Head-up display technology has transformed from CRT-based to LED-based one; and then optic waveguide-based and now MEMS-based scanning laser HUDs are planning to enter the market. MEMS scanning laser HUDs are the most advanced products and can project the image with better resolution and more clarity. Pico projector has increased the quality of the image. MEMS-based pico projectors are very compact and can be adjusted into a small place as well. Voice recognition, gesture control, and 3D are the latest trends in HUD. Substitute technology such as HMD is a big restraint for HUD.
HUD was introduced in early 1940s, but it was used on mass level in military aviation after World War II. In 1990s, most commercial airlines started using HUD. Today, HUD is an integral part of military and civil aviation sector. Similarly, HUD is more than two decade old technology in automotive. However, of late, it has started gaining popularity and car OEMs have launched their HUD-featured models. Many car OEMs are likely to follow them, and we will see more models in near future. So far it is projected as a feature of high-end cars, like luxury cars and sports cars. Furthermore, HUD is likely to be a part of mid-segment cars. With large volume of mid segment cars, the HUD market will grow rapidly, and this will transform into a huge market. Apart from North America and Europe, APAC and ROW will also provide large market for HUD.
On aircraft avionics systems, HUDs typically operate from dual independent redundant computer systems. They receive input directly from the sensors (pitot-static, gyroscopic, navigation, etc.) aboard the aircraft and perform their own computations rather than receiving previously computed data from the flight computers. On other aircraft (the Boeing 787, for example) the HUD guidance computation for Low Visibility Take-off and low visibility approach comes from the same flight guidance computer that drives the autopilot. Computers are integrated with the aircraft systems and allow connectivity onto several different data buses, such as the ARINC 429, ARINC 629, and MIL-STD-1553.
Typical aircraft HUDs display airspeed, altitude, a horizon line, heading, turn/bank, and slip/skid indicators. These instruments are the minimum required by 14 CFR Part 91.
