Mitsubishi Electric Corporation will be showing off its brand new Safe and Secure Lighting System on the Mitsubishi EMIRAI4 electric concept car at Tokyo’s 45th annual Motor Show at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition centre, from October 27th to November 5th.
The new system uses illuminated projections to warn other vehicles and pedestrians of driver actions such as reversing or opening a door, by automatically reading the driver’s actions from inside the car.
The system has been designed in response to automotive industry research that 60% of road fatalities occur at night, and with a view to adding intuitive safety features to autonomous vehicles in the future.
If you have this kind of projector on the outside of the car, you could also help the driver by projecting the best driving advise – for example, a track to follow when parallel parking. (BR
