Hyundai Mobis has developed what it claims it the world’s first adjustable display technology for integrated automotive cockpit systems.
Optimised for autonomous vehicles, this new technology has adopted a new concept of an ultra large, curved screen that is movable. It is also referred to as a swivel display because the screen can be moved both up and down.
This adjustable display features a 34″ ultra large screen and is equipped with ultra-high resolution 6K OLED panels. At present, a 34″ automotive display is recognised as the largest among automotive screens as they face challenging quality conditions, such as durability and reliability. In particular, the company designed this super-sized display as a multi-curved screen that bends at three points from top to bottom. This structure not only provides better visibility for the user but it also adds to the overall aesthetic effect in terms of design.
Stretching from the driver seat to the passenger seat, it is capable of displaying a variety of content, including various driving and navigation information as well as music and videos for personalised content on the full screen while autonomous driving. The display can also be swivelled toward the driver’s seat leaving a small screen that shows only minimum information “to enjoy the sense of openness”.
This display features just a single screen allowing full screen video, for example, when the vehicle is driving autonomously. Content can be controlled in several ways, including screen touch and gestures.
Hyundai Mobis has filed 10 related patent applications in multiple countries.
It said: “It was not easy to develop a moving display that is supposed to be used in a running car. The company has applied for patents, for example, for swivel display arrangement technology, position control, and integrated cockpit design.”
The supplier is already a major producer of cockpit modules.
