Samsung's smart motorcycle windshield uses your phone to power a virtual dashboard


Samsung's brewed up a fresh idea of how to bring a smart dashboard system to the motorcycle with a new concept called the Samsung Smart Windshield. It's a kind of heads-up--eyes slightly down, really--display that allows motorcyclists to keep their hands on the handlebars and still interact with their phones. The basic idea is that you connect your smartphone (via Wi-Fi and a dedicated app) to a device embedded in your bike that includes a projector. When you're on the road, the projector takes information from your smartphone and displays it in a semi-transparent view on the bottom of the bike's windshield. The Smart Windshield can display all kinds of content, including turn-by-turn navigation, email, messaging, and phone notifications.

Key Applications of the Smart IoT to Transform Transportation


The applications of the Internet of Things (IoT) have been growing dramatically in recent a few years. The smart IoT is dramatically accelerating the pace of innovation and transforming the way of operations in transportation and infrastructure. The ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected sensors and things, combined with artificial intelligence (AI) and big data analytics, can enable us to gather insightful knowledge, make real-time and even predictive computing to help us reaching better decisions and developing better plans to improve the safety, efficiency, and reliability of smart transportation. Here we take a look at some important applications of the IoT in intelligent transportation systems and smart cities. The human factor continues to be one of the main contributing elements to road accidents.
