Harman, the premium global audio and infotainment group is demonstrating the integration of Google Glass with its advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) engine at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Harman continues to implement its ADAS engine on a variety of devices and is the first Tier 1 automotive supplier to launch ADAS implementation on wearable devices, a growing market projected to exceed $5 billion in 2016.
The system uses an Android camera feed and image processing to analyze in real-time camera the potential road risks provide alerts through the Google Glass. For example, the system continuously computes the time to collision with the vehicle in front and provides audio-visual collision alerts once the risk level crosses a certain threshold.
The concept demonstrates how a driver can receive headway alerts, collision and off-road warnings delivered straight to Google Glass, along with emergency or warning messages.
Hyundai has announced that its next generation of products, starting with the all-new 2015 Genesis, will allow owners to connect with their vehicle using wearable devices. Hyundai’s cloud-based Blue Link platform makes features such as remote start and service information quickly accessible through new devices such as Google Glass and others. (Earlier post.)
