Get notified of road hazards and road signs with 3D symbols that come out of the screen as you drive.

Car alerts when parking or when approaching an obstacle along the road would soon be more interactive as Bosch introduced a new way to notify drivers with a new 3D in-car display technology.

German auto components maker Bosch has developed new 3D effects for touchscreen displays inside vehicles’ cockpits to let drivers instantly detect road hazards.

“Alerts that seem to jump out of the display are much more obvious and urgent,” according to Dr. Steffen Berns, president of Bosch Car Multimedia.

With the 3D effects that appear to pop out of the screen, drivers are able to grasp a more realistic view from the rear-view camera when parking. They can even get a better idea of how much space they have left between the rear fender, such as when parking inside a garage.

“The display’s depth of field means drivers can grasp important visual information faster, whether from an assistance system or a traffic-jam alert,” Dr. Berns added.

The company also assured that drivers and passengers will no longer have to use 3D glasses like they do when watching 3D movies as Bosch’s new in-car display project uses Passive 3D technology that combines two frames into one.

Bosch did not disclose when the 3D effects for in-car displays are expected to be released or which automakers it plans to partner with to integrate the technology. Bosch has previously partnered with car manufacturers to design all kinds of displays: “from small and flat to large and curved, and sometimes in unusual shapes such as round or with trimmed corners.”

The company’s latest project comes around five years after it introduced a freely programmable display for the Audi TT. Audi’s affiliate brand, Volkswagen, also partnered with Bosch to replace analog display technology behind steering wheels with a freely configurable, high-resolution, curved display.

With Bosch’s existing partnerships with the two German carmakers, it is expected that Bosch’s new 3D in-car display system would soon be available for Audi and Volkswagen cars.
