We propose an indirect-vision, video-see-through augmented reality (AR) cockpit that uses telexistence technology to provide an AR enriched, virtually transparent view of the surroundings through monitors instead of windows. Such a virtual view has the potential to enhance driving performance and experience above conventional glass as well as head-up display equipped cockpits by combining AR overlays with images obtained by future image sensors that are superior to human eyes. As a proof of concept, we replaced the front windshield of an experimental car by a large stereoscopic monitor. A robotic stereo camera pair that mimics the driver's head motions provides stereoscopic images with seamless motion parallax to the monitor. Initial driving tests at moderate speeds on roads within our research facility confirmed the illusion of transparency. We will conduct human factors evaluations after implementing AR functions in order to show whether it is possible to achieve an overall benefit over conventional cockpits in spite of possible conceptual issues like latency, shift of viewpoint and short distance between driver and display.
