Driven by technological innovation and consumption upgrading, the definition of cars is gradually changing from " transportation facility" to the "Third Living Space". The intelligent cockpit, as the most direct interface connecting users and vehicles, plays a crucial role.

Given this background, the robust market demand has driven the surge in in-vehicle HUD applications. As an indispensable component of the intelligent cockpit, the head-up display can project multiple vehicle information into the driver’s vision field, enhancing driving safety. Furthermore, it contributes to advancing vehicle intelligence. By transforming the car cockpit into a platform for information, entertainment, and advertising, HUD serves as the bridge for users to truly “drive” into "Third Living Space".

Amidst the swift evolution of the automotive industry, AR-HUD, boasting advanced technology, excellent human-vehicle interaction experience, and high driving safety, is poised to spearhead the industry's development in the coming years. It can be seen that mastering the leading PGU technology of AR-HUD PGU is the key to standing out.

Among mainstream PGU technologies of AR-HUD, LCoS technology, with its excellent display performance and absence of technological monopolies, will be the best choice for AR-HUD. Hardstone's latest achievement, LCoS AR-HUD 2.0, maximizes the advantages of LCoS technology. This cutting-edge product not only supports a full-color display with a high light output of 140lm, but also boasts outstanding 2K-level resolution, 1500:1 high contrast ratio, and 15000nits high brightness. In addition, supported by optical design and mathematical modeling optimization, this product is equipped with high-precision curved mirrors, achieving 13°x5° FOV and >13m VID in a small volume. Professional analysis models are also utilized to simulate sunlight load and glare elimination, realizing performance indicators and optical display effects that are currently leading in the industry.
