Pretty clever use of a camera and image projection. Which car manufacturer will be the first to add this option to their high end models?
I have a neck so can swivel my head, but this would eliminate that need. And it's cool.It's for A pillar which is pretty wide on modern vehicles with their sloping aerodynamic windshields to meet rollover crash requirements. Enough to block pedestrians in slow seed and stopped (traffic lights) situations. Not a big problem like rear quarter blind spots. A fancy solution for a small problem. Unless it is a small cost, it will just be a novelty. Never personally had a problem with A pillar blockage.
Sure, but I suspect for most cases "good enough" will be acceptable.It looks great in theory, but remember that the image will line up correctly from only one precise viewing location. A driver that is taller or shorter, or moves the seat forward or backward, or tilts the seat back, or even leans his body or moves his head, will throw off the image alignment. Then the image will not only have blind spots, but will be choppy and confusing to look at, and therefore will probably be ignored. You would need some technology that would track the position of the driver's eyes and adjust the image accordingly in real time as the head moves. That is possible, but complicated and expensive.
