Expanded design capabilities secure OLED lighting’s place in ELE Times’ “Top 5 Automotive Lighting Trends that are Illuminating the Path for Modern Vehicles”

Excerpt below originally published in ELE Times

A technical revolution that is bringing new technology and conventional vehicle manufacturing together is currently sweeping the automobile industry. Automotive lighting companies are creating new lighting solutions to replace outdated standard lights in response to the growing trend of advanced vehicles. New vehicle models with fine interiors are being introduced by automobile players in the industry.

Here are some trends in automotive lighting that are being incorporated into new and improved automobile models.

Organic Light-Emitting Diodes

The emergence of OLED, or organic light-emitting diodes, technology, is one particularly intriguing evolution. Organic molecules create light in OLEDs. They are more adaptable and thinner than other lighting alternatives because they don’t need a backlight to function. OLEDs function as surface lights, whereas LEDs are point light sources, opening up a whole new range of design options for car lighting. OLEDs are produced into narrow, bendable, transparent sheets by automotive lighting makers. They are perfect for dashboard screens, signal lights, and taillights for automobile interiors.

Adaptable OLEDs

Flat light sources called Organic Light-Emitting Diodes have the ability to be independently brightened and muted. The fundamental appeal of OLED lighting technology for automobiles is that they don’t require light guides or reflectors and keep their light at any angle. OLEDs are currently employed in the back illumination of automobiles. OLEDs are suitable for both interior and exterior automobile illumination because of their flexibility and lightweight. Manufacturers of automotive lighting must keep up with changes in LED and OLED lighting automation technology in order to remain competitive. When it comes to innovations in the production of automotive lighting design, Innovative Automation is at the forefront.
