Continental has developed digital head-up display for trucks and buses. It would help drivers to receive relevant driving information without having to take their eyes off the traffic. To be offered in two basic versions to vehicle manufacturers, the windshield heads-up display was developed for commercial vehicles popular in the USA, and have flatter windshields. The combiner heads-up display uses a transparent disc (combiner) in front of the windshield to reflect the image. This version is suitable for vehicles commonly used in Europe, and have steeply angled windshields. Explained Dr. Michael Ruf, head of the Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket business unit at Continental, that they see the head-up display as an important element of future human-machine dialogue for greater safety in commercial vehicles. It would also help the driver to receive advance information about driving manoeuvres planned by the vehicle during automated driving, he added.
