Bosch has introduced an innovative sun visors, which enhances the drivers safety. This innovative sun visor is known is called as Virtual Visor.
Virtual Visor was awarded as the best innovations in the CES 2020 Innovations awards and also awarded for best innovation for the safety categories, besides that it got the highest ratings from the judges in CES 2020.
We are be concerned on how it works, well it blocks the sun rays by creating a shadow like a sunglasses on the driver’s face where as the rest of the visor remains transparent, without hampering the visibility of the driver. Bosch also claims that it is more effective at the dawn and dusk.
The Virtual Visor is about the same size and shape as a standard sun visor, but it is a transparent LCD panel which includes lines of honeycomb-shaped inserts. The artificial intelligence technology analyses footage sent from a driver-facing camera to recognise facial features, and monitors precisely how sunlight hits the driver’s face. This Visor adjusts itself to the changing light conditions. The system identifies where the driver’s eyes are, and automatically tints individual hexagons to block the sunlight from falling on it.
Bosch Car Multimedia stated that, “For most drivers around the world, the visor component as we know it is not enough to avoid hazardous sun glare – especially at dawn and dusk when the sun can greatly decrease drivers’ vision. Some of the simplest innovations make the greatest impact, and Virtual Visor changes the way drivers see the road.” As due this hazardous sun glare are one of the major reason for auto vehicle accidents.
