Augmented Reality Ship's Bridge From Rolls Royce

Rolls Royce is designing an augmented reality ship's bridge for large cargo ships.


(Rolls Royce concept ships bridge)

Imagine yourself as the captain of a cargo ship in the year 2026. You walk into your bridge, the floor-to-ceiling windows that double as your HUD lighting up to greet you. In an instant, all of the information on your ship and ships nearby are on display, alongside warnings for possible concealed obstacles. You have complete control over your vessel. Even after day turns to night, thermal cameras aid your crew in keeping the ship steering along the safe path. This is the vision for ships with AR and Rolls Royce/VTT advanced future tech.

SF readers remember the classic concepts of Golden Age science fiction writers like E.E. 'Doc Smith, whose 3D Tank Display from his 1934 novel Triplanetary influenced the design of WWII warship Combat Information Centers.

Every space-ship within range of her powerful detectors was represented by two brilliant, slowly moving points of light; one upon a great micrometer screen, the other in the "tank"--the immense, three-dimensional, minutely cubed model of the entire Solar System.

Update; I found a video for the Rolls Royce ship's bridge concept. Enjoy!End update.
