In the last years, Touch screens It has become one of the preferred technologies for automobile manufacturers. However, despite the benefit they can provide on board a vehicle, their use can raise safety concerns, because they can, to a greater or lesser extent, raise safety concerns. Distract the driver's attention from the road.
Now, hand in hand with Cambridge UniversityThere may be a more comfortable and safer alternative on the way. It is a system based on 3D holographic technology Allowing drivers to keep their attention on the road while still fully controlling the vehicle's functions.
This is the solution that may end the use of touch screens in cars for a long time
Eliminate most keyboards It is something inherent in research and development in the automotive sectorHowever, this development has also created issues with distraction while driving. Touchscreens are less intuitive, because they require the user to look away from the road for longer periods of time. Now it is Using 3D stereoscopic image-based projections may be the key to improving the user experience When consulting the various infotainment functions available in today's cars.
he Department of Engineering, University of Cambridgewith researcher Skirnewskaja at its helm, Publish a study showing the effectiveness of using 3D holograms while driving. This is the investigation that served as the starting point Analysis and operation of autonomous driving systems. It can be said that this is a kind of Head width It is optimized to be able to enjoy all the conveniences and tools on the screen.
that it A service that reduces distractions while drivingThis is the aspect that still claims thousands of deaths around the world every year. Thanks to the arrangement of information on the windshield, It will be possible to specify commands To regulate, among other things, the air conditioning system or the choice of music. This way, it will not be necessary to navigate to the touchscreens on the center console.
It should be noted that this technology It will hardly have a commercial run for a few years, since current driving assistants will give way to fully self-driving software in just a few years. then, The user will not be required to pay attention to what is happening A few hundred meters away when the information is managed by a switchboard.
Cambridge University Collaborates with Google to develop an intuitive system Able to prevent the user from having to manage the vehicle's functions again through a screen with touch functionality. Tests have already begun, and significant progress is expected in the coming months. This service will contribute to reducing distraction while driving and will therefore improve safety.
