  • From the luxury class to the compact segment: the augmented reality head-up display




    • Complicated name, fascinating function: information is projected into the driver’s field of view
    • Turn arrows and markings are superimposed over actual surroundings to create a new driving experience
    • Volkswagen is the first volume manufacturer to introduce the new technology in the compact segment with the models ID.31 and ID.42
    • Frank Welsch, Member of the Board of Management for Development: “We are introducing genuine innovations in the compact class – that is what sets Volkswagen.”


    With the new augmented reality head-up display, Volkswagen is merging the virtual and real worlds. The innovative system superimposes selected symbols onto the outside world and displays them dynamically. Volkswagen is the first car manufacturer in the world to introduce this technology in the compact segment, and is therefore making it affordable for many customers. The new convenience function will be introduced first in the all- electric ID.3 and ID.4 models.

    With the augmented reality head-up display, Volkswagen is opening a new chapter in driver information displays. Although the new technology is a genuine global innovation, Volkswagen has decided to launch it in a volume model. The brand is therefore continuing its strategy of offering high-tech features at affordable prices. “We have introduced a genuine innovation in series production,” says Frank Welsch, member of the Board of Management for Development. “And we have done this not in a premium vehicle, but in the compact models of the all- electric ID. family. Making pioneering technologies available to a large number of customers is a core competency of Volkswagen.”

    Two fields, two levels.
    The augmented reality head-up display projects important information onto the windscreen – separated into two fields and levels. The large window for the dynamic displays is located in the driver’s field of view at a virtual distance of around 10 metres and has a diagonal measuring around 1.8 metres. Information from the assist systems as well as the turn arrows and starting points and destinations of the navigation system are displayed in this far-range window.

    The close-range window is located as a flat band under the large far-range window. This shows the driving speed, road signs, and assist and navigation symbols as static displays. They appear to float around three metres in front of the driver.

    All displays are positioned perfectly in line with the real world outside the vehicle and are shown dynamically. When the vehicle approaches a junction where it should turn off according to the navigation route, the driver sees two indications: in the first step, an advance notification on the road level, and then three arrows located at the junction. The closer the driver gets to the junction, the larger the arrows become. At the same time, their textures fade in order to ensure a clear view of the road. When developing all displays, Volkswagen
    followed the basic concept of “Less is more”. This ensures that the driver is not overwhelmed with distracting information under any circumstances.

    Messages and warnings.
    The Lane Assist function is also visualised in the far-range window: if the vehicle moves closer to a boundary line at the edge of the road without indicating, this line is displayed in orange. Two green lines appear after switching on Travel Assist, which keeps the car in the middle of the lane. When following another vehicle, the display marks the vehicle in front with a coloured stripe as soon as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) or Travel Assist is activated. When the assist systems are switched off, the driver sees a red warning signal if they drive dangerously close to the vehicle in front.

    Deep inside the dash panel.
    The technical heart of the augmented reality head-up display is the picture generation unit (PGU) display located deep inside the dash panel. The beam bundles generated by an especially bright LCD display are transmitted onto two flat mirrors, and special lenses separate the portions for the close and far range display levels. The flat mirrors deflect the beams onto a large, electrically adjustable concave mirror. From here, the beams reach the windscreen and thus enter the driver’s field of view. The driver sees the symbols with the same sharp definition as the real world at an apparent distance of just under 10 metres.

    The images are generated by an AR creator located in one of the two central computers in the ID. models. The AR creator calculates the positioning of the symbols corresponding to the surroundings. To make these calculations, it receives information from the raw data of the front camera, radar sensor and navigation map. The displays that appear in the large window are stabilised with respect to the vehicle’s movements and adapted to the geometry of the optical projection system.

    Launch in the ID.4.
    The ID.4, the first electric world car from Volkswagen, is being launched on European markets with eight preconfigured models. Prices start from just 36,950 euros (with 19 percent value added tax in Germany), from which a net subsidy of 9,000 euros is additionally deducted in Germany. The augmented reality head-up display belongs to the Infotainment package Plus, which also includes the Discover Pro navigation system with touch display.

    The future of mobility is electric.
    As part of the Transform 2025+ strategy, the Volkswagen brand will invest eleven billion euros in electric mobility by 2024. As the first all-electric SUV from Volkswagen, the ID.4 is the second model in the ID. family after the ID.3. This new, separate product range has recently been launched to supplement the brand’s traditional product portfolio.

    Thanks Hair Bear. I've seen no end of camping cars using this sort of method. Personally, I prefer curtains, they look more homely, so l'll persevere

    We've used ours for many years now and there is still a certain smugness to it.
    Be careful with the cooker, there's very little air circulation

    I agree Slick 50 if incorrectly added was responsible for blocking engine oil filters, I will not put it (or ANY additive) anywhere near an engine. Manual

    My 2.0D the waterpump and cambelt was done at 40k because the pump failed. I'd say at that mileage you'd want them both doing.

    MT 90 is too thick for a 02M but works in other applications. It may be bumf but the point is, MTL works, proven, over and over again for over 30 years.

    Diesel is still a sensible option for mile munching M-way driving which most company cars will be used for. Difficult to understand how a voter would
