Continental develops an head-up display for sports cars
Continental Engineering Services has developed the first ultra-compact, high-performance head-up display for integration into cockpits with limited installation space, such as in sports cars.
What has long been a standard feature in luxury series vehicles has so far been difficult to achieve in vehicles with special space requirements, such as sports cars.
By optimizing the virtual image size visible to the driver in the windshield and modifying the projection distance, the developers at Continental have succeeded in significantly reducing the space taken up by the HUD.
«Our compact head-up display allows highly accurate visualization of information on a projection area that is slightly smaller than in standard vehicles» explained Dr. Christian Trapp, senior manager of head-up displays at Continental Engineering Services.
