Mitsubishi has released preliminary data and pics of their new EMIRAI 3 xDAS concept set to premiere at the end of the month during in Tokyo.
The annual Tokyo Motor Show is the definitive venue to host the premiere of quirky yet interesting concepts and for this year Mitsubishi has prepared an evolution of the EMIRAI 2 xDAS concept which was displayed two years ago at the same event. The motto of this open-top electric vehicle is "feeling comes true" and showcases a suite of newly developed technologies for human machine interface (HMI), light control, telematics and driver sensing.
Speaking of HMI, the concept has LCDs in the dashboard and center console which have been laminated and bonded to enhance visibility and ease operation. The driver can control the car's functions without having to use the touchscreen displays as the EMIRAI 3 xDAS has cameras which monitor the driver's hands to enable gesture control for modifying music volume, temperature and other similar functions.
There's even a wearable device that will vibrate in case of any special events while a cloud-based application will analyze the driver's physical condition and if fatigue is detected, it sends a recommendation for a rest stop. Mitsubishi has also installed a head-up display capable of showing 3D images of hazards that are up ahead to lower the risk of an accident.
The Mitsubishi EMIRAI 3 xDAS will be exhibited between October 29 and November 8 at the Tokyo Motor Show where it will share the spotlight with the fully electric eX compact crossover concept.
