Mitsubishi Electric Announces Innovative Road-illuminating Directional Indicators
Mitsubishi Electric announced today an innovative directional-indicator system that illuminates road surfaces at night to inform pedestrians and other drivers of a vehicle’s intended path forward/backward, or when turning, opening doors or making emergency stops. The system projects large, easy-to-understand animated illuminations onto road surfaces to help pedestrians quickly comprehend the driver’s intentions. The technology is expected to help avoid road accidents while lowering the potential frustration or confusion of nearby drivers and pedestrians.
Selected features of the new system will be exhibited with Mitsubishi Electric’s EMIRAI3 xDAS concept car during the 44th Tokyo Motor Show 2015 at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition complex in Tokyo, Japan from October 29 to November 8.
