Augmented Reality in the Vehicle

Augmented Reality in the Vehicle

Augmented reality tech is currently trickling down through the automotive industry, and will grow substantially during this decade.  Those designing AR systems have to strike a firm balance between natural, immersive visuals and retaining driver focus on the road. 

This talk will explore current industry progress in design methodologies and technological research, as well as explore the process of generating high and low fidelity prototypes, heads-up displays, and field testing.

    It is even cooler when scientists talk about design thinking. I am always fascinated by his honest experience of embracing experimentation. Thanks again Victor for the insightful presentation. I look forward to the next great progress! And thanks Charles and Jeff for the great session. Pls keep it going!

    Bummer, would like to see this presentation, but the date conflicts with "holy week" (aka vintage car week in Monterey...Concorso Italiano, Rolex Historics, Pebble Beach Concours, etc.).
