts the Virtual Cable system in action with the line extending out from the top of the windshield following the path of the road and bends sharply to the right indicating the direction of the driver’s next turn. This type of visual cue gives the driver a preview of what’s ahead far beyond normal sight. Additionally Virtual Cable can be used for speed control, tailgating avoidance, points of interest alerts, alternate route presentation, collision avoidance, and off-road navigation.
