Abstract:

For Phase I, Vuzix delivered a paper detailing specific trade-offs in the design of a Wide Field-of-View (WFOV), Waveguide-based, Head Mounted Display system. There was a path laid out for developing this WFOV system, but as a short term solution, Vuzix has proposed delivering a 30 to 35degree Field-of-View, full color, see-through, waveguided HMD system with the form factor of sunglasses. Vuzix will deliver a functioning, non-ruggedized prototype of this system by the end of Phase II. This shortened time frame allows for useful hardware to be available for field testing earlier than would otherwise be the case. The WFOV system may then be continued with the Phase II option where Vuzix proposes delivering a bench top demonstrator to show the WFOV concepts. This demonstrator would be built around a fully customized waveguide and will have a FOV that exceeds 45degrees.
