AugmentedNav or NavGate HUD

Pioneer Europe announces the release of its augmented reality NavGate head-up display (HUD) for smartphone navigation apps that attaches to the driver’s sun visor and projects traffic, navigation and other info in full colour through the windscreen, just above the horizon, allowing him to keep his eyes on the road at all times while navigating. Using a DLP projector for high contrast and deep colour saturation, Pioneer’s NavGate HUD creates what looks to the driver like a 30-inch display, sitting about 3 metres in front of him. Location information is presented as a natural part of the landscape for more intuitive driving. The NavGate HUD is compatible with the CoPilot and NNG’s iGO primo smartphone apps and displays navigation instructions, points of interest, road hazards and much more.
