Bioluminescent Audi’s lights

According to Stephan Berlitz, Head of Lighting Technology and Electronics at Audi, OLED is a natural extension of Audi’s own pioneering efforts integrating LED lighting into its vehicles.

At the Audi Electronics Centre in Ingolstadt last week at March 2, Audi demonstrated its new lighting. The R8 and Q7 both feature flat-panel OLED displays running the length of the vehicle—eight segments alone create the flashing turn indicator strip. Like a bioluminescent creature rising from the depths, these OLED lighting concepts from Audi are simply otherworldly. This technology is still a few years from the showroom floor and Audi still needs to overcome the 80°C temperature limit. As soon as that’s sorted, Berlitz expects these lights to begin showing up as white daytime running lights (just as the LEDs did before them) before being integrated into the larger signal sets. The company is even rumoured to be exploring a 3D OLED feature.
