For the initial setup and performance evaluation of an HUD (head-up display) system there are two handy tools in Zemax OpticStudio: The Field Wizard will help you to set up the Field Data Editor with the most common requirements and to automatically create field patterns.
The Full-Field Aberration analysis tool will give you quickly access to analyze the aberrations as a function of field position, e.g. of your windshield. It calculates the Zernike decomposition of the wavefront and displays the Zernike coefficients across the full field of view. This analysis can be particularly useful on systems containing freeform surfaces to verify aberration correction across the specified field. The further optical design of the HUD will start at correcting for the aberrations.
