Hyundai has announced a variety of new systems, ahead of their debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
First up, the Augmented Reality Head-Up Display and Intersection Movement System projects animated driving information such as arrows leading to exit ramps, one-way street markings and Smart Cruise Control distance bars.
The system also pairs to a "wearable band" which will vibrate when the driver leaves their lane without signaling or another car unexpectedly enters their lane. The band also acts as a heart rate monitor and can notify emergency services if the driver's heart rate changes rapidly.
Moving on, the Hyundai Cockpit Concept will showcase several new and updated features including:
- Heart rate monitoring
- Driver alertness monitor with rest recommendation messages
- Blind spot and safe following distance warnings
- Advanced low fuel level warnings
- Advanced turn-by-turn navigation
- Navigation transfer from inside the car to a mobile device for walking to a final destination
The Cockpit Concept will also have 3D hand-gesture recognition technology which will enable users to simply make hand-gestures to "select navigation, infotainment, audio, HVAC, and even smartphone connectivity functions."
The automaker will also show a tablet-based rear seat entertainment system with a “copilot/navigator” mode which enables passengers to control various vehicle functions - such as navigation, audio and climate controls - so the driver can keep their eyes focused on the road.
