Relec supports Team Bath Racing Electric with cockpit display
Relec, is celebrating the success of Team Bath Racing Electric (TBRe) in the recent Formula Student UK. TBR sponsor Relec supplied an eight-inch letterbox LVDS TFT display which was integrated into vehicle. The colour active matrix display consists of a TFT panel, a driving circuit, and a backlight system.
The display features a resolution of 1600 RGB x 480 pixels and 2000cd/m2 brightness, contrast of 900:1 and a wide viewing angle. To help the team and driver in the harsh race conditions, the display had an anti-glare treatment and was fitted with a PMMA (polycarbonate) cover lens, replacing the conventional glass version which cannot be used in automotive applications.
The display was vital for the team’s challenge, showing details of speed and the distance travelled. It also provided valuable information on battery and performance, with illustrations of the battery cell voltages, power output, battery charge and temperature to help the vehicle team and driver develop the automotive system for the race.
