Transparent thin film electroluminescent displays offer more than 80% transparency in the visible range, i.e., window-like transparency. They can be applied as stand-alone displays, or HUDs, but also as in-glass or on-glass laminated displays. In-glass lamination comprises laminating a display, e.g., between two larger panes of glass, thus creating a glazing unit with a transparent display integrated into it. This glazing unit can be the windshield of a work vehicle or coach, the bridge window or cabin porthole of a vessel and the window of many more applications.
In-glass laminated transparent displays offer a unique entry point to display design, the human-machine-interface and product differentiation. The design can be customized in terms of shape, size and content. The HMI is substantially enhanced by adding display content to the line-of-sight, without jeopardizing situational awareness of, e.g., a vehicle driver or crane operator. In other words, critical data can be brought to the attention of an operator, without the operator losing visual contact with what he is doing. This is easily seen as a safety feature, which gives the innovation an even stronger role in decisions of implementation.
