Lead as Superman, or when Honda works on pedestrian detection using augmented reality

It is very common to find in the new models that are commercialized systems of detection of obstacles each time more advanced. But a good giant leap could come from the hand of Honda, if we attend to one of their more recent patents: it is a system of pedestrian detection that uses augmented reality to show us what our eyes cannot see.

Following the proposal of Honda, the system would only intervene when a pedestrian appeared suddenly before the vehicle, braking autonomously as do many current models, but we show in the windscreen via a Head-Up Display, a projection of where to walk, the pedestrians detected, even beyond our field of vision. It would be something like having a vision of Superman as we drive.

The advantage that it would bring a system like this is that the driver would regain some of the control that the current systems we have taken. If today the pattern is: sensing - decision - action, and everything is inside the vehicle, entering the hue detection - information - decision - action the driver could intervene before the system acted on their own.

If today the systems of detection of pedestrians and obstacles perform a braking to any of these risk situations, the system of Honda provides information to the driver to decide if it is necessary to slow down or if there are other solutions to the problem detected. Obviously if the driver did nothing, the system would act.

Another system that has patented Honda has to do with the vehicle communication vehicle-to-vehicle. In this case, Honda is working on a system that operates with three vehicles simultaneously: the first of them he speaks with the second to calculate the distance between the two; that second car and transmits the information to the third car, which shows the driver in augmented reality, through the Head-Up Display, which is the location of the first vehicle and what you are doing.

In this way, the driver would know, almost instantly, if the first vehicle in the row of three stops or is diverted, for example, and could have more time to react to a sudden stop or any other contingency. Logically, this system would not prevent to have to leave a sufficient distance for safety, but at least it would inform the driver of what happens later.
