Car Navigation System using Augmented Reality

Car navigation systems are continuously developed. Pioneer in Japan has recently announced the first in-dash navigation system using Augmented Reality. It’s called AVIC-VH09CS and it guides you through traffic using the “augmenting reality” system, which identifies vehicles, traffic lights, streets and other things from traffic.

All that it uses is a 7-inch LCD, a DVD/CD player, USB/SD car slots, Bluetooth connectivity and an AR scouter mode. The camera installed on the windshield sends wirelessly signals to the AVIC-VH09CS, creating 3D representations of destinations where you want to go; so, for example, it allows you to augment the car in front of you, making it easier to spot.

For the moment, Pioneer plans to sell the car navigation system using augmented reality only in Japan, starting the end of May, on a $3,700 price.

What do you think: would like to use such a system while driving?
