– Recap of MAS@Shanghai 0614 on automotive lighting innovation
SHANGHAI – Cars equipped with LCD headlamps could be on the market in China by 2022, predicted Yang Shiwen, optics design manager at Hella’s Nanjing Technical Center.
Yang made the comments while speaking at CBU/CAR’s Monthly Automotive Salon (MAS) here on June 14 with a theme of Automotive Lighting Innovation.
“The first cars adopting this new headlamp system could hit the roads by the end of 2020 and two years after that Chinese local customers may request this technology,” said Yang.
OEM customers are already asking about possible SOD/SOP dates and Yang expects that by the end of 2020 the technology could be commercialized first on a Porsche or Mercedes-Benz.
Yang spoke about Project VoLiFa2020 – LCD Headlamp Development, a special project sponsored by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF) with Porsche as one of the participating members. The purpose of the project is to check the feasibility of high-end vehicle headlight using LCD plate to replace mechanical parts resulting in a very high resolution headlamp which helps to increase safety.
With the goal of improving traffic safety at dusk and in low-light conditions, the three-year project has been in place since 2014 and is entering its final phase of road testing. The joint effort is working to develop a fully adaptive automobile headlight system. Project partners, in addition to Hella and Porsche Engineering Group, include Elmos Semiconductor AG (PCB/electronics), Merck (material supplier of LCD), Schweizer Electronic AG (PCB/electronics) and the University of Paderborn. Hella was tasked with providing the LCD headlamp for the project, including optical module and ECU, and is heading and coordinating the efforts from all partners.to get more information, please click “read more” to subscribe.For quick recap version of this article, please click the link http://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/bdMTOQc4zleDI4rOlF4VkQ.
