Denso develops world’s largest projection size TFT LCD Head-up Display
Denso has developed the world’s largest projection size TFT LCD Head-up Display (HUD). HUD technology projects important information such as vehicle speed, onto the windshield so drivers can obtain critical information while keeping their eyes on the road. Denso’s new HUD can coordinate with sensor-based technologies to inform drivers the presence of pedestrians ahead. The new HUD also can coordinate with vehicle navigation and can project virtual directions and lane guidance on the windshield to provide information to the driver more quickly and naturally.
Head-up Display is among one of the Human Machine Interface (HMI) solutions that Denso is researching and developing to help reduce driver workload. Currently the company is researching how to quantify driver workload to create a better system solution for its customers. Denso will exhibit the new HUD in its booth at the 19th Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress 2012 in Vienna, Austria, Oct. 22-26, 2012. Denso plans to introduce the new larger-display HUD to the global market in the 2015 timeframe.
