Keywords: liquid crystal displays, vehicle transportation, aviation


The article presents the basic properties of liquid crystals with particular emphasis on their use in the construction of liquid crystal displays. The basic properties of liquid crystal displays, their structure and principle of operation are discussed. The selected examples show the benefits of using liquid crystal displays in vehicle transportation and aviation.
