If you have a classic car or would like to keep the one you have rather than upgrading to one of the latest models that include new head-up display technology. You might be interested in a new piece of hardware designed for the dashboard of vehicles that has been developed by Noufal based in Los Angeles California called the iSCOUT.
The iSCOUT Head-Up Display or HUD has been specifically designed to help drivers view maps, blind spots and even safely stay connected using their smartphone whilst driving.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about the iSCOUT HUD that has launched via Kickstarter this month to raise the $50,000 it requires to go into production. The developers of iSCOUT explain more about its inspiration, features and construction.
The idea of a HUD is to make driving safer. The driver will not have to take his eye off the road to get any of the information he/she needs. Recent researches show that it takes lesser time for a driver to get this information from a HUD as opposed to looking at a conventional display (phone screen/GPS device) as it takes considerably lesser time for the eye to shift focus from the road to the display and back. This ensures that the driver’s attention is on the road and therefore reduces the risk of accidents.
iSCOUT is a patent pending Head-Up Display (HUD) that projects all the information required for driving such as car speed, fuel level, GPS navigation as a floating virtual image in front of the vehicle. iSCOUT syncs to your smartphone and displays incoming calls, messages, reminders, social media content and other notifications along with several other features such as blind-spot view and an integrated dashcam.
