Meet HUDWAY Glass a universal heads-up display (HUD) for any car. HUDWAY Glass is a neat lightweight smartphone mount with a reflective plastic lens. The lens is tinted and covered with layers of reflective coating to ensure perfectly crisp and comfortably magnified reflection.
Turns any smartphone into a head-up display (HUD) for any car. Glass transparency allows for a clear road view so you are not distracted from the actual road. The reflected image is discernible in any visibility (day and night). We have been tirelessly working on improving safety and comfort of drivers while behind the wheel for over three years. By now, over one million drivers have tried our app, and weve been frequently getting emails of appreciation from our customers.We even have an amazing story about how our app saved a life of one person. HUDWAY app was initially designed for use in low visibility conditions. We introduced the early prototype of HUDWAY Glass at CeBIT 2015 in Hannover for the first time. It is a simple accessory, which turns any smartphone into a head-up display. Moreover, it eliminates many issues associated with projecting an image onto a windshield, including doubling of the image, lack of reflection during daytime, image size and a few others. We received very positive response from potential customers, dealers and retailers, as well as from many major representatives of the automotive industry. Please see our latest hands on video. It is super easy to use. Step 1: Use any smartphone to start any app that supports HUD mode.
Step 2: Place your smartphone on a cradle with its display up. Step 3: You are all set to go! We recommend you start by using the following apps. Is our own app specifically designed to assist drivers when navigating in low visibility conditions on rural or remote roadways. Here is a demo video of the app.
HUD Widgets app - s. Et of handy and popular navigation widgets, like speedometers, trip info, landmeter, weather, eco-driving, etc.
All widgets work in regular or head-up display (HUD) mode. Navmii app is also offering good offline maps (worldwide) for navigation and neat info visualization in HUD mode. Is a navigation app offering global offline maps and supporting HUD mode.
Is the most popular navigation app for China, which supports HUD mode, too. You can always find more apps by searching HUD in app stores. App stores have been showing a stable growth of the navigation and infotainment apps offering HUD (Head-Up Display) mode. Below is just a few of them, designed to reduce attention split and get all the navigation information right on the windshield. There are 600 million people in the world who get behind the wheel of a car every single day.According to the researches, approximately 75% of them get distracted while driving it could be just drinking coffee, talking to a child in the back seat, reaching for the glove compartment, changing a radio station, and so on... We talk, read, type, tweet, check and search... We do selfies and share pictures. We even do video conference calls while driving!
This is especially dangerous when driving in low visibility conditions such as rain, fog, snow or just darkness... We are nearly driving blind and trying to multitask with checking directions on our smart phones. That is when bad things happen.Indeed, based on official reports, 22% of all auto accidents happen because of a driver multitasking and/or low visibility conditions that is 750 deaths a day worldwide. Automakers are certainly aware of this problem and they are looking for solutions.
One of them head-up displays (HUDs) can significantly improve the situation. With HUDs, drivers see information they need right on the windshield, which allows them to be totally focused on the road at all times. It allows drivers to focus on the road, keep their hands on the wheel and mind on driving.
Today, the market offers two main HUD options for cars. There are more and more cars manufactured with built-in HUD displays. It is estimated that by 2020, 9% of all new cars will be equipped with HUD displays (currently it is just 4%). These HUDs have an excellent image quality and on-board computer integration.
This kind of device is often equipped with a display (or pico projector), sensors, special optics, and wires to connect to the car or just for charging. Were offering an alternative to these options.Weve invented a car accessory for a smartphone that turns it into a head-up display. We can make a HUD affordable for anyone. The crux is in the glass. Its the main HUDWAY Glass component a plastic lens, very lightweight and of low fragility, which means that cuts are unlikely even if it gets broken. The glass has an aspheric shape, which allows to get a 20% larger image while at the same time minimize spherical, comatic, and chromatic aberrations. In other words, when looking through the curved glass you still see the road as it is, with no distortions. A thin multilayered glass coating is a secret sauce of HUDWAY Glass and its important feature. Its main purpose is to enhance the reflective properties of the glass and preserve its transparency, so that your view of the road is never obstructed.
Knowing that all vehicles are different, we realized we couldnt offer a single universal mount to suit any car. Apart from variations in dashboard shapes and sizes, vehicles differ in drivers seating position.Even your height matters as it dictates the angle in which you look at the road. We made two simple dashboard mounts one compact, the other adjustable, allowing for a pretty wide range of the angle.
A very easy snap on mechanism to attach the cradle to mounts. We came to these design solutions after several tries of creating prototypes. Indeed, this is the best and most reliable way to thoroughly study any issue. We used home 3D printers for some of the intermediate prototypes.
However, all major modifications were tested on the prototypes produced by industrial printers. It allowed for excellent printing quality and accuracy the prototypes margin of error against CAD blueprints was within 0.1%. Navigation systems available today are still proving to be unsafe, diverting driver attention and focus away from the most important task in driving eyes on the road.
Current navigation systems require that drivers read and interpret data and/or listen to audio commands which has been shown to take an average time of 5 seconds for a typical adult driver. Not surprising, it is 3 seconds more than what is considered a safe-time by various safety studies. Keeping in line with proven safety studies by NASA and other government-sponsored research on driver safety technology, head-up display (HUD) based navigation technology has quickly become safer and more effective road guidance method.
HUD navigation keeps drivers' visual attention on the road while being guided. It also eliminates auditory distraction, which can force a driver to shift attention from paying attention to visual cues to simply listening to directions and back, a proven distraction factor.
In short, HUD-based systems can be much more intuitive in delivering navigational information than the traditional displays while keeping the driver safe.
