LED lighting… move over.

LEDs are already standard for car lighting. The next technological development is on the starting blocks though with OLED (organic LED). The major advantage of OLEDs: The technology offers completely new options for the design of light and luminaires.

LEDs are point light sources, whereas OLEDs are surface lights. Several lighting applications in cars – indicators, tail lamps, or interior light – require wide-area illumination. The most significant challenge for organic light emitting diodes in automotive applications is thermal stability: To meet the requirements of manufacturers, OLEDs in tail lights for example must resist temperature peaks of at least 85 degrees Celsius.
