Bosch’s Virtual Visor is basically a transparent digital sun visor that consists of a translucent LCD display connected to an interior monitoring camera that detects the position of the driver’s eyes. Using intelligent algorithms, this device analyzes the information and darkens only the portion of the windshield through which the sun would dazzle the driver, without reducing visibility.

When the Virtual Visor senses glare or too much brightness, the integrated LCD film goes dark, or to be more specific, the hexagonal matrix of dark pixels shifts around as your face moves, casting a shadow on your eyes to reduce glare, while the rest of the visor remains transparent. The prototype was demonstrated at CES 2020, and as you can see (below), it does a good job at tracking one’s face.
