    Abstract

    Contemporary Head-Down Display information portrayed by automotive 
    infotainment devices, while useful, is often ignored by the driver due to field of  view  limitations  associated  with traditional  instrumentation  panels.  The proposed  interface,  as  applied in a full-windshield  Head-Up  Display  system, aims  to  improve  the driver's situational  and  spatial  awareness  by  considering  information  as it becomes  available  from  various  sources  such  as  VANETs,  GPS and other vehicular sensors.  Effectively the vehicle's  windshield  transforms  to an augmented  reality  display  area  which  allows  the  system to present  crucial information  related  to  collision  avoidance  guidance  to  the  driver  in  typical  or adverse driving conditions. Opting for a simplistic  approach  of  interaction, the interface superimposed  on  the  actual  environment. This paper discusses the challenges involved in the HUD design, introduces the visual components of the interface and presents the outcome of a large scale evaluation of the system on a group of  forty drivers.
