LG is showcasing its various automotive products at the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland with automotive design studio Italdesign Glugiaro, LG has contributed several of its products and technologies for the Gea concept car.
Woo-jong Lee, LG Electronics Vehicle Components division president and CEO:
“I believe this collaboration is very meaningful for LG. While cooperating with a firm as globally known as Italdesign Giugiaro, the partnership will definitely help LG to better understand smart cars, which will become more and more important market in the future.”
LG has supplied all in-car displays for the Gea. A 12.3-inch 1080p IPS display, which handles instrument control and displays other information, is front and center and on the car’s passenger side. In addition, there’s a six-inch curved HD Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display in the front and rear console.
LG’s technology is not limited to the inside as the company’s Surface Illumination (SI) LED technology decorates the tail lamp. Also, there are three rear cameras replacing conventional mirrors that can only be seen only when they’re being used.
The Gea is also compatible with the LG Watch Urbane LTE, which debuted at MWC 2015 in Barcelona. Through an exclusive app, the Watch Urbane LTE can get feeds and other information from the car, as well as open and close the car’s door.
