A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11884157B2) discloses a display system designed for vehicles. The system includes a display device connected to a rotation mechanism that allows the display to switch between portrait and landscape orientations. When a user switches the vehicle from park to drive, the system automatically rotates the display from landscape to portrait orientation, enhancing user interaction and visibility while driving.

Additionally, the system may feature a touch bar with buttons that remain stationary while the vehicle is in motion. This touch bar can be positioned centrally on the dashboard, above the center console, or even include a second display device with touchscreen capabilities. The processor within the system is programmed to optimize the graphical user interface (GUI) by managing visible areas on both the display device and touch bar. It can also rotate and reshape displayed information when transitioning between portrait and landscape orientations based on user input, ensuring a seamless user experience. Furthermore, when the vehicle is switched back to park, the system rotates the display back to landscape orientation, adapting to the changing needs of the user during different driving scenarios.
