Smartglasses Light Drive

BML500P

The Bosch Smartglasses Light Drive provides a complete, ready-to-use solution for smaller, lighter, more stylish smartglasses. The solution is also compatible with curved and corrective lenses. This all-in-one smartglasses system delivers a highly intuitive user experience as a convenient display extension, providing an alternative to smartphone or smartwatch screen checking. The light drive is composed of a technology stack of Bosch optical, computing, and sensor components. The optical systems include microelectromechanical system (MEMS) mirrors with ASIC controller that precisely direct a low-power beam of light to the user’s eye. This technology paves the way for a day without digital fatigue. The system displays the perfect balance of

  • just-in-time hands-free information in a minimalist format
  • navigation, calls, and notifications
  • alarms, calendar reminders
  • messaging platforms such as WhatsApp and WeChat
  • everyday note-based information like to-do and shopping checklists
  • privacy, for your eyes only, invisible to others
