Train windows in Beijing and Shenzhen are the first to be replaced with LG’s transparent screens.
LG announced today that the windows on subway trains in two Chinese cities are becoming much more useful thanks to a switch to transparent OLED displays.
The Beijing (Line 6) and Shenzhen (Line 10) subway trains have been upgraded to replace some of the windows with 55-inch transparent OLED displays. So instead of just letting light in and allowing commuters to see where they are, the windows now show real-time information about subway schedules, locations, transfers, associated flights, local weather, and the news.
TV Business Unit at LG Display. “LG Display aims to supply products to a wide range of industries in line with its vision as the leading display solution provider.”
The two lines in Beijing and Shenzhen are just the start, with LG planning to expand the use of its transparent displays to more subways and will work closely with train glass manufacturers to speed up deployment. LG also sees the technology being used in self-driving cars, airplanes, and smart homes/buildings in future.
