<JDI Future Trip Project>
Commencing the development of attachable unit
-Utilizing the world's top share of automobile mounted heads up display technology-

Concept name:

Japan Display Inc. (JDI), in continuing on from the smart helmet, mounted with a heads up display, called "Spart", announced on August 1st of 2018, has commenced development of "KAIKEN", a unit with a small heads up display, that can be attached to a motor bike or bicycle helmet. We are expecting it to go on sale in fiscal year 2019.

With motor bikes or bicycles, there is a need to move your eyes to check speed or navigational information etc. In the helmet, by mounting a small HUD unit, you are able to maintain your line of sight, while being able to check such information, where it is expected that this will improve safety and convenience. With KAIKEN, by applying the attachment structure, it is possible to be used, as needed, on a helmet.

Heads up display:
It's a method for projecting information directly into the line of sight of people. With car mounted one, this is projected on the front window, where warnings such as speed and navigation etc., are displayed.
