How Augmented Reality Will Project A New World Onto Our Windshields

Will bringing more digital information to our displays make driving safer, or make us even more distracted?

FLUX is a new series that explores technological innovations in mobility and how they will affect our roads, our cities and our relationship to both.

In the sixth episode of FLUX, host Anthony Morgan investigates how the automakers introducing augmented reality into vehicles must balance a desire for more real-time insights and the risk of information overload. Speaking with Dr. Isabel Pedersen, Professor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, we look at the influence of augmented reality, how it will change our view of the road, and whether or not this new digital interface will steer us off course.
