Large Displays in Automotive Design
July/August 2000 (vol. 20 no. 4)
pp. 68-75
The ability to display and interact with large-scale representations of vehicles has always been a fundamental requirement of the automotive design industry. This requirement has traditionally manifested itself in a variety of media, including full-scale blueprints, tape drawings, and 3D clay models. More recently, automotive design studios have begun to explore the use of large-scale digital displays in their design workflow. We explore the traditional and current uses of large displays in automotive design and present new applications that make innovative use of large-format electronic displays.
