What is the Metaverse? Virtual Society and WEB 3.0 in Automotive Field
The Metaverse is the ‘’Virtual Society’’ of the future. People will live in a Virtual Society immersed in full perception, including the five senses of vision, hearing, smell, taste and touch.
In this society, people will live in the space which is based on the concept of WEB 3.0. All lifestyles will be defined by themselves, including their life form and trading mode. The trading mode between businesses and consumers will be carried out in a more direct way, which will be proceeded and completed across space, time and country. Among them, food, clothing, housing, transportation, entertainment, finance, politics, social networking, education, transportation, and activities will evolve from physical subversion to virtual way, which is a cross era life revolution.
When building a virtual society like the universe, the network speed, hardware strength, block chain and the integration between various platforms that all need the support and series integration of various technologies.
In-Vehicle AR Tech: FIC Augmented Reality Head-Up Display (AR HUD)
FIC has been deeply engaged in the automotive electronic design and manufacturing industry for many years. Five years ago, it was deeply engaged in the research of AR HUD (Augmented Reality Head-Up Display) technology. It has the conditions for vehicle mounted Metaverse entrance terminal equipment, and is certainly expected to become the best combination entrance and platform for Metaverse and future vehicles in the future.
The Future of in-vehicle Metaverse
Without wearing any devices, the environment inside the car will be the physical space, while the environment outside the car will be an illusory cosmic society. People spend at least 12000 hours in the car in their life, which is about 6.5 working years. In the future era of hands-free self-driving, the car needs to meet the physical activity needs of passengers. For example, the virtual meeting in the car is not only through the online meeting software, but actually see the 3D virtual opposite objects. These application methods will reflect and greatly improve the concept of unlimited space of mobile office.
FIC Laser Beam Scanning (LBS) Technology Creates In-Vehicle Metaverse Entrance
This is realized by LBS (Laser Beam Scanning) projection imaging technology independently developed by FIC. The image can not only be presented on the front windshield, but also the imaging technology can be filled and transferred to the inner window, rear window and even sunroof, so as to realize the technology of 360-degree panoramic imaging in the car and push the real-time information.
The combination of human-machine interface (HMI), the interaction of virtual and real information, the integration of virtual and real environment, and the holographic floating display touch system creates a complete “Virtual Social Service” related to the In-Vehicle Metaverse entrance.
FIC will Complete Virtual Society Portal Platform by 2030
FIC will complete the construction of the “VS – Virtual Society” portal platform in three steps. The first stage is “Reception”. The integration of in vehicle glass display technology, real-time information push and the vehicle human-machine interface will be carried out from 2023 to 2025. In 2025, it will enter the “Exchange”, and will launch interior environment imaging technology, virtual and real information interaction technology, AI computing customization technology, etc. In 2030 will enter the ‘’Integration’’, providing the realization of holographic floating display technology, virtual reality interaction and immersive virtual society in the car.
Therefore, the virtual interaction and demand in the car in the future will not be without the contribution of FIC LBS landscape imaging technology, which will be the basic equipment of the Metaverse in automotive in the future, just like the concept of one mobile phone for each person today.
In the future, smart life and transportation are not far away, and FIC would go deep into it to create better smart services and more convenient smart ride new life.
