Graphics and Lighting Development for LCDs in an Automotive Environment 840147
The challenge of producing an attractive, easy to read presentation to the driver is one that faces ail automotive instrumentation designers. In a system utilizing liquid crystal displays, appearance is influenced by graphics design, color, lighting source, lighting techniques and transflector and polarizer selection. Given today's technology, a “best balance” may be achieved by a systems approach which considers the trade-offs associated with the above variables in an automotive environment. This paper describes such an approach.
