    Lighting for future connected and automated vehicles
    Rising focus on connectivity and autonomous driving, along with electrification is leading to major changes, not only in the way today’s vehicles are designed, developed, and produced, but also in how they are driven and utilized for mobility. These megatrends are impacting all key areas of a vehicle, including its lighting systems. Automakers are introducing new lighting features and functionalities, which not only contribute to safer driving, but also result in better design and styling of t...
    How lighting can be used to increase safety
    Automakers have been equipping vehicles with headlamps, taillamps, and auxiliary lamps to ensure safer driving, especially at night, for more than 100 years. A vehicle’s headlamps brighten the road ahead to help drivers get clear visibility, while its taillamps help drivers of other vehicles to notice the presence of this vehicle on the road. In addition to headlamps and taillamps, automakers equip vehicles with auxiliary lights, such as turn signal lights, daytime running lights (DRLs), and f...

    Changing dynamics of rear lighting
    A vehicle’s rear lights serve the single most critical function of letting road users (including the vehicle drivers following behind) know its presence on the road, especially when driving during night. Such lights also contribute to safer driving by letting road users know the driver’s maneuvers, such as slowing down, stopping, reversing, changing lanes, and turning left or right at the traffic signal. Fitment of rear lights in vehicles is mandatory in almost all countries. In addition ...
    Imagining the ‘Apple Car’
    While Apple is yet to confirm or deny exploring vehicle development under the codename Project Titan, also referred as Chromium, a vast array of automotive stakeholders and commentators have been inquisitive of what may materialize from the so-called ‘Apple Car.’ Due to the secrecy around Apple’s car venture, a lot remains unknown or unconfirmed about the project from the manufacturing location(s), potential partners, and projected volume. This research note ...
    OEM-supplier strategies for lighting
    Lighting systems have always been critical components in vehicles as they illuminate the road to help drivers during night-time driving. They also act as effective communication tools for the driver of a vehicle to let other road users, including the drivers of other vehicles, know its intended actions such as changing lanes and directions, braking, and stopping. In addition to higher safety, lighting components also play a key role in enhancing the exterior design and appeal of vehicles. Aut...
