Heads up: Local firm bringing cockpit display tech to cyclists :D

Fighter pilots have long been able to view flight data projected onto jet windshields within their line of sight. Soon recreational motorcyclists and bicyclists will be able to take advantage of that technology.

Motion Research, a Seattle company founded in 1993 by a former race-car driver, Dominic Dobson, said that next spring it would begin selling an inexpensive information display system to be attached to a motorcycle helmet.

The Sportvue head-mounted display will allow riders to see speed, rpm and gear position without taking their eyes off the road. The system gathers speed information from a global positioning satellite receiver attached to the rear of the helmet.

The design, based on a patent co-developed by Tom Furness, one of the pioneers of head-mounted display technology, uses a lens and mirror and backlighted liquid-crystal display to give the viewer the illusion that the information displayed in the periphery of one eye is projected in the distance.

Dobson founded Motion Research when he was racing Indianapolis and Formula One cars, and his initial idea was to use the display technology for race-car drivers. But the cost of producing such displays was prohibitively high a decade ago. He retired in 1998 and recently picked the idea up again because the costs of the technology have fallen significantly.

"We realized we could build it far more cheaply today," he said. "Not much changed in the technology itself. What happened was the cost of manufacturing changed."

Today, he said, the technology is beginning to appear in the consumer market, both in wearable systems and in some cars such as certain Cadillacs with systems that project driving information onto the windshield.

But Motion Research will be the first company to attempt a truly low-cost consumer application. The price of the motorcycle Sportvue will be from $249 to $349.

The bicycle version of Sportvue, which will be introduced sometime after the motorcycle system, will project speed, distance traveled and heart rate information, like current cyclometers do, and cost from $150 to $199, Dobson said. He said the company was also in discussions with helmet manufacturers to integrate the display systems into helmets.

IR low light/night vision sistem bi imel raje, da vidim ovire na ali ob kraju ceste v neugodnih vremenskih razmerah.

Pa si ze kdaj probal kak tak sistem............ni primerno za nikakersno voznjo.....po minuti,dveh zacnejo oci pect ko svina :wacko: ..........po pol ure mas ze tolk solzne da folk misli da si se jokal :cry: !! Je pa res da se vidi noro-hudo-dobr :yea2: , pomisli pa se na efekt, ko se na cesti srecas z nasproti vozecim se vozilom, bi rabil se soncna ocala spodaj :ph34r:

(sem se imel enkrat priliko igrat z night visionom ponoci po hosti :naughty: )

moderator sporoča: a lahk ne citirate takih dolgih spisov v celoti? Hvala!

tole mora pa drgac bit kar zanimivo, bi blo morda se malo bolj uporabno ce bi ti kar podatke od GPS-ja projeciralo (naprimer "go to" funkcijo) saj ga tako ali tako ze uporablja za merjenje hitrosti B)

generacije? .....trenutno NV sistemi 4. in 5. genercije nimajo velikih problemov z normalnimi zarometi a la 60/55 W ponoci (ccd in elektronika). so pa zato svinjsko dragi. :BUA:

IR low light je drugo. pri tem sistemu IR emiter oddaja aktiven zarek IR svetlobe, katerega optika "vidi", clovesko oko ne. ce je ta slika projecirana recimo na notranjo stran vizirja (cadillac npr. tak sistem ze prodaja v avtomobilih, volvo preizkusa tak sistem) zaromet torej ne moti oz. svetloba iz njega se ne ojaca. laicno povedano. :)

Zanimiva rešitev. Upam le da bo cena "bolj sprejemljiva" ko bo to na voljo.

USD 2.000.-, USD 1.500.- ce prednarocis. ni glih sprejemljiva cena, ce traja baterija "samo" 8 ur ("cel dan", kot v filmu omenjeno ?).

 

2014 v angleskem svetu in 2015 pride tudi do nemcije, grcije, rusije, itd. (na koncu filma omenijo rok lansiranja in drzave).

Moje mnenje je da bi mogoče bolj zanimivo bilo čelade raznih znamk prilagoditi taki tehnologiji kot jo bo kmalu ponudil Google z Glass-om.

Tako bi lahko omenjeno selil iz čelade v čelade pa še uporabljal drugje (npr. avto itd.).

Tako bi bil tak "strošek" veliko bolj upravičen.
