Mitsubishi Electric and Mitsubishi Motors have developed an LCD instrument panel and will introduce to their 1982 model car. A digital speedometer, a tachometer, a fuel gauge, and a temperature gauge are integrated on a single LCD. The cluster has a backlight that illuminates the LCD whenever the system is active. The response of the LCD is fast enough to display the vehicle speed in digital form. An extensive reliability test showed that this cluster is as reliable as its VFT counterparts.
