1) Advanced CAROPTRONICS equipped with All-in-One Head-Up Display
Revolutionary new i-ADAS*2 Driver Support System for driver safety and safe driving

To demonstrate how technology can be harnessed to enhance driver safety and safe driving in the automotive society of the near future, there will be a show car equipped with a Digital Cockpit System comprising the All-in-One Head-Up Display and High-definition Digital Mirror System.

  • All-in-One Head-Up Display
    High-resolution HUD System that replaces the conventional meter cluster with a full-color, high-resolution windshield display of the information important for the driver, allowing him/her to focus attention forward and thus enhancing driver safety and safe driving.

    Replaces conventional door mirrors and rear mirror. Three HD cameras feed live video, digitally combined into a single, clear display on the High-definition Digital Mirror System. This system virtually eliminates blind spots and the need to shift one’s attention, thus helping to prevent accidents.
