Head-up display or HUD

Head-up displays originate from military aviation and help the driver view the display of data without having to take their eyes off the road; the data is also displayed in the form of a holographic warning on the dashboard. This display consists in projecting data on a transparent or semi-transparent strip on the windscreen of the vehicle itself.

Initially reserved for top-of-the-range vehicles, the optical devices are becoming more common because of their positive impact on road safety and new driver needs: data consumption, data concerning the vehicle’s surroundings, GPS driving assistance and road applications, etc.

HOECs (Holographic Optical Element Combiners) are the most advanced systems on the market and PROCESS is fully involved in the development of this technology.

PROCESS: optical injection for head-up displays

As a specialist in thermoplastic injection , PROCESS has the expertise required for creating optical components for head-up displays (HUDs) and AR Systems (augmented reality systems), whether concerning equipment for standard or aftermarket fitting.

Our workshops and plastic injection press stock enable us to produce optical components requiring high quality technical properties (transparency or semi-transparency, purity, optical properties, etc.). The visibility and legibility in particular of information displayed on the transparent surface rely on adapted optical components:

  • The combiner (lens), for a see-through dashboard;
  • A mirror, for a reflective display.

Our company is also able to produce any other type of plastic component for the automotive sector:
