AI Sun Visors? New EVs and All the Exciting, Cutting-Edge Electronic Automotive Tech from CES 2020

Say good bye to sun visors and side view mirrors. Check out this new tech and cars, making their way on to the roads soon.

Bosch Virtual Visor

Often a second thought, but something that’s always right in front of your face is the sun visor. Typically sun visors either work or they don’t.

 They tend to block the sun, block your view of the road or block nothing at all. Bosch has created a solution to that with the Dynamic Sun Visor. Using cameras, AI and an LCD display, pixels on the display will black out the sun as needed.

Per Bosch’s press release: “Virtual Visor links an LCD panel with a driver or occupant-monitoring camera to track the sun’s casted shadow on the driver’s face. The system uses artificial intelligence to locate the driver within the image from the driver-facing camera. It also utilizes AI to determine the landmarks on the face—including where the eyes, nose and mouth are located so that it can identify shadows on the face. The algorithm analyzes the driver’s view, darkening only the section of the display through which light hits the driver’s eyes. The rest of the display remains transparent, no longer obscuring a large section of the driver’s field of vision.”

Gentex Full Display Mirror

It's time to put side view mirrors behind us.

In this application, cameras are placed inside the side view mirrors and the side view camera image is displayed in the central rear view mirror.

In another version, the exterior mirror is replaced with a camera blade and what is seen by the camera is shown on a display mounted on the interior door panel.
