The LCD Dot Matrix for Versatile Driver Information 860178

This paper describes a LCD dot matrix which is able to display information from various subsystems like
  • Driver Information System
  • Trip Computer
  • Compass
  • Service Interval Counter
Today, independent displays are used at various locations within the instrument cluster or in the console. Modern display technology and the down-sizing of electronic packages allow an integration of a sophisticated multi-purpose information system even into the confined space of the cluster.
A modular design for the electronics allows a variation of information content from basic to high-line versions.
Design proposals based on a 32 × 32 LCD dot matrix are shown and an outlook into the future of high-resolution displays will be given.
