Friday FISHER Fun: Could Augmented Reality be the Future of Snow Plowing?

HUD tech augmented reality

The Federal Highway Administration is looking to develop smart snowplows that are fully stocked with radar, GPS and heads-up display (HUD) technology. HUD technology is commonly used in military aircraft for displaying information on a transparent screen so pilots don’t have to look down. It’s quickly becoming more common in video games and automobiles.

Picture plowing with your XV2 like you’re in the driver’s seat of the coolest video game ever created. Do you think these augmented reality displays will help or hinder your ability to plow?
