Everett, WA, August 16, 2016– LightSpeed Interfaces, a designer of industrial head-up display (HUD) technology, will be launching its first product designed for the consumer and commercial aftermarket. Leveraging technology originally developed for fighter jets, lumidriveTM is a dash-mounted system using existing Android or iPhone applications to project information in the driver’s eye line.
Driverless cars? Nothing new here, in fact, I’ll bet you saw several during your drive to work today. At any given daylight moment across America, over half a million drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving, taking their eyes and attention off the road for up to five seconds. At only 5mph, that’s the length of a semi-trailer. Get up to highway speeds and that quickly becomes a football field (source: www.distraction.gov).
