The Centre for Sensors, Instruments and Systems Development (CD6 UPC) participated in the development of a headmounted display (HMD) system to present information superimposed on the field of view of the motorcycle driver, without affecting safety or driver comfort.

With a design adapted to the physiology of the eye, a new optical projection system and control electronics were developed. The system processes data sent through an app so that drivers can see information superimposed on their field of view. The solution represents a considerable advance in technology: a driver’s eyes are focused on the far field of view when driving; with this system they do not have to refocus to read information projected in the near field of view, as in other solutions on the market.

The project was developed in a consortium that also includes the company Shiro Helmets (the market leader), SnellOptics (a spin-off of CD6 UPC) and the CETEM. It received funding from the Ministry of Economy of Competitiveness through the Retos-Colaboración programme.
