One of our ambitions for these next-generation cars is to invest in technologies that improve the driving experience while also increasing the safety of drivers. In order to maximize the human driver experience, we take every aspect of personal comfort into consideration.
Among the emergence of these safety-centric technologies, automotive lighting plays a major role.
Dirk Vanderhaeghen, Senior Director of Lumileds OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Market Strategy, emphasizes future opportunities for lighting in electric and autonomous vehicles and stresses the importance of updating regulations to support ongoing innovation.
At CES 2018, Ford’s CEO James Hackett delivered the opening keynote speech, where he addressed how the future of smart cities will demand more of smart vehicles and how this will be driven by new enabling technologies, such as Automated Driving (AD), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT). There are a few key light sensing technologies enabling self-driving cars that we saw at CES that we think are worth keeping track of.
Every year, new cars hitting the road come with unparalleled sensors and autonomy with a remarkable gain in intelligence from just the year prior. Thanks to sensing technology, we’re seeing cars evolve beyond strictly transportation to become intelligent assistants to help us identify and navigate around dangers on the road. As the Detroit Auto Show approaches, at Lumileds, we see two key technologies coming into prominence for the year ahead.
