BOSCH brings first transparent, everyday solution for smart glasses At 10. December 2019 From The Car Freak On In Car Technology
The BOSCH System for smart glasses is 30 percent slimmer than comparable solutions and is currently the smallest Light Drive System on the market. It weighs less than 10 grams and is, therefore, a highly efficient and lightweight System. It produces crisp, bright images, even in direct sunlight.
First, Bosch Sensortec has integrated the newly developed Bosch Light Drive technology in the smart glasses System. Thus, ordinary sunglasses are not respecting the highest levels of transparency and privacy to everyday Wearables, since the hidden information from the outside are visible.
The Light Drive System is completely free of visible external Display or camera – significant confounding factors that have prevented a broad market success of the smart glasses yet.
The small size makes it possible for developers of smart glasses, to avoid the bulky, unwieldy nature of many of today’s models: the First is an immediately deployable System of smaller, lighter and stylischere Designs allows, to be able to the smart glasses are attractive and comfortable for user.
The technology is ideally suited for applications such as Navigation, calls, and Wake-up calls, appointment reminders, as well as short message services such as WhatsApp and WeChat. Especially phone notes-based information, such as tasks, shopping lists, recipes or Assembly instructions, where it is important to keep the hands free.
So far these applications are limited to devices with physical Displays, such as Smartphones or Smartwatches. The new Bosch Light Drive technology extends the area of application and the availability of Apps and information, coupled with the easy access to relevant content, social media, and the intuitive control of music or Podcasts.
The Bosch Light Drive technology so it works easily with a curved and corrective glasses and contact lenses. Previous smart-glasses-technologies have the disadvantage that, when the system is switched Off, a veil or a rainbow shimmer, the so-called stray light, for the wearer and its Opposite is visible.
In contrast, the technology of Bosch Sensortec offers throughout the day a pleasant optical transparency, with minimal stray light sensitivity. The view is always clear and transparent, disturbing internal reflections belong to the past.
The ready-Light Drive System is 30% flatter than existing solutions and is the smallest System of this type on the market. It measures approximately 45-75 mm x 5-10 mm x 8 mm (L x H x W, depending on the Integration by the customer) and weighs less than 10 grams.
Thus, glasses manufacturers can reduce the previously required width of the glasses frame flexible, in order to develop attractive, stylish glasses-models – in contrast to the bulky Design of the previous smart glasses-generation.
The BOSCH System has, in my opinion, the making for a technical Revolution in the smart glasses area! (Photo: BOSCH)
