Comparative Study of Prototype Automotive HUD vs. HDD: Collision Avoidance Simulation and Results 2008-01-0203

Often the level of the driver's control over the vehicle is qualitatively compromised due to the plethora and the ineffectiveness of driving interface designs. This research effort focuses on the development of a prototype Head-Up Display (HUD) interface that can complement the driver's decision-making process rather than replace it, and decrease response times under adverse weather and traffic conditions. The evaluation of the proposed system was conducted over 40 user trials using a driving simulator. In this paper we present a succinct overview of the HUD system and comment on the headway results derived from a comparative study between the HUD and a contemporary instrumentation panel.
