SenseDriver Technologies shows off a smartphone-powered aftermarket auto heads-up display at CES 2015-- the SenseHUD, a transparent dashboard-mounted display showing drivers calls, directions, speed and other details.

SenseHUDFor use, customers need to mount a smartphone face-up in the SenseHUD bracket, before connection via Bluetooth and companion Hudson app. A special electrochromatic LCD reflects the smartphone's display to create a transparent (adjustable by 3 viewing levels according to ambient light levels) dashboard HUD.

Meanwhile the Hudson app also handles voice commands for maps, turn-by-turn directions, current speed and message replies, with the OpenStreetMap project providing map data. The makers also plan to add integration via OBD-II dongle in a future release.

SenseDriver is currently taking SenseHUD preorders, and shipments should start from Q3 2015.
