The OLED market is developing at rapid pace and we should see the first OLED-TVs later this year. 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.

OLED as rear-view mirror

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.

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.

The panel used is an AMOLED made by Samsung.

The Audi R8 e-tron will launch in 2013. Audi also exhibited a prototype car with OLED lighting panels earlier this year.
