“Ansys SPEOS intuitive 3D interface immediately shows the optical analysis of data in the 3D environment; this significantly improves the effectiveness of communication and coordination between the customers and the optical department in the company.”

Product development engineers must be able to analyze the performance of a HUD system in terms of distortion, ghost images, optical volume, sun-related stray light and the interaction of light on material surfaces. Also, the single optical component of a HUD has a required tolerance of 5 to 6 microns in the manufacturing process, and it is very sensitive to combination and processing errors.
The optical analysis software solutions previously used by Lite-On Technology’s engineering team provided only lists of data. Engineers had to perform mathematical operations on this data, transfer it into graphic reports and inform staff members and customers of the results. It often took a whole week to work with the data and prepare the customer communication report.
