Frontline Technology: Emissive Projection Technology Enables a Full-Windshield Head-Up Display
The authors have developed a full-windshield head-up display (FW-HUD) for automotive applications. This new display is based on emissive projection display technology and forms photo-quality images on a fully transparent RGB emissive screen, after selective excitation of the screen by images in multiple ultra-violet wavebands from a projector. With this FW-HUD, information can be graphically displayed anywhere on a windshield without limitation on viewing angles.

Frontline Technology: Next-Generation Head-Up Displays
HUD 2.0 may function as a primary information-display technology for vehicle drivers rather than a source of merely helpful or ancillary information.
By Alan Rankin and Jason Thompson

Frontline Technology: Technologies and Trends for Vehicular Displays
Displays have become an integral part of the driving experience. The author takes a brief look back at the history of displays and then a look forward at how displays in vehicles will meet the ever-increasing demands put on them.

Frontline Technology: Automotive Applications for Passive-Matrix OLEDs
Passive-matrix OLED technologies offer some excellent advantages for automotive designers. However, consideration also needs to be given to factors that could affect design performance, including luminance decay, burn-in, power consumption, and color availability.

Display Marketplace: Can Advanced Assembly Techniques Alter the Dynamic of Display Manufacturing?
The mass production of flat-panel displays has been dominated by the use of TFTs, deposited via vacuum lithography, to drive LCD or OLED panels. This approach has been a strength in terms of standardization and massive scale up to Gen 10 fabs and beyond, but also a weakness in that the cost has made profitability elusive over a quarter century of production and in a limited selection of display shapes and sizes. Emerging manufacturing techniques that combine semiconductor production with relatively simple assembly have the potential to change this dynamic.
