This presentation by Dr. Thomas Vöhringer-Kuhnt, Head of Center of Competence HMI, Business Unit Instrumentation & Driver HMI at Continental Automotive GmbH explains how augmented-reality head-up displays represent a key-technology for holistic HMI and how they increase the user experience and trust while driving.
Despite its fascination with the human–machine interface (HMI) the automotive industry has rarely got this right. Remember the early BMW i-Drive interfaces? They were great in theory but impossible to master. Find out more about this topic and download the full article for free here.
Emily Robb and Dan Cashen of Nippon Seiki present on AR HUD system technology, how to avoid high latency and increase speed and flexibility with large data transmissions in AR system architectures with a 3D latency model, and how to assess eye position alignment errors with a 3D HUD perspective model. Download the presentation to find out why they argue for further research into the source of each error in the total AR HUD system and object targets for each use case in order to achieve system level design objectives.
As shown at this year's CES in Vegas, it seems that the automotive industry is responding to the pressure to keep pace with the consumer electronics sector. 4K Ultra HD, high gamut, and OLED/AMOLED displays dominated the booths of several OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers. While 2017 premium cars already feature OLEDs as digital mirrors, Harman predicts that we can expect more widespread adoption and bigger OLED displays for automotive applications as soon as 2018.
This article analyzes the many arguments in favor of the adoption of this technology, and weighs the critical drawbacks against it:
