HARMAN has been showcasing its new vehicle technology this week at CES 2023 unveiling its new Ready Vision augmented reality heads up display. Consisting of both hardware and software the system has been designed to enhance driver safety and awareness. Ready Vision’s AR software integrates with vehicle sensors to deliver “immersive audio and visual alerts that empower the driver with critical knowledge and information, in a timely, accurate and non-intrusive manner” says HARMAN.
“Ready Vision is part of HARMAN’s line-up of new products introduced during EXPLORE at CES that are road-ready — and have demonstrated they deliver compelling in-cabin experiences. Each product is designed to work independently to deliver specific vehicle safety, well-being, and connectivity benefits — but also integrates seamlessly with other HARMAN Ready products for an even more enhanced experience. For example, Ready Vision is compatible with HARMAN Ready Care, offering extended situational awareness through enhanced audio/visual alerts when driver distraction is detected to bring them back to a more optimal state for driving.”
