WayRay raises $80M Series C of investment from the automotive, electronics companies and financial investors


Navion is the first holographic AR navigation system for cars. It displays route information in augmented reality. The AR interface is visible at a comfortable 30-foot distance ahead of the car, with information seamlessly integrated into the real world. This allows the driver to stay focused on the road and makes driving safer. Navion creates a real AR experience without any eyewear or headgear.

Navion consists of a projection system and a visor with an embedded holographic optical element. The device is compact and mounts onto the car’s dashboard. Both the device and the content displayed do not distract the driver.


Navion visualizes navigation elements, route information, relevant POIs, and more via a multicolored AR interface. The native app adds functionality via smartphone. The app is available for iOS and Android.

FOV — the wide field of view permits a larger virtual image where AR content is displayed in the driver’s line of sight.

Holographic optical element (HOE) — an optical element that is produced using holographic imaging processes or principles. WayRay’s HOE is a photopolymer film that retains the properties of a periodic nanostructure after the recording process. The integral parameters of this nanostructure give WayRay’s HOE unique specifications, unlike any other HOE on the market.
