Hear from Jim Sax, Vice President of Research and Development for Automotive Electrification at 3M, about how HUDs are paving the way to ADAS

  • Headshot of Jim Sax, Vice President of Research and Development for Automotive Electrification, 3M

    The Human to Machine Interface (HMI) is undergoing a technological boon in automotive design, with Head-Up Displays (HUDs) poised to take over the windshield. HUDs were born in fighter jets. Pilots needed critical information at a glance while flying — hence the term, "head-up." Once the province of premium enthusiasts, HUDs may soon become standard issue, just as back-up cameras are today.

    "I believe HUD is one of the critical technologies to embrace as the future moves towards more autonomous vehicles, playing a vital role in reducing driver distraction, and providing a safer mobility experience."
