MicroVision, Pioneer to Commercialize Laser Displays

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 13, 2010 — MicroVision Inc. and Pioneer Corp. will work together to develop display engines and display engine subsystems for consumer and in-vehicle head-up displays (HUD) using MicroVision’s PicoP laser display technology, the companies announced recently.

Earlier in the year, the two companies developed a joint agreement to develop two critical components of the PicoP display engine: a laser light source module using direct red, blue and green lasers and a separate display engine subsystem based on MicroVision’s PicoP laser scanning technology.

Both new components are key in the next-generation PicoP display engine, which can be embedded in products that range from cell phones and eyewear to airplanes and automobiles.

The new agreement has established a framework for a future manufacturing and commercial distribution agreement for PicoP-based display engines to be used in consumer, after-market and embedded automotive products.

Pioneer said it will target commercial introduction of an in-vehicle HUD using PicoP technology in the consumer market in 2012. 

“We believe that by combining our respective market and product development capabilities, and leveraging best practices in manufacturing, MicroVision and Pioneer can accelerate introducing next-generation laser display products while reducing the total cost for both companies in getting there,” said Alexander Tokman, Microvision president and CEO.
