Plastic LCDs for autonomous vehicle interior concept

FlexEnable is collaborating with Yanfeng Automotive Interiors to create an Invisible A-pillar concept for an autonomous demonstrator. FlexEnable provided a 12.1” glass-free, conformable OLCD that has been incorporated into a car’s A-pillar to allow for greater visibility and safety. The demonstrator was included in YFAI’s XiM17 autonomous concept interior that made its world debut at the 2017 North American Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

System interrupts radio broadcast to warn of ambulance

System interrupts radio broadcast to warn of ambulance
