    Abstract

    This paper introduces a novel design approach for an auto motive full-windshield Head-Up Display (HUD) interface which aims to improve the driver’s spatial awareness and response times (RTs) under low visibility conditions. The proposed HUD design aims to enhance the quality and in crease the quantity of information provided to the driver in such adverse circumstances, by utilising the vehicle’s sensors. Further, the HUD interface elements are based on minimalist visual representations of real objects, which shortens the learning curve and offers a compact form of in teractive guidance for motorway environments. This paper discusses the challenges involved in the HUD design, intro duces the visual components of the interface and presents the outcome of a preliminary evaluation of the system on a group of forty users, as conducted using a driving simula tor. The initial evaluation reveals great promise in the sys tem with results indicating reduced RTs and greater driving stability.
