LG Display has deployed the world’s first glassless 3D display panel onto Hyundai Motor’s 2019 Genesis G70, according to industry sources on Sunday.
The 12.3-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) display panel overlaps two sheets of a panel and uses a difference of angels between the two eyes to create a three-dimensional effect. A separate transparent film attached on the display plays a role to enable the two eyes to look at a different screen from each other.
LG Display also applied Eye Tracking technology to realize an optimized 3D screen by detecting the driver’s eye position. An infrared sensor installed at the bottom of the panel can detect the driver’s eyes. When the sensor fails to recognize the diver’s eyes, the panel is automatically converted to a 2D screen. These functions can be turned on or off by the driver.
LG Display developed the 3D display panel based on the carmakers feedback that many drivers still prefer the three-dimensional environment provided by an analog instrument panel in the past. LG Display plans to supply its glassless 3D display panel to high-end luxury cars.
