Huawei showcased its AR-HUD (Augmented Reality Head-Up Display) solution at the Munich International Automobile and Smart Mobility Expo in Germany. This new technology uses vehicles’ front windows as a display screen to provides a safer and enhanced driving experience.
Huawei has over 20 years of experience in the ICT optical field and applied that expertise in this latest AR-HUD solution. It integrates the optical black technology to provide smaller objects on larger frames in a UHD view.
Huawei AR-HUD mainly concerns three aspects that include graphical navigations for sound deriving, 3D information exposure for a better understanding of the surroundings, and anti-ghosting technology for an ultra clearer view. Its rich application scenario includes the following.
- Object Information Display
- AR Navigation
- Safety Assisted Driving
- Night Vision
- Rain and Fog Enhancement Prompt
- Audio-Visual Entertainment
Now, Let’s talk about the other three aspects in detail-
Graphical or AR Navigation:
The latest AR-HUD has a larger viewing angle of 13 z 15 degrees and 70-inches of the display frame. The object and environment details are shown on the bottom edge so it won’t block the driver’s view. Furthermore, it also provides navigation instruction in severe conditions.
Observing the surroundings, it can also recognize accurate details in night, rain, and fog. To be mentioned, the HUD was initially used in fighter planes to increase safety standards and for more precise navigation. Later, it made its way to the automotive field.
3D Information Display:
Moving ahead to the full HD vision, the Huawei AR-HUD can provide a maximum of 100PPD vision elimination the problem of low brightness, low contrast, and image deformity, unlike other HUDs. The high-definition streaming function lets the users enjoy seamless video calls and a tranquil experience in games.
Besides, it also offers audio-visual entertainment functions. In addition, using the real map POI the driver can also get info about parking areas, shopping centers, restaurants, and other utilities in real-time. Overall, it’s bringing high-profile driving experiences.
Anti Ghosting Technology:
The viewing attributes of Huawei’s AR-HUD features a large FOV volume ratio with a 10L volume. It not only solves the vehicle adapting for a variety of vehicles but solves the ghosting vertigo problem also. You can check the image comparison below-

Huawei implements a high-tech light path design and algorithm technology for a smoother graphic representation during object transmissions. It reduces the motion blur problem causes by the slow response of the screen. Besides, Huang Zhiyong who is Optical Applications President at Huawei believes that Huawei AR-HUD will be a breakthrough in traditional media with its safety standards and multi-functionality.
“Huawei AR-HUD uses innovative ODP optical display engine and spatial optical technology to break the limitations of traditional media and create a new experience of safe driving. The next stage of AR-HUD The development of higher definition and naked-eye 3D has created an unprecedented super horizon.
Huawei will continue to invest in the research and development of optical root technology, and create a wealth of optical application products to serve in vehicles and other fields so that optical capabilities can benefit all industries.” – Said the President
