1. Advanced technology/application in vehicle display

Due to the continuous improving requirements from vehicular market, the displays applied in automotive area have to fulfill much higher requirements than that used in consumer electronics field, concerning the anti-glare, easy identification, automatic brightness adjustment, wide visual angle, high contrast ratio, and safe driving, etc. In addition, more and more novel display technologies and components (curved display, flexible display, OLED, mini-LED, micro-LED, AR HUD, etc.) were tried to be used in the vehicle for species of special applications except the cluster and CID.

2. Human-Machine Interface (HMI) in unmanned mode

The Human-Machine Interface (HMI) in the automotive display area mainly includes information display, voice recognition and touchscreen feedback, which derived from an integrated development in the environment recognition, programmed decision-making and advanced driver-assistance systems. Especially as the development of unmanned technology, many companies or scientific institutions have invested huge resources in the senior auto-series to improving the users' operation comfort. How to seamlessly shift from a traditional driving environment to automated driving that tailored to the user preferences and habits is still a big issue to be solved.

3. High ability materials applied in vehicle display

Owing to the special running environment and high requirement of the automotive display, the ability of materials is a key role in the design of the display which includes optical performance, long running stability, interaction function and module appearance. The ability of materials limits the performance of display directly, which means that the continuous development the high ability materials for different using is an important and necessary process.
