CEA-Leti researchers are working with Optys (a Nexter company) to improve smart car windshield technology and get it ready for manufacturing.
Smart windshields display information useful to drivers for an augmented-reality experience at the wheel. The helmet-based system in development includes both data acquisition and projection capabilities. Originally intended for military applications, the system could be of interest to the security, emergency response, and construction markets.
The researchers are currently working on an alternative to the monochromatic hologram system implemented for the research demonstrator that would enable full-color images and lower manufacturing costs.
