Designed to project critical driving information onto the windshield for drivers, the unit boasts nearly 24-inch of display projection. The HUD projects a virtual screen approximately three meters ahead of the driver, enabling the driver to more intuitively access key information about the vehicle and its surroundings without changing direction of gaze. The HUD can be used to display speed limits and the vehicle’s driving speed, but also the locations of pedestrians through external sensors. It also provides lane guidance assistance by using an automotive navigation system featuring an arrow indicating the appropriate lane to follow at junctions and intersections.
Additionally, the HUD takes into consideration the relative position of information displayed, its colors and other visual effects – all without obstructing driving.
Denso claims its display is brighter than conventional HUDs to ensure screen visibility in bright, daytime conditions. The new HUD will be released in November 2017 and will be designed into the new 2018 Lexus LS.
