October 1, 2019, Tampa, US – LUMINEQ, the leading provider of transparent displays, will unveil its innovative in-glass display solution for safer boating at the International Boat Builders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) during October 1-3.
In cooperation with Taylor Made Systems, the world’s largest manufacturer of marine glazing systems, LUMINEQ will showcase the first transparent information display for marine applications. Stop by the Taylor Made Systems booth at 3-503 at the IBEX Show in Tampa and see for yourself the “magic of transparency”.
As boats run faster and in more heavily trafficked navigational waterways, there is greater need to maintain heads and eyes up. With a transparent display laminated into the windscreen or sitting on top of the helm, a driver is able to maintain visual contact with the horizon while still seeing critical information in the line of sight making for a safer boating experience.
Multi-function displays (MFD) are replacing single-purpose gauges offering flexibility and a lot more data. However, critical information can sometimes get lost and become difficult to see. Moreover, glancing between the dashboard and the sea can be very distracting especially in full sunlight or at night.
To improve safety, in-glass displays provide a great supplement to the MFD, offering high visibility of critical information in the line of sight - RPM, speed, depth, etc. It is just the right amount of data, easily viewable at eye level for the boater. LUMINEQ displays are designed for harsh environments tolerating extreme heat, UV light, and high moisture -- perfect for marine applications.
Simple and cool
Digitalization has been changing our lifestyle at unprecedented speed. Digital interfaces and displays are quickly replacing analog systems in the marine industry. This is what we are trying to achieve with LUMINEQ technology – to make displays that are simple and yet blend seamlessly into the overall design.
Showing information on a piece of glass is no longer reserved for sci-fi movies. The technology of laminating transparent displays in the glass is now available and being adopted by other industry players. Check out Valtra’s tractor smart glass powered by LUMINEQ transparent displays.
