The merging of windscreen and instrument panel that began with the first Head-Up Display will continue to advance. In future, both areas will function as one unit, as the interplay in the BMW VISION NEXT 100 already shows impressively.
The possibilities of communicating or retrieving information that is relevant to the driver via the windscreen will be almost unlimited in the future. And particularly by considering location-based services, data from social networks or even entertainment offers.
To summarize, we can probably expect the windscreen to remain with us for the next 100 years. As a basic splashguard but also as an interactive multimedia touchscreen control element.
