Google Glass compatible Aero Glass facilitates pilot with advanced HUD
A new kind of head mounted display with augmented reality credentials has been spotted, and let me tell you it is going to change the way aviation industry perceives visual information while flying planes. Aero Glass HUD can be mounted onto Google Glasses for providing advanced navigation, waypoints, geographical points of interest, airspace information, ADS-B traffic and other information that is vital for display in pilot’s vision. Not only Google Glass, but the wearable device is going to be compatible with Epson Moverio and other head-mounted type displays. The wearable glass is currently on show at the AirVenture exhibit and the first 200 people to sign-up with the testing program will receive the device for $1000, including the SDK.
The wearable glasses are being developed as an aid for pilot’s who are looking out for more intuitive 3D interface when it comes to HUD that can provide them with as much information as possible. The company is looking to incorporate features like terrain elevation, ILS approach cones, FLARM traffic and 3D Terrain Avoidance data along with other features for this HUD.
According to the company sources Aero Glass is all set to make its debut in the third quarter of this year and it will be interesting to see the applications of this augmented reality wearable in for the aviation industry.
