Mitsubishi unveils EMIRAI 4 electric smart mobility concept car, with next-generation driving-assistance technology.
Mitsubishi with EMIRAI 4 expects to help reduce traffic accidents and contribute to increasingly safe, convenient and environmentally friendly transportation. It will be exhibited during 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017 at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition complex from October 27 to November 5.
Under the theme of “Feeling with you; convenient, safe and comfortable for each one”, development of the new concept car has drawn on three specific fields of research: electrification, autonomous driving, and connected.
The EMIRAI 4 features next-generation driving-assistance technologies such as human machine interface (HMI), driver sensing and lighting system. HMI innovations incorporated in the EMIRAI 4 design include:
– Heads-up display with augmented reality: augmented reality, using high-accuracy locator combined with high-accuracy 3D mapping and positioning technology.
– Knob-on-display: an intuitive sliding knob enables drivers to operate various functions without taking their eyes off the road.
– Crossed images display: a half mirror with diagonal LCD panel and vertical virtual image from another LCD panel provide clear 3D images of the environment around the vehicle and easy-to-see alerts in the form of vertical images.
