Touchscreen cockpit flags up key data
Today, cockpits have several small screens, rather than the single large display of ODICIS.
Having a single display puts fewer constraints on the system in how it presents information. With ODICIS, data, images, charts and maps can take up as much space as needed, depending on what is most important to the pilot at any particular moment.
It can also fit information into irregular shaped panels such as the triangular ends of the display.
