EMIRAI 3 xDAS
One more concept electric car was presented at the 2016 CES in Las Vegas - the EMIRAI 3 xDAS.
It's not related to Mirai (as the "eMirai" name might suggest) - it's a technology demonstrator developed by Mitsubishi Electric (previous version was shown in 2013).
The main content here is the next-generation driving-assistance technology.
Whether we will see some of these solutions in Mitsubishi cars or other brands that uses Mitsubishi Electric stuff, only time will tell:
EMIRAI 3 xDAS Multi-Bonding display
Human Machine Interface HMI (1) Multi-bonding display - LCDs panels on the dashboard and center console are laminated with and optical bonding process for high visibility and operability, as well as aesthetic harmony with vehicle interiors. - Larger images are achieved without larger LCDs by narrowing the widths between separate displays. - High-visibility panels reduce reflections thanks to optical-bonding and optical-design technologies. - Display items can be changed according to user preferences. Cloud content synchronization and selectable contents layouts enable drivers to create highly personalized interiors.

(2) Minimized eye movement - In-vehicle equipment can be operated without having to look at the display. The operator’s hand profile and motions are detected for simplified adjustment of air temperature and music volume. - Wearable device vibrates to notify specific passengers of information, etc. as required. - Overwrite input function, which was co-developed with Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, allows the driver to write on top of characters without confirming each time.
(3) Combiner 3D Head-up display (HUD) - The HUD, which appears in the combiner provides three-dimensional images of objects up to more than 10 meters ahead of the driver so that the driver can keep their eyes on the road ahead. - 3D imaging with binocular disparity on Head-up Display. - Adjusts the display’s position in the combiner according to specific situations, such as when turning driving on an expressway, etc., for safer, easier driving.

Driver sensing - The driver’s operating condition is sensed with a camera and a cardiograph that is based on a non-contact cardiograph co-developed with the National University Corporation Kyushu Institute of Technology. The driver’s face direction and line of sight are sensed via a camera. - Safe-driving support and predictive assistance based on driver behavior. - Proactive analysis of map data, for example, to identify intersections with poor visibility, and then display side-camera views looking up and down the cross street. Further, the system learns to react automatically whenever the same location/situation is reencountered.
Telematics - A cloud-based application analyzes the driver’s physical condition by comparing current behavior with past behavioral data stored in the cloud. If fatigue is detected, suitable rest stops are recommended.
- Collects and shares information on dangerous locations. Also provides remote control of home appliances.
