Rightware, a provider of automotive user interface software announced it collaborated with LG Electronics to develop the industry’s first curved OLED display for the 2021 Cadillac Escalade.
LG Electronics P-OLED technology is the centerpiece of the all-new SUV’s interior. The seamless OLED screen features a 38-inch-wide display that includes: the instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, a control panel on the driver’s left, and the infotainment on the right. The screen’s wide viewing angle and driver-centric curvature combine with hi-resolution bold graphics and the largest color range in the industry to create an impeccably integrated human-machine interface (HMI) experience.
Rightware’s designers in Seoul and Detroit worked in close partnership with LG Electronics on the design and implementation of the Escalade’s instrument cluster, control panel, infotainment screen, and head-up display (HUD).
The Escalade’s HMI integrates augmented reality, driver information, and infotainment all-in-one system. Unique to the HMI is a rich graphical control application for the advanced-comfort front seats, which feature 18-way adjustments with heating, ventilation, and massage functions.
Created with Kanzi, the seat application takes full advantage of real-time graphics, employing 3D morphing to visualize seat movement as the driver adjusts seat settings via the IVI touch screen or a multi-function controller on the vehicle’s center console. The UI seamlessly incorporates 2D controls with rich 3D graphics for natural and intuitive user experience.
