Paper Abstract

The development of brand specific front and tail lights in cooperation with the stylists is the assignment of automobile lighting. Highest car safety, attractive styling, differentiation in the traffic situation and environment friendliness are the project limits. LED technology has the potential to extend these limits. The LED technology will have to improve, but it is also enhanced by new sensor technologies that introduce new functionalities. The implementation of a possible roadmap depends on right technologies at the right time. For new styling ideas and functional innovations further steps in lighting technology are necessary. The document will show a car makers view on possible innovation ideas.
