For instance, a black screen would be truly black, making an instrument cluster easier to read. There will also be more displays inside each car; in fact, we can already count up to 10 displays in a modern vehicle: the instrument cluster, the center information display (CID) (1-2), smart back mirror, side mirror replacement (2), heads-up display (HUD), rear seat mount on the head support (2), and rear seat mount on the roof.
Highlighting the infusion of display technology in cars, analysis from IHS Markit points out that cameras and displays are increasingly being recognized as viable replacements for traditional side mirrors, providing benefits in fuel efficiency and safety. “Aerodynamic improvements and enhanced visibility are the primary reasons behind emerging mirror replacement applications, while designers will welcome newfound freedom after having explored novel exterior mirrors in concept vehicles for decades. Now that the regulatory environment is taking shape to support this concept, production applications will soon follow,” according to IHS Markit. The firm projects that by 2025, nearly half a million side-view camera display systems will replace side mirrors each year in new vehicles.
