This year, Bosch brought to the CES 2020 Consumer Electronics Show a “smart” sun visor – Virtual Visor. The new technology is designed to improve the safety of drivers and passengers. The decision to rethink the traditional sun visor in the company explain the statistics of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). According to the agency, sun glare causes thousands of traffic accidents each year, and the risk of a car accident with drivers blinding the sun is 16 percent higher than in normal weather conditions.
Virtual Visor Technology is a clear liquid crystal display equipped with a driver or front passenger monitoring system. Using artificial intelligence, a virtual visor determines the location of a person’s eyes and obscures the area through which sunlight enters the eyes. In this case, the rest of the visor remains transparent.
When this Virtual Visor technology gets into production cars, it is not specified. She has already brought the company the CES 2020 Best Innovation Award in the Car Entertainment and Safety category.
