When we think of virtual reality, the first thing that comes to mind is typically entertainment or gaming. But the uses of this technology go far beyond recreation. In fact, AR and VR devices are poised to revolutionize medicine with new clinical applications, tools, and treatments.

With displays in all corners of the vehicle, it's clear we’re on the verge of a new automotive era.

Today kicks off the 3rd annual Automotive Visual & Display Technologies (AVDT) event in Ann Arbor, Michigan (March 26-28), where leaders in automotive engineering, design, and manufacturing will discuss the next generation of car HMIs (human machine interfaces) and display integration. My colleague Matt Scholz presents a conference session this afternoon titled “New Measurement Methods to Solve Emerging Display Test Challenges.” (If you happen to be reading this blog from the show, check out Matt’s talk at 3:20 PM!) As I explore the AVDT agenda—with topics covering head-up displays to human-centric design and autonomous vehicles—it’s clear that we’re on the verge of a new automotive era...

Autonomous vehicle sensing

Sensing systems like LiDar, cameras, ultrasound, and radar are enabling the technology of self-driving (autonomous) vehicles. In this post, we take a look at LiDar (that uses laser pulses). Radiant's NIR camera lens can measure LiDar and other near-infrared emissions.

OLEDs are the pivotal technology that are (literally) changing the shape of displays. Since each OLED is individually lit, there is no backlight required, enabling a thin display that can even be rolled or folded, like a piece of paper. This flexibility has diversified the application of displays, making OLED the next target tech for major manufacturers.

Virtual reality systems can provide remarkably realistic images and experiences—like putting you right on the slopes of the Olympic games in South Korea. But VR, augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) devices rely on the quality of near-eye displays (NEDs) to deliver a seamless immersive experience. With images in close proximity to the human eye, even minor display defects are magnified, making display quality testing a critical step for product quality control. Learn about Radiant's new AR/VR lens for display testing that simulates the perception and perspective of the human eye.


Judging Display Quality: Humans versus Imaging Colorimeters
Author: Hubert Kostal |

Replacing human inspectors with imaging colorimeters is one way manufacturers can ensure improved, consistent quality in the displays leaving the factory. Imaging colorimeters replicate human visual perception, meaning they “see” light and color the way a human does. In other words, an imaging colorimeter is a digital human eye. It combines the accuracy of human vision with the high repeatability of an automated system. This combination makes an imaging colorimeter superior in inspection applications than its human counterpart. Here’s why...
