gm hud augmented reality

The folks over at GM have come up with a rather interesting system dubbed the Enhanced Vision System. The system was designed with safety in mind, and uses Heads up Display (HUD) technology and the increasingly popular augmented reality concept together. By utilizing front-facing sensors, as well as in-vehicle cameras that are tasked with tracking the driver’s head and eyes, the system is able to overlay road lines on the windshield and even read road signs to help you out, in the event that the weather is bad and visibility is low. It certainly seems quite cool, and something we wouldn’t mind appearing in our cars. There isn’t any mention if or when the technology will make it to consumer vehicles, but we do have a video on it after the jump.

Press release.
