Fiber Optic Lighting

Technology Areas

Car Components & Bodywork, Electric vehicles

Keywords

Adjustable, Assembly, Body, Headlamp, Horizontally, Laser, LED, Lens, Light source, lightning, Modular, Optical Fiber, Tail light, Vertically

Innovations/Advantages

Reducing the costs of complete replacement of components housed in the chassis and/or related to the restyling of the vehicle; maximum flexibility regarding the dimensions and shapes of the light generated by the lighting assembly without compromising the energy efficiency of the lighting assembly: overall dimensions of the light assembly miniaturized to carry out simple replacement in the event of damage and/or in restyling the vehicle:
possibility of creating additional space inside the chassis to integrate new functions such as Lidar or Radar devices for ADAS; maximum flexibility regarding the size,
color, intensity and shape of the light generated by the assembly (LED lights, laser lights, etc.); optical fibers divided into their respective bundles.
