The transformation of the automotive industry from simple commuting to driverless cars through leading autonomous driving mechanism is unbelievable. Manufacturers have already started developing and public testing is on in the UK, France, Israel, China, Japan, etc. with a promise of one in every four cars to be fully driverless by 2030. Emerging technologies like AI and augmented reality are at their best to make the entire driving experience magical, adding to the feeling of both the driver and passenger that their car is an extension of themselves and their lives. Let’s see how the application of AR whirls around the newness of self-driving cars is creating an immersive experience.
AR in boosting road security – It is true that safety factor in autonomous car is a major concern at present. But AR’s economical and swift approach, as well as the ability to harmonize the virtual world with reality, make it an ideal component for assessing driverless cars. It helps in judging the virtual car’s efficiency in maintaining road safety and quality self-driving skill by enabling them to exchange information on the road. Eventually self-driving cars can prove to be safer.
AR in endorsing self-driving technology – Though we are aware that this technology is far from reality now; comprehending and visualizing its mechanism is still bewildering us. It is true that they might not be approachable soon but we are closer to the self-driving car concept. Researchers are using AR maps to help us in understanding the technology, how cars can make sound decision, navigate through any circumstances, identify road condition, react to abrupt stops and other surrounding environment.
AR in manoeuvering and entertainment – Autonomous cars will hold a special place in the driver’s heart freeing him from the monotonous chore of driving. The in-car experience is revolutionized in a unique way enclosing new freedom which can be reanalyzed and redesigned as per need with advanced self-driving technology. Wayray’s Navion is a holographic AR navigation tool without any eyewear or headgear which helps in maintaining road safety and entertainment. This provides exact information regarding route and driving environment in time, through graphics. We can find every windshield to be like a movie screen with this technology, making our trips safer and fun-filled. It is tailored to enrich passengers with virtual-reality experience providing entertainment, especially in long trips absorbing car’s real-time movement. Besides being immersive, the experience helps insiders in fighting motion sickness by integrating their observation and feeling. Moreover, the riding experience can be enjoyable, productive and resourceful.
A home away from home – A mobile home in true sense where windows, windshield, and rooftop can be display screens; using 3D holograms enabling us to avail visuals like road activities and local history of routes the car passes through. Stimulating third party E-commerce scope, these cars can ensure choice based on local tourist attractions, eateries, and shopping areas. Passengers can have personalized access to get entertained, enjoy comfort and workspace. Reconfigurable seating arrangements considering the number of passengers, their interests and their purpose are enhanced the functional experience.
