General Motors introduced the first production Head Up Display (HUD) in the United States in the 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Indianapolis “500” Pace Car Parade Convertibles. Since then, HUDs have been available in limited production on selected GM automobiles. This display technology can also be adapted to commercial trucks. The basic automotive HUD concepts are briefly reviewed, then design trade-offs specific to the truck application are discussed. Finally, a description is included of the first prototype HUD installation into a big-rig truck cab.
