Abstract The mobility of people is ever increasing, with a sense of being able to travel to any destination they wish. Utilising the GPS and computer technology created for the use within vehicles for guidance purposes allows people to do this, without the thought of Where am I? or Where do I go now? These systems warrant the need to look at the display for excessive periods of time, causing drivers to remove their vision from the road. A possible solution could be the introduction of military aviation technology, specifically Head-Up Display (HUD), to compliment the current system, by presenting modified navigational information on the windscreen. This paper looks at background theory associated with the technology being investigated and its proposed implementation. It then provides an overview of the information obtained to date. Problems that may occur with such an implementation are discussed and further research to be undertaken outlined.
