Previously, other approaches included using multiple LCDs, which lacked the optical characteristics and transmittance to achieve acceptable backlight power levels required for automotive displays.
Visteon has been working on next-generation of 3D solutions based on lenticular array technology – a combination of miniature lenses placed in front of the LCD and precisely aligned with the TFT pixels. The blending of these micro-lenses and certain sophisticated video processing procedures creates the 3D effect for the driver. Visteon’s cluster precisely tracks the position of the driver’s eyes. Video processing algorithms generate left-eye and right-eye views, while the micro-lens array directs each view toward the corresponding driver’s eye.
Information is displayed on the outermost level of the skin with sizing and positioning that is easy to see as the situation demands.
The display appears when necessary, but is normally switched off to reduce inconvenience and maintain a beautiful appearance.
Supports a wide range of possibilities such as real or artificial leather, and metal-like or wood-like decorations
