KYOCERA Unveils Concept Car II "Moeye"

"Through Moeye, Kyocera has developed a surprising, exciting, and priceless new transportation experience with a futuristic cockpit and original vehicle design," says Masahiro Inagaki, Kyocera Corporation Senior Executive Officer, General Manager, Corporate R&D Group.


Kyocera's latest open innovation project, Concept Car II "Moeye," showcases the company's unique technologies to optimize the driving experience and engage various human senses - sight, sound, touch, and smell.


One of the remarkable features of the car is the optical camouflage technology "Transparent Cockpit" that Kyocera realized in collaboration with Prof. Masahiko Inami from the University of Tokyo's Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology.


Using this optical camouflage technology the passenger can see a virtual 3D image of the road ahead projected onto the dashboard, rendering it functionally transparent to widen the passenger's field of vision.


"We will continue research and development on devices and technologies that contribute to enhanced safety and comfort in the era of automated driving and MaaS", Mr. Inagaki says.
