Volvo wants to go further in head-up display

Volvo has just invested in the start-up Spectralics, with the aim of making cars safer and revolutionizing the in-car user experience.

Through Volvo Cars Tech Fund, its subsidiary dedicated to venture capital investments in companies with high potential, Volvo has just invested in an Israeli start-up: Spectralics, specializing in imaging and optical infrastructures, which offer a multitude of advanced capabilities.

Spectralics has in particular developed a product called MLTC, for “fine multilayer combiner”, which is a new type of film applicable to windows or windshields of a car, in order to be able to broadcast images directly superimposed on the glass.

This innovation could allow Volvo to integrate the windshields of its future models a new type of head-up display, which would be capable of superimposing virtual elements on the real environment of the road, and thus pushing further the applications already used in augmented reality.

Volvo: a safer driving experience

Thus, by directly displaying information useful for driving such as speed limits, recognition of signs, GPS navigation indications or even alerts, Volvo would offer a futuristic and immersive experience to its customers, while contributing to make driving safer.

This technology also makes it possible to envisage other uses, such as advanced filters intended for various applications, digital holographic projections, the detection of events in the passenger compartment, or even front cameras adapted to the blind.

Spectralics participated in the Swedish MobilityXLab program, and is part of the Israeli Drive network, two accelerators of promising and innovative start-ups in the mobility sector, in which Volvo Cars has actively participated since 2017.
