Hyundai Creates Innovative New Head-Up Display

Hyundai has been innovating in impressive ways, promising to bring flying taxis to the world and releasing hydrogen-powered trucks. The automaker has its fingers in a lot of pies and is investing billions of dollars in new technologies as it uses its recent successes to build for the future, but some futuristic tech is already available in our time. In its release of the Ioniq 5, Hyundai briefly mentioned an 'Augmented Reality Head-Up Display', but now we've got some real details on this tech. Being billed as the world's first 'clusterless HUD', this new tech aims to improve safety while making better use of cabin space.


The cluster comes from Mobis (Hyundai's parts and service division) which invested in Envisics, a company from the UK that specializes in this sort of thing. What the system does is bring driving information like speed and rpm to the driver's eye level while also projecting navigation information. This is said to improve both safety and convenience and offers better visibility of info.

Side View Driving

The new HUD is divided into four display areas with three at the top and one at the bottom. The top display areas show speed, rpm, Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) info, and navigation, while the bottom display area shows more basic info like coolant temperature, distance to empty, warning lights, turn signals, and other auxiliary info.

This HUD has a 15-inch display, so it's quite large, but the optical glass installed in the dashboard is fixed in an angled frame that slopes towards the driver to ensure even better visibility. We'll have to wait to see if visibility of the road is impacted by the display, but our more pertinent concern is that sunlight streams may rob drivers of all necessary info if the new HUD system is meant to be see-through. It's unclear what kind of AR HUD the Ioniq 5 will have, but it seems that this may be a different system. Whatever car it ends up being fitted to, Hyundai continues to impress with new innovations. Here comes the future.
