Paper Abstract

A high performance multiple color automotive head-up display system using a holographic element embedded within a standard automotive windshield is described. The system uses an optical system designed to compensate the aspheric curvature characteristics of the windshield and to project the display ahead of the vehicle. The image source is a high contrast transmissive liquid crystal display illuminated with a high intensity white light source. The display is clearly visible against all ambient light conditions tested. The system has been designed for volume production.
