You don't need eyes to see; you need Synthetic Vision. Augmented vision is the next big step in safety and information for pilots.
Over the past decade, GA pilots’ ability to visualize terrain, navigation, traffic (ADS-B), weather, and airspace has become easier, along with improvements in convenience and safety items like emergency, preflight, inflight, and landing checklists. But handy as this information is, accessing it requires pilots to take their eyes off the sky, and often access multiple screens and devices.
As even a HUD (head-up display) is in a fixed location, Aero Glass has integrated all these functions, and made them available to pilots, wherever their head is turned, with 3D, 360-degree perspective, and is premiering its augmented vision glasses, wearable information for pilots. Using Epson Moverio™, Google Glass™ and other head-mounted displays, Aero Glass is the first to bring Augmented Reality to pilots, providing an unparalleled 3D, 360° experience in the cockpit, regardless of the visibility.
Ananda Leon, General Manager at Levil Technology Corp., which is a major technology partner with Aero Glass, says, "We at Levil Technology are excited to be part of the Augmented Reality concept that Aero Glass provides. The iLevil series revolutionized the role of tablets in the cockpit, placing essential flight information at the pilots’ fingertips. The fact that this information is now available in the pilots’ line of sight is simply breathtaking. AeroGlass unlocks unexplored opportunities in HEADS-UP technology for GA and takes your flying experience to the next level.”
This technology, previously available only in specialized military helmets, is now available to GA pilots, and at accessible prices.
Cameron Clarke, VP, Business Development at Aero Glass, says, “Our community of Pioneer Program Beta testers will work together through an online forum to create the final product which will provide feedback and special features of interest as part of this program, leading to safer skies for all aviators, as they navigate the skies easily in any visibility.” (There is a signup form for this beta group online at www.glass.aero.)
Clarke continued, “We will be selling product at Oshkosh, including a Show Special offer with discounted pricing and lifetime license for the first 200 folks who sign up and buy our beta product at the show.”
Aero Glass will be exhibiting at Airventure in Hangar A, space 1110. [ home ]
