Paper Abstract

As high technology products become more complex, the ability to convey information to the users in a clear and timely manner becomes more important. Display technologies that were originally developed to meet the demands of jet fighters have begun to filter down to commercial products such as automobiles and biomedical instruments. Head-up displays are particularly suited to the display of information such as warning symbols that must be conveyed immediately to the user without his active solicitation, and the display of information that has to be merged with other visual data. Specific head-up display applications and technologies are discussed in the tutorial. New technologies and system concepts are also being applied to head-down displays. Several examples of new head-down display systems are described that could increase the amount of information displayed while reducing the physical volume occupied; improve the optical efficiency; reduce the amount of focus readjustment required, or, provide three-dimensional image presentation. Automotive applications are used as examples but the principles apply to other industries as well. The application of holographic display technology is also emphasized.
