OLED – a Chance for Designers of the Rear Vehicle Lighting
Organic LEDs (OLEDs) can be deployed not only in the interior but also in the rear lighting of vehicles. The flat and thin modules emit the light with their whole surface, they don’t overheat and save energy. Their light is extremely homogeneous and creates a flat impression. The thin light sources can follow the outline contour of the car body and allow for an unexampled styling freedom. The prototype made by Automotive Lighting uses red and yellow OLEDs. Though the organic LEDs are not yet used in serial products, the prototypes show the possibilities offered by this relatively new technology of the exterior vehicle lighting.
