Five Hot Topics for the Automotive Lighting Industry

posted Sep 17, 2017, 4:57 PM by Songyi Han
Cars have been around for over one hundred years and since the very beginning lamps were installed to ensure visibility at night. Over time automotive lights have gained increasing importance, not only to see the road ahead, but also to spot danger for the driver such as crossing animals or pedestrians. With the increased performance and speed of vehicles increased visibility is required and automotive lighting became one of the key safety features built into the car. Over the last 15-20 years the importance of design to automotive lighting has dramatically changed the way automotive lights are perceived in the industry as well as by the customers. 

With this change in perception, perfection in the appearance becomes an important factor, with new light sources the designers are given even more freedom to play with the light as the limitations in space and shape are reduced. Such changes in technology however, bring new or previous marginal problems back on the table. 

This white paper discusses the past, current and future ‘five hot topics’ for automotive lighting engineers and elaborates on how thermal simulation, as well as thermal characterization, can help to improve the design cycle and reduce costs in many ways.
