Japan Display to market cutting-edge car panels with French partner

Ultra-wide screen for automated vehicles to be supplied to carmakers

This Japan Display-provided mock-up shows the ultrawide screen positioned to show entertainment during automated driving. 

TOKYO -- Japan Display said Tuesday that it will team up with French autoparts maker Faurecia to market next-generation screens for automated vehicle cockpits.

The partners will offer automakers a 32.1-inch screen that would be mounted atop the dashboard, using low-temperature polysilicon technology for its high-resolution display.

The screen's long, narrow shape equates to three full high-definition displays lined up side by side, providing a more cohesive design compared with existing proposals involving multiple separate panels, the Japanese display panel maker said.

Japan Display and Faurecia envision the screen giving human drivers a heads-up display for navigation and driving data, then shifting toward the middle of the dash during automated driving to show entertainment media.

Japan Display, which supplies liquid crystal display panels for some iPhones, has been seeking outside funding to stay afloat after Apple began incorporating organic light-emitting diode technology in some devices. Faurecia is currently in the process of purchasing Hitachi's car-navigation system arm through a tender offer.
