Aerial Imaging technology launched in Europe

Omron Electronic Components Europe is launching Aerial Imaging technology in Europe, allowing directions and other images to appear floating in the air in shopping malls, transport terminals and other locations. Commenting, Gabriele Fulco, European Product Marketing Manager Sensors of Omron said, “This is the future of signage. We believe that aerial imaging will become a commonly used feature of our cities and public spaces.

For example, easy-to-understand signs can be placed floating in the air by exits making it easier for visitors to find their way. Aerial imaging can also project information in front of products on display in a showcase.”

Using Omron’s Spatial Projection Display (SPD) technology, images can be projected anywhere and appear to be floating in the air. Earlier space projection technologies have required a large number of distinct components and are relatively large systems requiring substantial space to install.

Omron has used its light directivity and micro-fabrication technology developed through the LCD display and backlighting businesses to allow images to be projected into empty space with just one sheet of plate and a single LED. The sheets themselves are transparent, so are unobtrusive, thin and light for attaching to glass and other surfaces.

Omron is initially supporting 2D and 3D images with SPD technology. In future, it will introduce curved plexiglass panels that can be adapted to objects with shaped surfaces.
