Report on the Changing Mood in Automotive Internal Lighting

Report on the Changing Mood in Automotive Internal Lighting

The interior lighting can be customised, with different colours assigned to different driving modes. In park mode, the model even offers a ‘car show’ mode, whereby changing colours flow outwards from the instrument panel to the rest of the interior. With advances in technologies such as ADAS, and the potential of self-driving cars, interior lighting design is set to become increasingly important, from both a mood and an entertainment perspective.

Report on how Leading Lighting Technologies are Brightening up the Automotive Market

Report on how Leading Lighting Technologies are Brightening up the Automotive Market

More lighting features seem to many like additional expense in vehicles that aren’t necessary. Ambient lighting adds to that perception but LEDs and now OLEDs will be a less expensive alternative as they become more standard. LEDs in general use less electricity, weigh less and are more efficient.

PSA Groupe Presentation: Symbol Projection & HD ADB Headlamps

PSA Groupe Presentation: Symbol Projection & HD ADB Headlamps

ADB systems have greatly evolved in the last years from systems using dozens of segments or pixels, towards high definition projectors displaying thousands or millions of pixels, well adapted for symbols projection. We present the PSA Group strategy for optimizing those systems to different levels of complexity, depending on resolution, to different impacts to the car systems (electronics, CAN communication, and projection strategies).

The Presentation focuses on:

• Best Practice Example from PSA

• The potential of ADB systems for vehicle to pedestrian communication

• An holistic analysis of optimized ADB system
