Continental with the aim to revolutionize the way displays are configured in automotive vehicles is developing an innovative cockpit solution. The Natural 3D Lightfield Instrument Cluster is being developed in cooperation with Silicon Valley company Leia, that will bring the third dimension into upcoming automotive vehicles, with unprecedented quality.
Lightfield displays are the next generation of medium allowing not only the comfortable perception of 3D depth, but also the rendering of highlights, sparkles and other complex light effects. The technology enables information to be safely presented to the driver in real-time, allowing the driver´s interaction with the vehicle to become more comfortable and intuitive. It also allows passengers in the front and back seats to share the 3D experience with the driver.
The collaboration with Leia Inc. was initiated by co-pace, Continental’s start-up organization. Through the Corporate Venture Capital team of Continental, the commitment was further cemented with a minority stake investment. Co-pace enables partnerships of innovative external start-up companies with Continental.
Continental will also present the Natural 3D Instrument Cluster for the first time at the CES Asia in Shanghai.
