Thanks For The Heads-Up!

Having a heads-up display not only looks cool in your car – it also improves driving safety. Continental’s HUD brings the future of driving to the present.

Have you ever had to look down at your instrument panel to check your speed while driving?

When you do, you feel like you need some time to recalibrate your vision to look at the instrument panel, which can be distracting.

In fact, your eyes need to readjust from the longer visual distance to the shorter distance – called “accomodation” – and then back again to the traffic around you.

If you were travelling at 90km/h – the speed limit on Singapore expressways – you would have covered some 25 metres in that half a second it takes for your eyes to adjust.

For cars equipped with Continental’s heads-up display (HUD), you’ll never have to look down at your instruments again.

Information is presented directly in your line of sight: anything from current vehicle speed to GPS navigation data is displayed right in front of you.

It’s displayed not as a static image but rather one that “floats” over the top of the hood. The information appears about two metres in front of the driver’s eyes, which reduces the accomodation time and therefore, the strain on the driver.
