Innovative head-up arrangement for a new Passat

Posted on 23. Jul, 2015 by in Volkswagen Canada

One of a highlights of a eighth Passat era is a new head-up display. It projects applicable outing information and alerts onto a high-quality slide-out mirror positioned directly in a driver’s margin of vision.

At a press of a button, a pure arrangement rises from a position behind a dashboard into a driver’s primary margin of vision. Speed, trade signs, a activity of a assistance systems and other functions are displayed on a 10 x 15cm surface. The arrangement has pin-sharp fortitude of 480 x 240 pixels.

Drivers can also have navigation information or alerts shown on a head-up display. The driver’s eyes sojourn on a road, with a on-screen information appearing to be dual metres in front of a vehicle. The advantage of this is that raised alerts into a driver’s evident margin of prophesy reduces greeting time. In addition, a driver’s eyes do not need to refocus so mostly from far-field to near-field vision.

Using a infotainment complement menu, a motorist decides that equipment of information are displayed (e.g. stream speed, speed limits, navigation information, etc.).

The head-up arrangement is activated by a apart control subsequent to a rotary light switch. When not in use, a arrangement disappears again – stable from dirt – inside a dashboard.
