Technology evolved a lot in the last few years. One of the highlights is the in-car infotainment system, but there are a lot of other elements available in a multitude of cheap, basic cars. Here we have to mention the well-known head-up or HUD. You might wonder on how it works and so well, they project the basic information onto a screen located in front of the driver. This way it offers the impression that whatever you see appears to be around 7 feet ahead. Here we actually talk about the speed, sat-nav information or a safety alert. This seams to be a great solution offered for drivers to help them stay focused on the road. This will actually help them stay with the eyes on the road as this is one of the main causes for accidents. When it comes to the active safety aid the HUDs are available on all cars of all sizes and these actually come in very handy in warning the driver. These also bring useful warnings on the screen to warn the driver or bring up important messages as quickly as possible. There are in fact a lot of manufacturers that use these types of technologies. Here we have to mention BMW, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and GM. Just for our information, different sources tell us that the number of HUD-equipped vehicles is set to reach 9.1 million by 2020, which has as equivalent 9 % of the total number of cars sold. This percent was different in 2012 reaching almost 2 %. The other detail we have managed to find refers to the cost per unit that is around $1.000 more in comparison to the average value of current infotainment systems. This is all we know for now, but do not go very far.
