Continental secures billion-euro order for V-shaped display

Continental secures billion-euro order for V-shaped display

The V-shape of the display was achieved by integrating two flat displays under a common curved cover glass. The solution extends from the driver’s area to the centre console and visually connects the two screens of the instrument cluster and the central display under one surface. The radius and angle of the display solution are centred on the driver’s perspective, so that the driver is at the centre of the information output. The ergonomics of the display make it easier for him or her to perceive relevant information.

The solution will be integrated into several vehicle models of a globally active Asian vehicle manufacturer, Continental announced – as usual without disclosing the name of the OEM.

The technology company sees the order as another success for its large, seamless and individually shaped displays, which enrich the user experience as a decisive surface in the cockpit. The supplier achieves the seamless appearance with the help of so-called optical bonding, a special adhesive technology.

 “We are delighted to have won another series order for a state-of-the-art display solution that once again demonstrates our expertise in the field of user experience,” says Philipp von Hirschheydt, head of the User Experience business unit at Continental. “Our V-shaped display offers exceptional comfort and ergonomics for drivers, simplifies the collection of important driving information and provides an engaging two-in-one solution. It is suitable for a wide range of vehicle variants.” The company’s order book for display solutions thus exceeds the €5.5 billion mark.
