Head-Up Displays


Our Head-Up Displays (HUD) project the essential information directly into the driver’s field of vision without restricting it. The driver’s concentration remains on the road ahead, this not only contributes to higher safety, it also reduces eye fatigue by decreasing the demand of switching focus between the road and instruments.


  • Relevant information is moved to the driver’s field of vision
  • Driver fatigue is reduced by removing the need to switch focus
  • Safety is increased because the driver’s eyes remain on the road
  • Had-up displays are a key technology in human-machine communication as they enhance safety and comfort

Available Technologies

Combiner HUD

Projected on a transparent surface independent of angle and geometery of the windshield

Windshield HUD

Projected directly on the windshield

Augmented Reality HUD

Seamless integration of warnings and messages in the surrounding

Compact Windshield HUD

  • Special Head-Up Display for sports cars
  • Ideal technology particularly suitable for vehicles with limited installation space
  • Outstanding display quality and reliable visualization despite compact design
  • Packaging ~2 liters
  • Weight: <1 kg
  • Super bright display with 10.000 cd/m²
  • Field of View: 4 x 1.2 degrees
  • Projection Distance: approx. 2 meters
  • Head-up displays are a key technology in human-machine communication as they enhance safety and comfort

Platform Combiner HUD

  • Generic Combiner Head-Up platform allows for a cost efficient solution and quick time-to-market
  • Targetted for non-automotive application
  • Packaging volume 1.5-3 liters
  • High brightness and contrast (10.000 cd/m²)
  • Ideal also for retrofit application (dashboard mount)

Augmented Reality HUD

  • In the near future augmented reality (AR) head-up displays will help to make driving even more comfortable and safe. Compared to traditional windshield HUD, the image is enriched with a layer of information right on the street in front of the car. When navigating, for example, a virtual symbol inserted precisely into the exterior view marks the route that the driver should follow on the road ahead.
  • The waveguide technology is an innovative technology currently under development that will help realize head-up displays with drastically reduced packaging volume. It will need less space while at the same time providing a larger image with all the relevant information.
  • The augmented reality HUD is a key technology for automated driving

Augmented Reality Glasses

  • Augmented Reality can also be realized using special AR glasses without profound intervention in the dashboard and the need for a large invest in tools.
  • HMI content will be adjusted to the head position of the user
  • AR glasses are a versatile technology suitable for a variety of applications: Automotive, 2Wheeler, Aviation, Marine, Production and Industry.
  • Our Electronics and Software solution builds the bridge between
    • your vehicle system (ADAS, ACC, Navigation, etc.),
    • external sensors (head, vehicle and eye tracking, leap motionsystem)
    • and the augmented reality glasses.
