Automotive exterior will go way beyond simple illumination. To fulfil the requirements of higher levels of autonomous driving, innovative solutions are needed that significantly enhance safety in road traffic. Car2x communication is a crucial cornerstone to meet this ambition. Via visual displays like area messages and symbols can be personalized and transmitted more clearly, so enabling efficient communication between road participants and vehicles. Pixilation for this purpose can be witnessed, for example in rear combination lights (RCL) and center high-mounted stop lights (CHMSL), but light is also finding its way directly integrated into the body shell outside of luminaires, or license plates. Electrification of vehicles even opens a way to use illuminated grilles as a new design and signaling element.
