This work introduces a novel design for an automotive full-windshield head-up display (HUD) interface which aims to improve the driver’s spatial awareness and response times under low visibility conditions. To fulfil these requirements, we have designed and implemented a working prototype of a human–machine interface (HMI). Particular emphasis was placed on the prioritisation and effective presentation of information available through vehicular sensors, which would assist, without distracting, the driver in successfully navigating the vehicle under low visibility conditions. The proposed interface is based on minimalist visual representations of real objects to offer a new form of interactive guidance for motorway environments.
