GM Previews New Windshield Technology

GM, pioneers of HUD, have been working with several universities to create a new head-up display (HUD) designed to superimpose the windshield with informational graphics.  This new technology is called enhanced vision system.  According to an article on Left Lane:

Using an array of vehicle sensors and cameras, the new system can detect edge road lines in foggy conditions and then display the edge lines on the vehicle’s entire windshield via transparent phosphors and compact lasers. If visibility is further reduced by rain, snow or other conditions, the system can be paired with nigh vision, essentially transforming the entire windshield into an enhanced display.
