BOTHELL, Wash., May 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Microvision Inc. (Nasdaq: MVIS), the leader in light scanning technologies, announced today that they will collaborate with Ford Research Laboratory on the design and development of next generation driver and passenger display systems for automotive use. The first project will demonstrate Microvision's light scanning display technology as a driver's heads-up (HUD) display, similar to those used in military and commercial aircraft. Microvision's light scanning displays are believed to provide the potential for world's brightest and only daylight readable augmented vision display in either monochrome or full-color. Such a display system would allow the driver to view transparent images for daytime navigation information as well as night vision imagery by projecting the images off of the windshield. "We continue to pursue exciting and large market opportunity applications for our display technology," commented Tom Sanko, Microvision's vice president for marketing. "In addition to our recently announced efforts to develop mini-rear projection displays for automobiles, our HUD development schedule will first focus on a proof of concept demonstrator. We believe our bright, high-resolution display enables multiple unique, flexible and valuable configuration possibilities for future automobile designs. We look forward to working with Ford on this exciting HUD development."
