New Audi Activesphere Concept Car Features AR Armatures Developed by Magic Leap
Audi’s new Activesphere concept car has Augmented Reality interfaces built in collaboration with mixed reality company Magic Leap.
Audi collaborated with Magic Leap for the AR feature in its new Activesphere concept car based on the new Augmented Reality user interface Audi Dimensions. Audi says the removal of physical displays and touch screens adds a new experience space for passengers. The use of mixed reality in the car also creates new opportunities to intuitively integrate the technology into the mobility ecosystem and the benefits of this will go beyond the driving or passenger experience itself.
AR and Individual Configurations
The Audi and Magic Leap’s dynamic interface is MR-based and is visible through the Magic Leap 2 AR headset. The interface has an immersive and configurable layout. It enables digital content to be seamlessly integrated into the driver’s field of view as well as in the cockpit.
The Augmented Reality view is individually configurable for drivers and passengers alike. Users can retrieve and arrange the content individually within a very practical configuration.
Audi is leveraging both eye and hand tracking to display information virtually while also simulating sensory touch control. The virtual moves closer to the user, enabling them to seamlessly interact with the user interface from all positions.
Better Safety and Interactions
The Audi Activesphere can be put into different kinds of applications in-cabin such as displaying road safety information or high-resolution 3D topography graphics.
Audi isn’t the only automaker dabbling with mixed reality applications as driving aids and for passenger experiences At the CES 2019, Japanese carmaker Nissan showcased its mixed reality car of the future.
Virtual reality, on the other hand, is already being widely and meaningfully deployed in the automotive sector. The use of VR in cars has passed the gimmicks phase. Bugatti is already leveraging virtual reality in car design thereby saving lots of time and money. According to Bugatti, VR car design is 40% faster and less expensive than the traditional clay modeling used in car design. Japanese automaker Honda is also using the virtual reality headset Varjo XR-3 to design cars.
