The Korean Herald posted an interesting interview with Jung Tae-hong, the president of Korea-based LED developer Lumens. Jung reveals that the company is developing an HD Micro-LED based automotive Heads-Up-Display (HUD), with lans to release its first such display by the end of 2017.
Lumens believes that Micro-LED displays are very suitable for HUDs as they can offer better usability under direct sunlight compared to LCD or OLED displays, and they can withstand high temperatures. In 2017 Lumens will launch a combiner-type HUD for the automotive aftermarket, and will introduce a built-in version within 2-3 years.
The company believes that Micro-LED are the ultimate next-eeneration display technology.
