Royole and Airbus unveil the first three cabin flexible display prototypes at Airshow China
Royole and Airbus confirmed the appetite for cabin flexible display solutions, after presenting the first three cabin flexible display prototypes at the recent Airshow China, building on the partnership established between the two brands in 2018.
“Fully flexible display is an ultra-thin and ultra-light cutting-edge technology, adapting to any cabin surface with minimum integration efforts. Working as a ‘sticker’, it is the human-machine interface of the future in aviation, we are making it real with Royole, and we will continue to work together to push the boundaries of what is possible for aviation,” said Alejandro Morales, Airbus project leader for Flexible Display.
“Utilising fully flexible displays instead of traditional LCDs in aircraft can reduce both cost and weight, saving fuel and reducing carbon emissions in airliners,” said Hong Zhao, COO of Royole Corporation, “which will provide new paths to improving the sustainability of our world.”
Royole’s flexible solutions will save hundreds of thousands dollars (USD) of fuel each year, and meet the industry’s strict quality and safety standards, passing the AS9100 and DO160 tests for flammability, toxicity and smoke. Today, Royole is the only flexible display manufacturer that can deal with the highly demanding requirements of aircraft cabin.
Flexible electronics can improve both the sustainablility and value of commercial airlines, improving passenger experiences, re-imagining inflight entertainment, and creating new spaces for advertisers. It also represents the future of semiconductors that will drive category innovation, promoting a more environmentally sustainable future and enhancing many aspects of consumers lives.
