Augmented reality coming in HUD with Continental Automotive
The AR-HUD was developed from the previous HUD, but now the reflected information appears exactly where the information becomes a part of the driving situation.
When navigating, for example, a virtual symbol inserted precisely into the exterior view shows the driver the way on the curve in front of the vehicle.
When distance controls (Adaptive Cruise Control, ACC) are enabled, a marking in the AR-HUD visualizes which vehicle in front is detected by the assistance system.
Continental is planning production readiness of an Augmented Reality Head-up Display in 2017.
