Digital Light Processing (DLP) is a technology based on a chip called DMD (digital micromirror device) that controls the variation of the intensity of the light of a source.
This is possible thanks to the use of millions of micro-mirrors that can be rotated to properly deflect a beam of light, in order to create the image with the help of a projection lens.
The result is a very vivid and brilliant projection that allows a direct transition from the digital image to the projected one.
Moreover, unlike other technologies, you can wear polarized sunglasses, without them interfering with your view of the display.
DLP can be used in a variety of applications including automotive applications.
DLP is property of Texas Instruments a company founded in the 1950s in the United States. Today it is one of the leading manufacturers of semiconductor devices and information technology with offices around the world and approximately 30.000 employees.
The latest updates regarding this technology consist of a new chipset that creates brighter, high-resolution, wide-field-of-view displays and headlamps.
In addition to chipsets with better specifications, other improvements for the automotive industry consist of a holographic display head that shows information in a space of 7.5 meters so that information can be superimposed on the real road scene.
These are transparent displays that can be loaded onto vehicles of various sizes.
The goal is to create this display to put information on the windshield, so that drivers no longer have to look down to avoid distractions. This will make driving safer and provide a positive experience for drivers.
