Supported by Ansys, Ferrari Races Toward Faster Development of Head-up Displays
A leader in auto racing, the Ferrari Competizioni GT team is known for not only its winning record, but also its behind-the-scenes technology leadership. So it is no surprise that Ferrari is pioneering the use of head-up displays (HUDs) in its GT race cars. Because these displays are designed to share critical real-time information on the windshield without impeding the driver’s view, they must be developed and verified with an incredible degree of precision. Displays must be legible under every condition, and controls must be easy to operate at speeds up to 200 miles per hour. How can Ferrari develop and test HUDs quickly, with 100% confidence in their performance? The answer is Ansys engineering simulation. By leveraging Ansys SPEOS and Ansys VRXPERIENCE, Ferrari is on track to launch its HUD designs rapidly and cost-effectively by minimizing the time and financial investments involved in iterative prototypes and repeated physical tests.
