A Heads Up Display, or HUD, refers to any transparent display presenting data without requiring users to look away from their usual viewpoint. HUDs used to be restricted to the realm of video games, but as technology has advanced live HUDs are becoming part of reality with a variety of interesting potential applications.
A HUD can be integrated into different systems from an in vehicle display for augmented navigation helping drivers navigate their surroundings to products like Google Glass. Applications span from remote control of drones for military or exploratory uses to control for an entertainment system. With innovation in technologies such as gesture control, potential applications continue to expand.
The goal of this challenge is to develop and identify a key innovative application for HUD technology and outline the technological advances needed to successfully implement the technology for that purpose.
With your response please address the following aspects:
- The application you suggest for HUD technology.
- The reason that application is important, either in terms of business profitability or societal benefit.
- A description of the technological advances needed to make your innovation a reality
- OPTIONAL: a sketch of a model showing your application of HUD technology
