Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the effect on superimposition of the HUD (Head-Up Display) in a driving environment. The semi-transparent properties of HUD lead to the superimposition which means the overlap between HUD’s graphics and an environmental object. Especially, the elderly may have difficulties with driving in a HUD environment because of their loss of cognitive and physical capability. Therefore, we performed the experiment to investigate the effect of age on superimposition in a HUD environment. Participants (elderly, non-elderly) performed the driving task in high and low superimposition level (two simulated road conditions). The result showed that each group’s glance duration was significantly increased in a HUD environment. Moreover, the elderly’s glance duration showed more increasing in a HUD environment than the non-elderly.
