OLED Curved Monitors Will Improve the Driver Experience

OLED curved monitors will enable faster, safer drives.

Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) curved monitors aren’t just cool, they are practical. It’s been commonly reported that curved monitors are more ergonomic. They also offer a wider field of vision and add depth to images.

In fact, Samsung reports that 87 percent of users have more comfortable experiences with less eyestrain when watching an OLED curved monitor.

The automotive industry should take note because the reduced eyestrain will enable longer, safer drives. Additionally, adding depth and a wider field of vision to rear-view camera feeds will give drivers a better idea of what’s going on around them.

The challenge of integrating OLED curved monitors into cars is that they can produce a more dangerous amount of glare and reflection than flat monitors. ANSYS SPEOS can create digital prototypes of curved monitors that can address these safety concerns, while significantly reducing the time to market.

How to Design Automotive Interiors with OLED Curved Monitors

Simulations can optimize curved monitors, so they don’t stun a driver with glare and reflections.

Automotive engineers can use SPEOS to create a simulation that visualizes OLED curved monitors within the interior of a car.

SPEOS makes it easy to include OLED monitors in a simulation thanks to virtual components within its library.

The biggest risk that curved monitors pose is their ability to create reflections and glare that can stun drivers.

With SPEOS, engineer can assess the safety of their OLED curved monitors in various lighting scenarios. They can then use this information to optimize the placement and curvature of the monitor. 

SPEOS can even help engineers assess how an anti-refection layer can prevent a curved monitor from stunning the driver.
