New lighting technology with laser and OLED
The concept car generates all main lighting functions with Matrix laser technology, the next step forward in the development of automotive lighting technology. Broken down into hundreds of thousands of pixels, their beam can illuminate the road in high resolution and with extreme precision control – without dazzling oncoming traffic. The use of Matrix laser OLED technology serves to highlight Audi’s Vorsprung durch Technik specifically in the domain of automotive lighting.
At the front of the car, multiple narrow, individual OLED luminaries are arranged horizontally staggered one above the other. They complement the white daytime running lights signature with blue light that is emitted to the sides and upwards. In the upper section of the grille, slats act as visual ties between the five OLED (organic light emitting diode) elements of each lighting signature. Each of these combines an LED luminary with a flat OLED element. The OLEDs produce particularly homogeneous light and can create various different lighting scenarios.
Similar to the units up front, the rear lights are also split into two zones. The upper section contains nine upright OLED units that assume the tail light functions. There are three more horizontally staggered units below these.
