Paper Abstract

This paper presents a simple, inexpensive design of a helmet-mounted color display system. The sys-tem can be mounted on a variety of helmets, including a bicycle helmet. Color LCD displays are used. The optical decisions are discussed as well as limitations of the system. The entire helmet-mounted system cost about $1000 to build using off the shelf, readily available hardware, with the exception of the Polhemus tracking device. Issues of depth perception are discussed. Predictive tracking is implemented using a simple Kalman filter.
