A. Single Sensing Wearable Display Optical Engine and System 1. Single Sensing See-Through Optical Engine To develop a compact size optical engine with module size<10cc, light guild prism thickness<10mm, view angle 16 degree and optical brightness >500nits. Film based optical engine for light weight with optical weight reduction>4g compare with glass design. On top of the coaxial optical design, add an IR pattern light source with 12x9 optical resolution for optical tracking. 2. Single Sensing Wearable Display Driving System To develop an electrical driving board for single sensing wearable display driving system. The driving control module provides a pattern light source to the object and then use a sensing module to capture the image of the object (e.g. user's finger).The driving system includes: application processor with memory, power management module, wireless connectivity, display panel driver, light sensor and image sensor. 3. Embedded Single Sensing "Inspiration" Tracking Methodology To develop a low power embedded real time object tracking methodology for Single-Sensing Wearable Display. Such algorithm is developed to determine user’s natural touch behavior so as to understand user’s command and make interaction with user. Such algorithm will adopt IR pattern light with detection resolution ≥ 12x9, sensing accuracy ≤3mm and response time > 30fps B. Bi-Sensing Wearable Display Optical Engine and System 1. Bi-Sensing See-Through Optical Engine To develop a compact size bi-sensing optical engine with module size 8cc, thickness~10mm, view angle 20 degree and optical brightness>1000nits. Add an IR pattern light source with 24x18 optical resolution for optical tracking of both eye pupil and finger/object. 2. Bi-sensing Wearable Display Driving System To develop an electrical driving board for bi-sensing wearable display driving system. The software inside the on-board processor is able to perform recognition by collecting the information of human pupil and finger location. The driving system includes: application processor with memory, power management module, wireless connectivity, display panel driver, light sensor and image sensor. 3. Embedded Bi-Sensing eye "Inspiration" tracking methodology To develop a low power embedded real time eye pupil tracking and gaze detection methodology for Bi-Sensing Wearable Display. Together with the finger tracking and touch detection methodology, it will be faster and more robust to understand the user's intention and determine the user’s command for better interaction with user. Such algorithm will have the bi-sensing resolution ≥24x18, sensing accuracy ≤ 3mm and sensing response time >30fps. C. Large Field Of View (FOV)/wide eye-box See-Through Optical design To develop novel see-through optical design: work out the new design approach and complete the simulation of 1) large FOV using multi-layer waveguide which is targeted to meet 40 degree FOV, thickness <10mm and optical brightness >500nits;and 2) wide eye-box using off-axis deformable design which is targeted to meet eye-box size 120mmx60mm and optical brightness >10,000nits. D. Contract Service Deliverables with Customer (1) Non see-through type head mounted display engine design and two sets of prototypes To design and prototype a Non-See-Through optical engine based on the extending technology of film based polarization optics used in project deliverable A. It is targeted to meet >22 degree FOV, thickness <12mm and 720P resolution.

隨着谷歌、三星發佈創新的穿戴式產品并加快佈局感知運算在穿戴式產品上的應用，擁有智能感知能力的穿戴式裝置儼然已成為在電腦、手機之後的下一個主戰場．然而，目前在穿戴式產品上的感知能力非常有限，如Google Glass般的產品主要依靠語音進行識別，雖有外置的摄像頭，用於檢測、感知應用時，所需的圖像處理運算量非常大，在講求省電的穿戴式產品上并不可行．故此，具有感知功能的穿戴式顯示器依然停留在概念性產品的階段． 本計劃的研發重點是摒棄長久以來採用圖像處理進行識別的方式，利用有專利保護的自主研發的獨特光學器件實現光學式的超低功耗的檢測及辨識技術，從而在此基础上開發出新一代的具備眼球追踪、手式識別、物體檢測功能的智能穿戴式顯示產品． 本計畫成果將被植入於移動穿戴式顯示設備上，其嵌入式眼球跟蹤、手指跟蹤、觸摸檢測及物體檢測功能將會帶來全新的用戶體驗．該成果可被廣泛應用於汽車、航空、教育、醫療、通訊、互動媒體、旅遊、導航等產業．全球穿戴式顯示設備市場在2014年第二季度將達20萬件，預估2019年第一季度可達450萬件．本計劃致力於幫助香港及珠三角發展成爲穿戴式產品技術研發中心及核心元器件設備生産中心，並將惠及本地產業鏈，推動產業升級．
