Quirky Mitsubishi EMIRAI 3 xDAS concept shown-off in Tokyo

Previewing the next-generation of safety and in-car tech, the EMIRAI 3 xDAS stars on the Mitsubishi Electric stand in Tokyo

This is the new Mitsubishi EMIRAI 3 xDAS concept. Just one in a series of wacky concept cars from the Japanese manufacturer appearing at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.

Previewing the next-generation of driving assistance systems and technology, the EMIRAI 3 xDAS comes fitted with a raft of tech promising to ‘enhance the safety and comfort of driving.’

The interior has been kitted out with three LCD panels and a 3D head-up display in place of the a traditional instrument cluster, which relays back vehicle information. Mitsubishi has also narrowed the width of the screens and reduced reflections thanks to optical-bonding and optical-design technologies. Personalised content can also be displayed.  

To help keep the driver's eyes on the road, wearable devices recognized by the car can sense the driver’s movements. It allows them to use gesture control adjust the in-car temperature and music volume as well as giving them a warning in the form of a vibration to alert them of any issues with the car.

The car can also sense which way the driver is facing, analyse the road ahead, identify junctions with poor visibility and provide the driver with visual support on the LCD screen to aide visibility.   

A cloud-based application can also analyse the driver’s behavior and physical condition and compare it to previous data stored. If the car detects fatigue it recommends suitable rest stops for the driver.
