Intelligent Automotive Lighting 2016

Lighting as an element of styling – Lighting in the context of Autonomous Driving - Innovative Light Source Technologies for Interior and Exterior Automotive Lighting

Lighting is used as a brand signature to marque identity. Style and safety are the key drivers which are pushing forward the experts of todays’ automotive lighting development. LED technology, which is linked to camera systems, promises a more distinctive illumination to raise drivers comfort. Via sophisticated laser technology it is possible to create virtual situations to enhance safety while saving on energy consumption. Through OLED technology, the variety of aesthetic possibilities seems almost infinite: smart visual communication combined with 3D effects and the fusion of light and body. Whilst heading into the so called age of IoT, automotive lighting technology will also be able to communicate with the infrastructure and other vehicles, which requires advanced software.

Hence OEMs and their suppliers are facing intrinsic challenges for implementing the new technologies to guaranty compatibility, whilst remaining cost efficient. At the IAL 2016 you will:

  • Discover the possibility of lighting as a new aesthetic language to convey the brand of the car
  • Discuss automotive lighting in the context of autonomous driving
  • Find out about advanced lighting-technology such as laser based functions
  • See how to improve OLED technology for automotive use and integration
  • Discover the latest developments of automotive interior lighting and its possibilities to communicate with the driver
  • Learn innovative approaches to meet the challenges of glare-free high beam pixel light
  • Discover the latest achievements of next-generation LED headlight concepts

The conference will be held in English. If you are interested in giving a presentation please contact
