Future cars are likely to be equipped with many thousands of LEDs that enable everything from glare-free upper-beam headlights to projected messages that signal the vehicle’s intentions to those nearby.
Adaptive LED-array headlights are available now in Europe, notes Julian Dench, who heads the Americas region of Osram Continental GmbH. Formed in April 2018, the 50:50 venture combines Osram’s lighting expertise with Continental’s electronics capabilities.
Dench says carmakers are driving the use of LED projector lighting in part because of the styling and safety options it offers.
