Thousands of preventable automobile accidents occur each year. Many of these accidents are the result of driver distraction, in which the driver’s attention is diverted from the road. This distraction can come from several different places; sometimes it comes from drivers looking down at a speedometer or dashboard display. Other times it can come from the use of a mobile device for texting or navigation. While things like texting are clearly an unacceptable action to perform while operating a vehicle, others are necessary for proper operation of a car. Still others, like navigation, are extremely convenient and have become an integral part of day to day life. It seems highly possible that such convenient driving aids as well as necessary measures such as speed could be incorporated into a heads-up display for a safer driving experience.
