Could augmented reality make driving safer?

Could augmented reality make driving safer?

Distractions are simply faded out

Distractions are simply faded out

The greatest hazard factor in road traffic, apart from the game pass and bad weather, is mainly the driver with his affective actions. This uncontrolled, spontaneous action of the driver is often based on the fact that he was frightened or simply inattentive. This leads to the most frequent accidents in everyday road traffic. Envi should help at this point:
The combination of intuitive user interfaces in the car interior and augmented reality is intended to ensure long-term driving safety and to intervene when minor or major human weaknesses endanger safety while driving.

The prerequisites to which envi is coupled are at least partially autonomous vehicles, OLED windows installed in the vehicle and a corresponding on-board computer. The user can control the basic envi settings via smartphone and app.

The (partial) autonomy of the vehicle should help in worst-case situations. If, for example, the driver is too tired to drive, or is in an emergency situation, the envi system recognizes the need to help and can activate an autopilot. In addition, it can also initiate appropriate follow-up steps, such as how to read..
The OLED windows are necessary for Envi's augmented reality functions and also serve as a head-up display in the vehicle's windscreen. Envi recognizes potential sources of danger while driving by receiving various data from car-to-car and car-to-object communication. In addition to other vehicles, data sources include delineators, wildcards or GPS data from various smart devices.
This results in a basic supply of information for the user and the Envi security system. With the help of OLED technology, identified sources of danger that could potentially cause accidents through affective action are simply hidden in order to avoid accidents. Of course, the user is able to control the number and type of hidden objects while driving. In addition, the combination of OLED and augmented reality serves to make other road users, road courses or signs more visible to the driver by making them visually clearer with the help of a superimposed display.

Envi improves the safety of driving

Envi improves the safety of driving

Envi is an application that was developed in the course of designing a mobility concept and is intended to fundamentally improve the safety of driving in the future. It supports the autonomous driver in reducing or even completely eliminating the risk of accidents. The combination of intuitive user interfaces in the car interior and augmented reality is intended to ensure sustainable driving safety and to intervene when minor or major human weaknesses endanger safety while driving. In order to optimize the service, a driver who uses envi should also save on insurance - pay how you drive.
The name envi is derived from the word environment. This is fitting, since Envi as a safety application actively communicates and interacts with the surrounding environment via technologies such as Car-to-Object.

Potentials of flexible interfaces

Potentials of flexible interfaces

In a car equipped with envi, the on-board computer has a special, flexible touch display. During the journey, the driver only sees a map with his tracking or routing data. If he wants to change any of the driving parameters, all he has to do is place a preset number of fingers, which serve as shortcuts, anywhere on the display. The screen recognizes the number of fingers on the screen and switches to the corresponding interface with the corresponding user interface. With simple up and down movements, the user is then able to adjust the desired parameters. The driver no longer has to look away from the road to search for functions in an overloaded cockpit. The preset shortcuts influence the driving parameters:

1. Light atmosphere in the car

2. Music volume

3. Incar temperature

4. Number of hidden objects (strength of the immersion of augmented reality)

5. Assistance while driving, "Help me, envi"

The shortcuts were compiled as examples from a determination of the most frequently used controls in the cockpit of the vehicle and the most important Envi features that the driver should control while driving.

The most important feature here is the "Help Me Envi" function. This is intended for emergency situations and is activated when the whole hand is placed on the display. If, for example, the driver has a heart attack and knows that he will endanger himself as well as other road users, he can use this function to transfer control of the vehicle to the integrated autopilot of his vehicle. This stabilises the driving situation and takes the person in need of assistance to the next safe stop, while at the same time further assistance measures are initiated. In such a case, such as an acute health emergency, an emergency doctor would also be automatically called to the targeted stop. 

With the help of an intelligent user interface, the flexible interface not only supports an intuitive user experience, but also increases safety while driving in all situations. Role, destination and function are optimally adapted to the driving situation.
