Corning Inc. has announced a new product category for its Automotive Glass Solutions in a new Augmented Reality Head-Up Display by Hyundai Mobis.
Head-Up Displays use mirrors to project driving information such as navigation and speed – which would normally be viewed from the instrument cluster – onto windshields, putting it directly within the driver’s line of sight. AR HUDs advance this technology by essentially turning the windshield into an immersive display screen, projecting large and dynamic images onto the road.
According to Corning Inc., in 2020, nearly 5 million cars sold had HUD technology. By 2025, that number is expected to double as major automakers quickly adopt AR technology to complement other enhanced connectivity features in automobiles.
