Automotive Head lighting has evolved into complex and intelligent systems with functions such as directional steering and adaptive dimming using technologies like LED, DLP or Laser. On the other hand, new lighting options such as OLED, LED-Strings, Mini-LED or Micro-LED will play a key role in the future in rear lamps as well and open up new design and functional possibilities. Due to the long development history, these systems are the best-developed, most robust, and best integrated photonic systems in today's mobility solutions. Light helps drivers and sensors to “see,” and serves as a medium of communication with other road users. As vehicles become more digitized, they require additional new lighting functions that go beyond the need for illumination. This trend can be seen with the increased use of dynamic lighting effects on vehicles. The complexity of these systems bring new challenges in incorporating the light sources in automotive lights of today.
