Lausanne, Switzerland (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
Significantly enhancing the capabilities of its first generation automotive Head Up Display (HUD) architecture, Lemoptix, a Lausanne, Switzerland-based company, is demonstrating its latest HUD prototype at the upcoming IAA 2013 automotive tradeshow held in Frankfurt, Germany, September 12-22.
“Scanning MEMS-based laser projection displays are the future of automotive HUDs”, says Marco Boella, CEO of Lemoptix. “Lemoptix consistently hears that from leading automakers and tier 1 suppliers, many of which the company actively engages with. Automakers increasingly view HUDs as must-have automotive safety tools which reduce drivers’ distraction. Lemoptix' second generation HUD prototype not only addresses their technical needs and desires; it also leapfrogs existing HUD products and designs in terms of resolution and brightness.”
Nicolas Abelé, Lemoptix CTO, adds that, “This second generation HUD prototype represents a technology breakthrough. It has a field of view of 12.8 degrees horizontally and 3 degrees vertically. Resolution has increased to 1024 x 240 pixels, representing an angular resolution of 80 pixels per degree. The viewed image size is 50cm x 12cm at 2.25m distance from the viewer, and a virtual image luminosity of 40,000 cd per sq. m.”
The Lemoptix HUD prototype will be demonstrated on September 12 and 13 by appointment only at Frankfurt Marriott Hotel (adjacent to the IAA tradeshow), Hamburger Allee 2, 60486 Frankfurt/M., Lava III Meeting room.
