OLED Lighting Makes a Splash at Auto Shanghai 2021 Conference

April 28, 2021

Today marked the final day of Auto Shanghai 2021, one of the world’s largest automotive conferences. The eight-day event ran from April 21-28 at Shanghai’s National Exhibition and Convention Center, and OLEDWorks was thrilled to participate with our own exhibitor’s booth, for the first time in-person since the beginning of 2020. Thank you to our team in China and to our partner STMicroelectronics, who helped manage our booth during the show.

Without a doubt, what makes these events so special is the culmination of experts from around the globe and across the industry.

OLED Lighting in the New Audi A6 e-tron Concept

One of the highlights of the conference was the reveal of the new A6 e-tron concept vehicle by Audi, featuring the newest generation of digital OLED lighting technology. In the video below, you can see the beautiful three-dimensional effect of the OLED lighting technology. The higher number of individually addressable segments compared to previous iterations will lead to increased customizability, breadth of communication possibilities, and safety for drivers.
