2035 Future Automobile HUD

Project Description

Our team mainly explored the future development trend of automotive HUD in 2035. In the initial research, we explored the impact of various aspects of future life on people. Based on the impact of our future predictions, we have established a car HUD system with AR sets and body sensors to achieve in-car medical service and emergency rescue. We are committed to creating a more comfortable, safe, and intelligent driving system

Background Research

Future Technology

  • Immersive Human-machine interface apply to transportation

  • Popularization of Digital Identity and Behavioral Biometrics

The rise of Ai

  • Jobs like Travel agents, Taxi drivers, Store cashiers, Fast food cooks may disappear.

  • An auto industry could lead to job losses and business failures

Smart Wearable Device

  • Wearable technology dispenses fragrances that are bio-synchronized to the person's current emotional

Huge Population Pressure

  • You can write here as much as you want, this text will always look nice, whether you write longer paragraphs or just a few words. Click here and try it out.

Diversified workplaces

  • workers have choices to where they want to work.

  • Less Hierarchy.

  • Big Emphasis on Wellness

  • Flexible Floor Plans

  • Robot Assistant

Robust Communications Systems

  • Cars will be able to communicate with each other as well as with retailers and restaurants

Background Information

In our first round of research, we mainly discussed the future development trend of automobiles and medical assistance. Revolving around “Are we integrating the attributes of medical first aid into future cars and technology?” We conducted a deep investigation on future car functions, medical resources, and technologies.

The Elderly is not suitable for manual driving. Age-related motor changes may influence the driving ability and general mobility. With increasing age, muscle strength strongly diminishes, and the speed of movement is reduced

Autonomous driving brings the blind or quadriplegic could be back in the driver’s seat.

Doctors cannot diagnose in time during emergency situations. Due to road congestion, vehicles cannot pass quickly, which delays the consultation time

A part of the location is more remote and there are fewer ambulances around, thus they tend to have a longer waiting time

Ever since 5G was announced, connected ambulances have been hyped as the application of superfast connectivity that will bring about the next revolution in healthcare.

Causal Layered Analysis

Virtual AI Assistant

The AI Assistant are design for a controller of the car system, it will have the access to all the product and outsource services.

It will also be a virtual driver, have high level continuation multiple rounds of dialogue and communication actions. A smart company while traveling.

Biometrics + Wearable

Provide treatment and protection data of user, which allows user to scan 3D image of a fingerprint and analyze all of its minutiae.

Healthcare monitor could be design in a wearable, detect user’s health condition accurate and quick. It will also become a replacement of smartphone devices

2035 Future Automobile HUD

Internet of Things

Improved communication between connected electronic devices.

Data analysis and real-time transportation management

Smart Pavement monitors, weather, road conditions, and even road wear and tear, and shares information with drivers and traffic controllers.

2035 Future Automobile HUD

Immersive Experience

AR-enabled glasses or windshields that can display real-time data about traffic, weather, fuel, speed, and navigation.

Using AR, uers can point their smartphone towards different parts of a vehicle to access maintenance guides.

The interconnection among screens, windows, and lights creates an immersive experience.

Ideation Sketch

After all the research, we created Sketch according to the disease situation of different users, divided into four directions altogether: sudden disease, pregnancy, disability, elderly, wearable devices, brainstorming other ideas, to develop our design potential and a new approach. We didn’t know what our design would be at this stage, and it would be cool to try out different designs with lots of sketches. It keeps our imagination alive.
