HUD (head-up display) is an optical system capable of projecting and displaying information of various vehicle systems into driver's vision. Through HUD, the driver only needs to look straight into the road to easily catch vehicle info such as speed, navigation, multimedia info and so on. This award-winning HD W-HUD product is also a project we took for a presidential car after beating a Japanese competitor in 2017, which is now in mass-production phase. Since then Hardstone became the first W-HUD product supplier to enter the European intelligent car cockpit before market.
Just recently our AR-HUD product, an advanced version of W-HUD, also got high praises in the 12th China Shenzhen Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition and won the semi-final certificate.
