With Pedestrian Alert, if there is the possibility of collision with a pedestrian ahead, the direction of the pedestrian's presence is shown in an animation via the LS's large color HUD
, contributing to intuitive recognition on the part of the driver.
Continental is no stranger to the technology, as BMW first offered a Continental color HUD
back in 2003.
In 2004, Siemens VDO Automotive will offer the industry's first freely programmable color HUD
. The system broadens the range of information shown by including turn-by-turn navigation arrows, braking distance, tire pressure and oil warnings, as well as the traditional speed, engine rpm and fuel level data.
