What is the technology behind the modern fighter aircraft HUDs and how is that different from the technology behind the automobile HUDs? Also what would be the approx. cost difference between normal wind shields vs. HUD wind shield?
My 13 year-old Cadillac has a factory-installed HUD which projects on to the windshield, hooked up to a passive infrared detector which is located in the middle of the grille. It works great at night, especially when on dark and winding roads with deer and other critters lurking around.
Yes, and as Larry and 3DHUD point out, the HUD could be used to enhance dark objects on a dark night. That makes a lot of sense.
My purpose for chiming in again is to say that from what 3DHUD said, it appears that the HUD image is using the windshield as a screen, then, reflecting the image projected by the unit under the dashboard. Pretty clever. That eliminates anything special about the windshield.
@sheetal, I respectfully disagree. See my response in another thread. I think this will be helpful for drivers, as it can alert objects that the drivers might not have spotted. Besides, when we begin to have so many displays to deal with inside a car (instrument cluster, radio, backup view display, GPS, etc) having an intelligent screen, in HUD, to display ONLY the absolutely relevant information the driver needs at that ceritical moment makes sense.
@Larry, totally agree. If the HUD could help us drivers see better, by highlighting a pedestrian or a cyclist in the dark or rain, this is definitely worth it. Before I began looking into this, I was a total skeptic. But when I realized that the progress of HUD is moving ahead in lockstep with Advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), I realized that this is going to be not just practical but useful.
If you have seen the computer displays for self-driving cars you get the idea for what should show up on HUD displays for the driver. This could be an opportunity to focus the driver's attention on what they should be seeing rather than distract it with what they should not. Imagine a display that implements augmented reality to point out a pedestrian or bicyclist with color-coding to indicate the level of attention needed. I could see this as an intermediate step before full self-driving vehicles.
