Built on a thin plastic substrate, this transparent display can be integrated into the vehicle’s windshield to add driver-friendly functionality without adding weight. Moreover, it can be fully customized during manufacture with segments of any shape and color.
The HUD demonstrator was produced on the Lyteus pilot line, a pan-European initiative funded via the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. A unique resource for companies looking to explore the potential of flexible OLEDs, the Lyteus pilot line allows manufacturers to start developing new OLED-enhanced products today without waiting for OLED technology to enter mass market. It now offers sheet-to-sheet fabrication up to 20x20 cm, and a 30-cm-wide, roll-to-roll (R2R) line is due to come on-line this summer.
“The automotive HUD demonstrator shows how flexible OLED technology can change our lives, in this case potentially making driving safer and more user friendly. The Lyteus line exists to help innovative ideas like this get to market faster in areas such as automotive, aerospace and health. We offer large-scale pilot production of bendable OLEDs in any shape and color, transparent or reflective, and with a uniformity that surpasses any other light source,” says Erno Langendijk, program mgr.-Holst Centre, one of the Lyteus coordinating partners.
The Lyteus automotive HUD demonstrator is on display in the I-Zone at the Society for Information Display’s (SID’s) Display Week 2018 in Los Angeles, through this Thursday.
