The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
I can ascribe the same qualities for technologies, you know. As technologies run forward they put harder and harder problems in front and solve them as wisely as possible.
Lately there have been developed Smart Glasses specially designed for pilots.
Epson’s new Smart Glasses provide pilots with smart HUDs.
Micro projectors located on each side of the eyeglasses project transparent overlays of digital content directly in the user’s field of view over the real-world environment. In addition, the Moverio BT-200 glasses contain sensors such as a gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetic compass for head-motion tracking and hands-free navigation. A front-facing camera for video and image capture also detects real-world markers for augmented reality (AR) applications.
These Smart Glasses can be claimed as a real protector from any kind of violent storm. Due to this, pilots will properly visualize the terrain, navigation, traffic and most importantly be informed of forthcoming air danger and implement prompt actions to avoid something undesired.
The technology’s number one aim is to keep pilot’s eyes on the skies, where they should be, not buried in a flight manual. Technology also keeps pilot informed about weather.
Pilots take no special joy in walking. Pilots like flying. So let’s make their aircraft and flight a better and safer one.
As you remember there have also been developed Virtual Windscreen Concept for cars which makes accidents impossible.
