With an objective to provide light-based assistance to drivers, Osram has proposed a conceptual futuristic automotive exterior LED lighting system – Oslon Boost HX. This revolutionary lighting system is supposed to perform the function similar to that of a projector, and would help drivers negotiate the road works, on-road hazards, or icy patches with more safety.

The single LED used in this system is claimed to deliver more than 1,400lm, which would help the company become the first innovator to efficiently break in to the growing trend of special user experience.

On the other hand, Osram Opto Semiconductors has introduced Infrared (IR) LEDs, i.e. IREDs to their automotive exterior LED lighting portfolio. Typical exterior applications are likely to include pedestrian detection, even night vision, and lane departure detection.

  • In November 2020 – Marelli, Japan, will open a production facility for electric drivetrains in Cologne, Germany. Start of production is targeted for the first half of 2021.
  • In July 2021 – Marelli Automotive Lighting, and Samvardhana Motherson Automotive Systems Group (SMRP BV), have signed a MOU to explore new technological partnership focused on Smart illuminated exterior body parts. This intends to focus on components such as front grills and bumpers, along with other car parts that can be illuminated. These components are expected to become a growing trend in the future of mobility, with increased adoption of Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) in the coming years.
  • In April 2022 – The brand new Range Rover illuminates the road with an innovative lighting system from ZKW. The “Digital Light Processing” LED headlights not only generate stepless, glare-free high beam that automatically hides oncoming or other road users. The smart, digital front lighting also makes it possible to project animated images onto the road.
