The Audi A6 e-tron concept and the future of automotive lighting


A bit of history: Audi and car lights

It’s simple, the builder from Ingolstadt is none other than the one behind theelectric light on the car, it appeared in 1920. In 1972, it democratized the difference between the dipped beam and the main beam through two bulbs on each side. More recently, it was Audi engineers who combined daytime running lights with a LED lighting signature, important on the car produced today. For almost 10 years now, Audi has been developing matrix light technology forward, which is slowly establishing itself in the premium category. This fact shows that in the field of automotive lighting, the development of the brand and their future projects are important and shape the trajectory of this technology.

And for Audi, the latest generation of lights is that of digitalthrough fMatrix LEDs of course, but also through the use of OLED. The OLED technology, already well established in the world of screens (smartphones and televisions, for example), brings many possibilities of power and beauty to our cars. In terms of efficiency, effectiveness and personalization (through digitalisation), theOLED backlight seems to be the solution for the future for the car.
