“GM Global Technology Operations LLC has submitted a patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a display system that could be incorporated into one or more windows of a vehicle as well as navigational and driver assist systems. The system, according to documentation filed with the patent and trademark office, includes light-blocking capabilities to assist with glare and more.
The system entails a liquid crystal array layer and a transparent LED layer, both in plurality with respect to pixels. A controller is then operatively connected to the liquid crystal array layer and the transparent LED layer.
“The controller is configured to selectively trigger emission of light from a selection of the LED pixels, and to selectively darken a selection of the LC pixels that correspond directly to the selection of LED pixels,” according to the patent. “Therefore, the emitting LED pixels and the darkened LC pixels match and light is emitted from the LED pixels in substantially the opposite direction of the LC array layer.””
