Japanese researchers create blind spot car visible projection




Japanese researchers have created a system to make the blind spot for cars and trucks visible. A camera records the image on the outside and projects it in the right place on the inside of the vehicle.

Motorists can therefore see what they normally can not, for example because the door is sure, write the researchers in IEEE. The system works with a projector, the image of a camera that makes things visible project into a translucent mirror, the light rays to a retroreflective screen sends it to the place where the user is ‘through’ should be watching.

That retroreflective screen controls as much of the light beams directly back through the semi-transparent mirror to the driver. Retro Reflective elements are known from the silver bands on the jackets, for example, road workers.

The retro-reflective screen would be enough light output to keep the image visible to the driver. The researchers think that the system is useful for, among other cars, but airplanes where pilots could through the floor of the cockpit to see the runway.
