The news from CES 2020 in Las Vegas is coming thick and fast. Bosch has unveiled the Virtual Visor, a transparent LCD and intuitive camera, which replaces the traditional vehicle sun visor completely.
It’s the first re-imagined visor in nearly a century. The Virtual Visor utilizes intelligent algorithms to intuitively block the sun’s glare and not the view of the road ahead.
“For most drivers around the world, the visor component as we know it is not enough to avoid hazardous sun glare – especially at dawn and dusk when the sun can greatly decrease drivers’ vision,” says Dr. Steffen Berns, president of Bosch Car Multimedia.
He adds: “Some of the simplest innovations make the greatest impact, and Virtual Visor changes the way drivers see the road.”
Mike Mansuetti, president of Bosch in North America, says: “We’ve built a culture around empowering our associates by putting them in the driver’s seat. As a leading global technology provider, we understand that innovation can come from any level of an organization, and we want to see that grow.”
The Virtual Visor has been honoured as a Best of Innovation in the CES 2020 Innovation Awards.
