The path to 360° illumination und communication
Lightbars have become a trend in all markets and vehicle segments in recent years.
We are increasingly starting to see illuminated logos as a further step in vehicle design and brand awareness.
But what's next?
The transformation from individual luminous parts to smart illuminated body panels will occur.
Panels have endless design opportunities with integrated lighting functions, sensor integration and communication.
Sending and receiving information with light makes it even smart.
MORE THAN JUST LIGHT
From lightbars to "smart" front panels
The Future smart illuminated
Marelli's smart front panel opens up new styling possibilities for the vehicle front. Lighting, safety, communication, branding and design – a multitude of benefits in one front panel. It offers space for an illuminated logo that strongly highlight the brand.
Since the surface is transparent to radar beams, it can also house and conceal ADAS sensors while integrated heating prevents the surface from icing up.
Software controlled illuminated elements enable attractive, dynamic animations and car-2-X communication.
