What you are illlustrating is a head up display (HUD) for a front collision alert warning indicator. If the vehicle detects a potential forward collision condition, you will see a multi-segment red bar flashing in your forward field of view. It's projected on your windsheild, but focused out ahead of your vehicle so that you don't have to take your eyes off of what's in front of you. You will also either hear series of beeps or pulses in the driver's seat, depending on how you have configured your preferences via the infotainment system.
