Developers assume that with the progressive development towards autonomous driving, the design of vehicle interiors will gain in importance. Light will play a more dominant key role in interior design - it will assume both aesthetic and functional tasks. While light used to be a static function that could only be switched on and off, it now will get countless design possibilities for car manufacturers. Color control of LEDs will play a key role.
"In the future, the interior of vehicles will be more than just a driver's cabin. It will be an extension of our living space where we can work and relax," explains Stephan Pawlik, Marketing Manager Automotive Interior at Osram Opto Semiconductors. "In the future, installed light sources will be able to perform other functions in addition to ambient lighting. For example, they can use dynamic and color effects to help draw the driver's attention to the traffic in good time."
