Default Volkswagen's Interactive Lighting Systems to boost Safety on the road

Volkswagen has revealed its Interactive headlights and tail light clusters help to raise the bar for safety in future.
At the same time, it is also opening the door to increasingly personalized vehicle design.

Quote:
-Future lighting systems will project 3D holograms containing information onto the road and into the virtual space

- In-house centre of lighting excellence at the Wolfsburg plant
Interactive tail light clusters for added safety:
Quote:
Matrix tail light clusters will allow warnings to be incorporated into the tail lights, for example, enabling dangerous situations, like the area at the end of a traffic jam, to be defused using car-to-car communication. New assist functions, such as the micro-lens-based “Optical Park Assist” system, will improve safety while manoeuvring. This system will be able to project the vehicle’s path onto the road to alert passers-by to the parking process

In-house Volkswagen light tunnel reduces development times:

Quote:
In this tunnel, Volkswagen is using road simulations to test its lighting systems for today, tomorrow and beyond using road simulations. The tests can be reproduced and repeated. As a result, systems can be compared and evaluated in a light tunnel better than ever before. The centre of lighting excellence is also an ideal place to investigate how drivers and pedestrians perceive light. The light tunnel has also reduced the development time for new headlight, tail light and interior lighting systems, as the number of time-consuming night drives can now be reduced.

A further effect:

Especially in a complex, noise-intensive traffic environment, light is the optimal means of communication. The headlights take over the task of maintaining eye contact with other road users. Where does the car want to go? Has it noticed the pedestrian, and will it remain stopped? This naturally increases safety.

Lighting elements can also clearly indicate whether the car is in autonomous driving mode, or if it is starting up and pulling away. Furthermore, owners can tell just from a light signal whether the vehicle is still charging, or is ready for travel again
