The OLED market is developing at rapid pace and we should see the first <a href=oled.php><b>OLED-TVs later this year</b></a>. In the latest implementation of OLED technology, Audi plans to use a 7.7” OLED panel as a rear-view mirror in the Audi R8 e-tron electric car.<br /><br /><h3>OLED as rear-view mirror</h3>Audi’s coming R8 e-tron is pretty cool and it is pretty cool to learn that it will also utilize OLED technology to solve car design hurdles. Since the car has no rear window a traditional rear-view mirror is impossible to install.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/audir8etron-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/audir8etron-1.jpg" alt="Audi R8 e-tron" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Audi’s coming R8 e-tron electric car has no rear window and therefore it utilizes a OLED rear-view “mirror”</i></p><br />Instead, Audi plans to install a 7.7-inch OLED panel that relies on cameras behind the car. The OLED panel is ideal as a rear-view “mirror” because of the excellent picture quality, high brightness level, wide viewing angles and extremely fast response time that reacts even at 330 km/h.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/audir8etron-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/audir8etron-2.jpg" alt="Audi R8 e-tron" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Audi’s coming R8 e-tron electric car has no rear window and therefore it utilizes a OLED rear-view “mirror”</i></p><br />The panel used is an AMOLED made by Samsung.<br /><br />The Audi R8 e-tron will launch in 2013. Audi also exhibited a <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1331300544><b>prototype car with OLED lighting</b></a> panels earlier this year.<br /><br />- <i>Source: <a href=http://www.autoblog.com/2012/08/09/audi-bringing-digital-rearview-mirror-from-racing-to-production/ target=_blank>AutoBlog</a> via <a href=http://www.oled-info.com/audi-equip-r18-e-tron-car-their-77-amoled-digital-rear-view-mirror target=_blank>OLED-Info</a></i>
