High-transmittance colour transparent display installed in Super Formula helmet

August 10, 2018 // By Julien Happich
Last month, display manufacturer Japan Display Inc. in cooperation with "Super Formula" racing team "Dandelion Racing" introduced the use of a high-transmittance colour transparent display mounted on the pilot's helmet as a see-through augmented reality display.

Thanks to JDI's new technology allowing the removal of the conventional colour filter and polarizer layers, the display used for the experiment had a high transmittance level of 80%, allowing the driver to visualize driving information such as temperature and fuel consumption without having to look at a monitor in the cockpit.

In "Super Formula" racing, drivers compete for one thousandth of a second with team members, checking a variety of information in a high-tense atmosphere where there is no room for any mistake. If a driver's eye movement can be reduced in this tense atmosphere, it can help reduce the driver's stress.
We want to seek the possibility of using high-transmittance colour transparent display technology in many fields with JDI through research and study in the racing field's harsh environment", commented Dandelion Racing's leader, Kiyoshi Muraoka.
