Volkswagen | Investment in 3-D Technology

Volkswagen has acquired a minority stake in the technology company SeeReal Technologies. This shareholding will give the group access to augmented reality solutions in the field of future display systems for cars. The research project will provide Volkswagen with key expertise in making driving even safer and more convenient in the future. Potentially hazardous situations on the road will be projected into the driver's environment in three dimensions, and "touchable" displays will be suspended in the car to replace instrument panels. Future generations of head-up displays will even merge three-dimensional presentations seamlessly with the environment, allowing for innovative display concepts both in the distance and near to the driver. Conventional dashboards may eventually become obsolete and vehicles may be controlled using virtual switches and displays. SeeReal Technologies is carrying out research into technologies of this type.
