Audi has announced the public premiere of the concept car, which will be demonstrated by a new version of the rear lights with organic light-emitting diodes (OLED). Their creation of the German mark has been, at least since 2013. At the “Audi” was named this technology a new step in the development of automotive lighting.
OLED-diode lights differ from the fact that they do not produce light using LED-point elements, and semiconductor layers with thickness less than one-thousandth of a millimeter every . So lanterns can be given any shape, which should open a creative space for designers. OLED-technology is already finding applications in consumer electronics, such as smartphones with curved screens.
Audi has refined this technology by combining it with another of its development – “matrix” headlamps. Such a step would allow sharing OLED-elements into small segments that emit light in different colors and with different brightness. This will change the lamps in the so-called “color scripts” and send pictures of any complexity.
The direction indicators and brake lights – the following elements automotive lighting, in which Audi is going to introduce OLED-elements. In addition, the company will improve the material from which made the basis for the OLED-layers. Now it is made from the finest glass, but in the future, hope in the “Audi”, will be made of plastic films.
In addition to Audi, to develop OLED-light district is the company BMW. In contrast, from Audi, the Bavarian brand wants to make the brake lights and turn indicators of the conventional light-emitting diodes and organic LEDs are going to use in interior illumination.
