HEAD-UP DISPLAYS FOR AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS
This report reviews the literature on automotive head-up displays (HUDs) from a human-factors point of view. Four major topics are covered in this review: HUD display parameters, the designs of available HUDs, popular appraisals of HUDs, and human performance with HUDs. The most important display parameters are HUD location and HUD contrast with respect to the roadway. Several assessments of optimal HUD location have been made, and there is a consensus that HUDs should be located in the region where drivers make the majority of their eye fixations. The second section describes HUD hardware and available HUD systems. Popular perceptions of automotive HUDs are discussed in the third section of the review. Human performance with automotive HUDs is discussed in the final section of this review.
