Soon, jet-like heads up displays for cars

   May 2, 6:06 pm

Washington, May 2 (ANI): A company in the US is building a laser-based head-up displays, like the ones used in fighter jets, for cars, making them more common and useful.

Microvision, a Redmond, Washington based company, is building the laser-based display that uses a red, green and blue laser as well as a mirror, which tilts to direct the beams , Discovery News reported.

By adjusting the intensity of the lasers, the display produces differently colored pixels. The mirror scans horizontally and vertically, producing an image on the windshield made of lit pixels. The whole process is fast enough that the human eye can't see the scanning, so the image looks steady.

Lasers produce brighter, more saturated colours than LED displays, and lighting up a single pixel at a time uses less energy. With only one mirror, the whole thing is also smaller than a similar version made of LEDs.

Microvision's display should be appearing in American cars sometime in 2016. Japan's Pioneer Corporation already uses it and plans to release a version of it this year. (ANI)
