According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every year, thousands of car accidents take place due to sun glare. To deal with this issue, German engineering company Bosch has come up with a clever new automotive sun visor.
Now to avoid rays from shining directly into your eyes, you need not to search for your sunglasses or pull down that obstructing plastic flap. Bosch’s Virtual Visor will track your face and will just block the precise section.
Bosch’s Virtual Visor
Company revealed this new technology at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Bosch’s Virtual Visor uses an LCD panel and artificial intelligence to track your face and block out only the Sun in the driver’s vision. LCD panel has a camera that faces the driver. The camera has artificial-intelligence technology that shades the eyes of the driver.
According to Bosch, “The creative use of liquid crystal technology to block a specific light source decreases dangerous sun glare, driver discomfort and accident risk; it also increases driver visibility, comfort and safety,”
Jason Zink, one of the engineers on the project, said, “You could be driving right toward the sun and you would still be able to see adequately,”
