    Lidar-Based AR Display May Improve Road Safety

    A lidar-based AR head-up display allows drivers to “see through” objects to alert of potential hazards without distraction. Researchers from the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford, and University College London (UCL) developed the technology, which uses lidar to create ultrahigh-definition holographic representations of road objects.

    Those objects are then projected directly to the driver’s eyes, contrasting with the 2D windshield projections used in most head-up displays.

    “Our results show that the 2D windscreen projections could distract the driver as they appear in a small area of the windscreen and the driver still must shift the gaze from the road toward the windscreen,” Jana…
