At the exhibition hall of leading Chinese display manufacturer BOE Technology, various flexible and foldable screens are on display. Amongst the exhibits is a recently released "screen scroll concept" device that achieves an almost "zero crease" effect on the screen.
Besides consumer electronic products, cutting-edge screen displays for vehicles have become a driving force for auto manufacturers. Multi-screen systems that can be linked together are now a focal point for the development of interactive display screens within the auto industry.
The NOMI screen, a collaborative product from BOE and Chinese automobile manufacturer NIO, is one example.
"There are five screens in the vehicle, including one central control screen, one heads-up display (HUD) and the loveliest NOMI screen, which is in the central area. The screen can provide a lot of interactive information, and people can use many car-related functions, such as navigation and entertainment on the screen," said Shen Feng, executive vice president of NIO.
Shen added that NOMI is not only a simple artificial intelligence system but also an emotional and intelligent car partner.
