Description

A PERSONAL HEAD MOUNTED DISPLAY DEVICE

The present invention relates to a personal head mounted display device (hereinafter: "PHMD") .

Very often it is desirable to have a display system which can be carried on the head and be used in the open area and which enables the user to look both at its display and at the real out-side world. This is especially required in the following systems: a) observation systems; b) surveillance systems; c) moving map navigation systems; and d) Computerized C41 (control, command, communication computer and intelligence) systems.

Similar systems are known already as virtual reality systems in the entertainment field of virtual reality. These known systems comprise a printed electronic circuit board, electronic circuits, optical means and a display being either a cathode ray tube (CRT) or a liquid crystal display (LCD) . Said known systems are usually opaque and in the level of the eyes, i.e. one cannot see through them. Should they be transparent the light coming from the outside blinds the eyes and one cannot see through them. The known systems do not enable the user of same to look both at the display and at the real out-side world. Due to the fact that the known systems are, as indicated above, usually opaque and/or are designed to be used at the level of the eyes one cannot see through them i.e the wearer is living in a virtual world which is disconnected from the real world. The known systems are intended to be mainly used and operated in a closed surrounding e.g. a room, a hall, etc.

Moreover,when the known system is not used in a closed surrounding at day time the sun light entering from above, beneath and from the sides of the known system causes blinding the wearer and at night the light is projected from the display onto the user's face and therefore the wearer is lighted and can be easily identified which is not desired especially in military use. Thus the known system can essentially be used only in a closed surrounding and not in an open area.

There is so far not known any system which can be used in particular in the open area as said known systems cannot resist hard conditions such as shocks, vibrations, impacts, sand and dust harsh conditions, humidity and spray conditions. Moreover, said known system does not enable to be used to look both with both eyes at the system's display and at the real out-side world which is essential for the performance of the above system.

In addition said known devices are not entirely satisfactory in particular for users on the move. Thus, said devices are not sufficiently tight against the entrance of sun, dust, wind, etc. The tight closure is required when the PHMD should serve as sun, dust, wind goggles integrated with a display (hereinafter called "DSW-HMD") which are to be used in vehicular systems, e.g. tanks, armored vehicles, etc. and for soldiers.

It has therefore been desirable to design a system which overcomes the above disadvantages, i.e would be simple to manufacture and use, would not be too expensive and would have the required properties, e.g enable the user to look with both eyes under all conditions both at the display and at the real out-side world and resist the hard weather conditions which often occur.

In addition some of its embodiments should be able to serve as DSW-HMD and would be tight against the entrance of dust, sun, wind (DSW) etc., and could thus serve as DSW goggles and be easily removable from the face without requiring the removal of a helmet, if any.

The present invention thus consists in a personal head mounted display device ("PHMD") said device consisting of a housing being closed hermetically at all sides, within said housing being located: a. two displays; and b. two sets of optical means; the displays and the optical means being arranged in an angle between 1 and to about 30° above the horizon when the PHMD is worn; the displays and the optical means being connected one to each other in an appropriate manner; the displays being connected to electronic means, which electronic means being in turn connected to an electric power source; and to either a video signal source or to a computer VGA or SVGA output; the selection being regulated by a switch.

The housing may have the form of a cover. Said cover may have the form of, e.g. a cap-shade, or the like. The housing or cover may be put directly on the head or strengthened by any suitable means, e.g. straps. Said straps are advantageously, in particular when the device is a DSW-HMD, connected to each side of the housing suitably via grooves, holes, etc.

The preferred angle in which the displays and optical means are arranged above the horizon is 12-20°, advantageously 15°.

In a preferred embodiment of the PHMD according to the present invention the PHMD comprises below the cover a sealing mould and below the optical means a lower shelf.

In a preferred embodiment of the PHMD according to the present invention two valves are present. Said valves enable nitrogen washing in order to avoid internal humidity.

The housing of the PHMD according to the present invention may be made from any suitable opaque material, preferably a rigid and non-corrosive one such as e.g. a plastic material, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, ABS, etc.

The housing is advantageously surrounded by some padding material, e.g. a rubber material, a sponge, etc.

The displays of the PHMD according to the present invention may be selected, for example, among Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) systems, Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) systems, electro luminisc- ent (EL) systems or the like. Said displays have a resolution of at least 180,000 pixels, and comprise two half-mirrors and two optical concave lenses.

Should the displays be a LCD, the optical means and the displays may comprise, e.g. two fluorescent illumination panels.

When the PHMD according to the present invention serves as DSW-HMD the upper part of the housing comprises the two displays and the optical means; and the lower part of the housing comprises an optical visor. In this case the electronic means are located outside the device. The optical visor may have any suitable color. It is advantageously made from a laser and ballistic eye safe material.

There may be present in addition in the DSW-HMD, if desired, regular spectacles. Said regular spectacles are advantageously surrounded by the DSW-HMD.

In a preferred embodiment of the DSW-HMD the optical means and the displays are located in a half circled frame, part of which is a lower shelf on which rest the optical means and the displays.

The electronic means may be an integral part of the PHMD and in this case they are located in the housing.

However, as indicated above, when the PHMD is used as DSW- HMD electronic means are located outside the device and are suitably connected to the displays by a cable. In this case they are preferably located in a box in a stationary manner. However, in case that the user has to be mobile the box should be so dimensioned that it can be suitably carried on the back or on any other suitable part of the user.

The electronic means, advantageously comprise electronic circuits which may be located on a printed electronic circuit board, said circuits cause, when the display is a LCD, the lightning of the two fluorescent illumination panels. Said electronic means cause the reception of the input of the video signal and the scanning and the synchronizing of said signal on the display; and alternatively cause to interface and display a signal received from a PC VGA or SVGA output; the desired selection being regulated by a switch.

The electronic means should be connected in case that the PHMD is a DSW-HMD to the displays located in the housing; to a suitable electric power source, to a video signal source output and to a computer VGA output. Either of said output's may be actuated at the desired moment. This may be regulated by a switch causing the actuation of one of said outputs.

The electric power source may be any suitable electric power source, advantageously a DC voltage power source or a battery.

The video signal may be received via a wire or in a wireless manner. Said signal may be received from any kind of camera e.g. video camera, thermal imaging system, etc. which has a video output .

The signal from the VGA or SVGA output is received via a wire. The computer to be used may be any suitable P.C.

The PHMD is used, for example, as follows:

The user wears the PHMD on his head or in case of a DSW-HMD on his face, in this case the goggles may be worn below the helmet. When the user wants to look at the real out-side world he looks horizontally in front of him. When he wants to look at the displays he has to raise his eyes slightly upwards. The displays being connected to separate electronic circuits are illuminated either by 2 fluorescent illuminating panels (LCD) or by itself (EL) . The displays then projects the video image or the graphics of the computer to the half mirrors and from there to the lenses of the optical means and from there to the eyes of the user.

The present invention will now be illustrated with reference to the accompanying drawings, without being limited by them. Identical parts appearing in several drawings will be marked by the same numerals. In said drawings :
