Do you want to be part of the HUD group? These should spark your interest:

A Head-up Display (HUD) is a projecting system that shows all relevant information for a car driver directly in their line of sight. This is done by projecting light into the driver’s eyes, which will perceive a virtual image, containing all this information, in front of the car, overlapped with the road.

Now we start a team who will be involved in new technologies for HUD and who will make the steps forward from new ideas to new concepts and products.
