In a statement, Epson Philippines said it introduced the new technology at the Singapore night race for the first time, to guests of Epson in the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS garage.

The company said its new smart glass technology aimed at enhancing trackside race hospitality experience through augmented reality.

According to Epson: “The MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS garage is the nerve center of the team’s racing operations and a hospitality tour of the garage provides an exclusive experience for guests of Official Team Partner, Epson, where they can experience a behind the scenes look at the functional areas, where racecar assemblies are prepared and where car performance is tracked and analysed.”

With the Moverio smart glasses, Epson said the viewers’ experience takes on a different visual dimension. “Projected contents are overlaid on the lenses of the glasses, showing team related content such as the anatomy of the racecar, race day roles of engineering staff, a pit stop explained in slow motion and more. Contextual content from videos to social media feeds can also be screened to display directly in front of viewers.”

“The combination of smart glasses and augmented reality technology today brings much potential to enhance the viewing experience of guests,” said Siew Jin Kiat, Regional General Manager (Southeast Asia), Visual Instruments, Epson Singapore.

“We look forward to delivering new and exciting visual experiences to viewers through Moverio, in partnership with our customers and independent software vendors,” Jin Kiat said.

As an Official Partner of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula OneT Team, Epson said it works closely with the team, leveraging its partnership to enhance the race viewing experience for its guests.

“The Moverio experience in the team garage will continue to be a regular feature for guests of future races,” Epson said. (Source: Spice.ph)
