  • Publication number: 20220073089
    Abstract: An operating system for a motor vehicle includes an interface having an operating surface and a projector configured to project display content onto the operating surface of the interface. The interface is a portable item freely movable in the motor vehicle. The operating system further includes a capturing device configured to determine an inclination vector of a relative inclination of the operating surface with respect to the projector, and an image processing device configured to generate the display content by graphically distorting an original display content by use of a predetermined pre-distortion function based on the determined inclination vector. The pre-distortion function is set inversely to an optical distortion that occurs due to the relative inclination of the operating surface during the projection of the display content onto the operating surface.

  • Publication number: 20210370966
    Abstract: A first information processing apparatus and a second information processing apparatus communicate with one another. The first information processing apparatus has a first communication device and the second information processing apparatus has a second communication device. The first information processing apparatus displays combined state information of the first and second information processing apparatuses on a first display device, such that the combined state information of the first and second information processing apparatuses is superimposed with surroundings information on the first display device. The second information processing apparatus displays the combined state information of the first and second information processing apparatuses on a second display device.

  • Patent number: 11145009
    Abstract: A method for supporting a user in an agricultural activity with a control arrangement that has a mobile device and a server application which communicates with the mobile device. The control arrangement executes an augmented reality routine in which a real-world image generated by a camera and at least one item of added information are displayed in a visually superimposed manner on the mobile device. The server application has a plurality of application modules with which a predefined agricultural scenario is associated, and an amount of added information is stored in the database for each agricultural scenario. The control arrangement automatically determines in which of the predefined agricultural scenarios the mobile device is situated, and a partial amount of the amount of added information stored in the database for the determined agricultural scenario is shown on the display depending on at least one object depicted in the real-world image.

  • Publication number: 20210221227
    Abstract: At least one electronic display has first and second mirrors separated by a distance. The two mirrors are arranged such that they at least partially overlap in a projection view of both mirrors. An intermediate space is formed in the overlap region between the mirrors. The at least one electronic display is part of a display apparatus having at least one light source emitting light into the intermediate space that is reflectable multiple times by the mirrors to generate an infinity mirror effect, resulting in the generation of an image having a light pattern that appears with an optical depth effect in an image plane of the display apparatus.
