Autoglass 2020 Vision for the Future of Car Windscreen
02 June 2011 - It seems that the automotive world is going to undergo such rapid development within several years ahead, because there has been a kind of vision of what the windscreen looks like in 2020. Autoglass currently released their new 2020-dashboard concept: everything will be included on the dashboard, which is then projected to the car’s windscreen.
Key information such as speed, fuel and car issues are displayed right on the glass, meaning you never have to look anywhere else. It also means you’ll feel like you’re playing Wipeout 2097 or any other futuristic racing sim, where overlays keep you up-to-date about your racer.
According to the new vision of Autoglass 2020, besides the dashboard and windscreen, there is GPS and object detection system to the future car’s dashboard. It is going to have such small brain to detect the drivers’ location, traps, as well as pedestrian warning system. It will possibly help driver to avoid car accident. The car gear manufacturer, however, is mostly notable for its vision toward a windscreen system. Visual sensors could also be implemented, recognising nearby pedestrians and cyclists and highlighting them as potential hazards. It’s all very computer-gamey – and therefore awesome.
The demo shows pedestrians being highlighted, deals popping up (perhaps distractingly so…) and the fuel gauge drop low, whereby the screen informs the driver of the location of the nearest petrol station and directs him on-screen, with arrows overlaying atop the real world.
Autoglass 2020’s windscreen system offers a main feature: the system will call the car owners once the glass cracks, automatically. Some call it as a superb feature. One source wrote an opinion toward the windscreen of Autoglass 2020, stating that they might have not much time to think about the car’s windshields. Yet still, Autoglass is noted as a smart and innovative technology due to their windscreen and dashboard future idea.
