At the 66th International Motor Show Commercial Vehicles in Hanover, Continental will present, among other products, its new head-up displays for truck and bus applications under the slogan ‘Tradition. Trust. Transformation’. The major advantage of head-up displays is that drivers receive relevant driving information without having to take their eyes off the traffic. Continental supplies two basic versions of the HUD to vehicle manufacturers. The windshield HUD is specially developed for the commercial vehicles popular in the US, which have flatter windshields. By contrast, the combiner HUD uses a transparent disc (combiner) in front of the windshield to reflect the image. This version is suitable for vehicles commonly used in Europe, for example, which have steeply angled windshields.
“Digitalisation is a tremendous opportunity for the transport industry. It makes innovations such as the head-up display or automated driving possible and ensures greater safety and efficiency on the road,” said Nikolai Setzer, Member of the Executive Board at Continental.
