Impacts of LED/Laser Technology on Automotive Lighting

“The LED technology enables to control every individual light-emitting diode in an synchronized lighting system. New luminous surfaces and flowing activations transform light from static to dynamic. The development of  efficient lighting systems is an important component of the overarching trend of electromobility. Therefore LED and laser based systems are the foundation of efficiency enhancements. Laser based  lighting technology such as Digital Micromirror Devices enable ideal high definition light pattern for virtually every situation on the road. It is realized by means of a chip with hundreds of thousands of micromirrors that divide the light into tiny separately controlled  pixels. The mentioned technology will be an important part for the communication of piloted driving vehicles and pedestrians. For instance, it is possible to indicate pedestrians on the roads that they were recognized and can cross the road safely”.
