Type of communication between driver and car, based on the augmented reality: "new trend" in building intelligent transportation systems



In order to increase safety while driving and to minimize the burden on the driver, the information should be transmitted to him/her in such a way that the driver needn’t spent time on its recognition and comprehension. Projecting and visualization of information on the windshield can help simplify the dialogue between a car and a driver ("operator") and expand the influence of intellectual transport system using projection information about traffic jams in the field of perception of the driver, so that it does not interfere with the driver on the road. This article discusses the possible advantages and disadvantages of using "hints", created within the framework of the "augmented reality" to increase driving safety by treating them as a new form of communication between a car and a driver. So, it seems to be a new approach to the utilization of the system, based on performances in the field of augmented reality to recognize road signs, which impose virtual objects on the field of perception in all types of traffic situations including the uncomfortable weather conditions. This approach can be used to increase accuracy of intellectual transport system with the augmented reality to support the driver in various driving situations, increasing comfort and reducing the number of accidents
