Automotive lighting systems have evolved over the last few decades, from halogen to light-emitting diodes (LEDs), organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), and laser technology, to ensure road users’ comfort, safety, and security. Introducing electronics in vehicle lights includes providing new features such as adaptive front-lighting system and intelligent light beams.
Presently, governments accepting new innovations by OEMs are also pushing for low energy consumption and environmentally friendly lighting technologies. At the same time, innovation should be followed by defined standards by regulatory bodies. Lighting regulations play an important role in this matter, and vehicles must satisfy the requirements in order to be sold in a particular country. They are usually mandated by legislation and administered by a governmental body. Europe usually leads in the adoption and regulations for newer technologies. The region permits vehicle signal lamps with intensity automatically increased during bright daylight hours when sunlight reduces the effectiveness of the stop lamps and automatically decreased during hours of darkness when glare could be a concern.
Meanwhile, other countries, including the United States, have been rather slow in adopting new lighting technologies. However, most OEMs and suppliers are working together to find new ways to fulfil market demands of different regions. In the recent past, suppliers have started forming strategic alliances rather than stepping alone in the market to meet future demand.
