The paper presents a prototype Head Up Display interface which acts as an interactive infotainment system for rear seat younger passengers, aiming to minimize driver distraction. The interface employs an Augmented Reality medium that utilizes the external scenery as a background for two platform games explicitly designed for this system. Additionally, the system provides AR embedded information on major en route landmarks, navigational data, and local news amongst other infotainment options. The proposed design is applied in the peripheral windscreens with the use of a novel Head-Up Display system. The system evaluation by twenty users offered promising results discussed in the paper.
