Cruden has revealed that is continuing development of OLED panels. While direct view LED panel simulator technology offers pixel-pitch of as little as 0.9-1.5mm, the panels that are used in off-board simulator visual systems are currently not suited to onboard simulator use.
Therefore the company is replacing its custom-developed LED backlit LCD displays that are used on board its motion platforms, with OLED technology. Cruden believes it will be the first company to implement and deliver the technology in driving simulator visual systems.
These OLED panels can be curved to wrap around the driver, meaning that the technology is ideal for application in facilities that are limited in space, or the budget isn’t available for a large off-board projection or LED panel-type visual system.
