The German technology company, Continental has developed first ultra-compact, high performance head-up display (HUD) in a project spearheaded by its own development and production service provider, Continental Engineering Services.
Apart from being suitable for integration into cockpits with limited installation space, such as in sports cars, it also provide visualisation of information in the driver’s field of vision, which is gradually becoming as the world is gravitating towards automated driving.
The increases the comfort and safety while driving in traffic jams, for instance, when the momentum and agility of a sports car is not utilized, the company claims.
“Our company head-up display allows highly accurate visualization of information on a projection area that is slightly smaller than in standard vehicles,” explained Christian Trapp, senior manager of head-up displays at Continental Engineering Services. “With the smaller outward field of vision, our new development is in line with the vehicle concepts of most manufacturers.”
The HUD offers all the relevant information directly in their field of vision – where and when it is needed. While the driver’s eyes remain focussed on the road, all-important information, such as warning messages and speed limits, can always be read.
Continental, with its HUD portfolio, provides, one of the key technologies for holistic human-machine interaction, and enables safe and comfortable communication between people, vehicles and their surroundings.
