With DENSO's new Heads-Up Display (HUD), a driver can look directly out the front windshield of the car keeping an eye on the road and simultaneously see the vehicle's speed displayed in a virtual image on the windshield.
DENSO's HUD reduces driver eye fatigue because eye movement between watching the road and checking the vehicle's speed is much less than that required in a vehicle without a heads-up display. In that situation, the driver must constantly switch his eyes from the road down to the speedometer mounted on a standard instrument cluster.
This heads-up display features a double TN LCD with a reflected image distance of 1.9m. Its image size is 29mm x 66mm with an intensity of 3000Cd/m2.
