“The days of drivers sneaking dangerous downward glances at directions on their phones may soon come to an end.
Automakers are poised to introduce technology on new cars, trucks and SUVs that projects directions onto the windshield and draws a circle around pedestrians or deer on the roadway.
What models will soon carry augmented reality windshields?
The recently revealed Kia EV6 and Audi Q4 e-tron will be among the first when they arrive in 2022.
Kia’s sibling brand, Hyundai, will also debut an augmented reality windshield on the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5.
And General Motors will introduce one on the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq.
All four vehicles are electric crossovers.”

The purpose of these augmented reality windshields is to keep driver’s eyes on the road instead of staring at a phone or screen in a centralized location. Perhaps the most used feature will be directions to a location. However, eventually, this technology may be able to used to identify hazards on the road to quickly alert drivers. With how fast AR is emerging, it might be uncommon to see it prevalent by the end of the decade.
At Advantage Auto Glass our technicians are trained in ADAS recalibration of your windshield. While ADAS is different than AR (a camera is used instead of a heads-up-display) the purpose is the same – to alert drivers of potential dangers.
