    Abstract

    Head Up Displays (HUDs) have recently enjoyed substantial research attention due to their wide scope of application and promise of real time information superimposed in the external scene environment. To this end we developed a prototype HUD interface that could enhance driver’s spatial and situational awareness under low visibility conditions. The system’s effectiveness was evaluated using two different simulation methods: a non-immersive (2D) and a semi-immersive (VR) driving simulator. In order to validate the results of our previous research on the effectiveness of our proposed HUD interface, we conducted a comparative study of the results derived from both simulators. Particular emphasis has been placed on the impact that the two simulation techniques had on drivers’ preferences with regard to the interface’s functionalities.
