With autonomous vehicles and electric mobility being considered the future of the automotive industry, the automotive lighting market is looking for seamless solutions. It is now increasingly becoming integrated with the Internet of Things and has potentially turned from a component of illumination to facilitating communication. There has been a sea change in its manufacturing, testing and designs both in India and globally. Also, as automobiles are growing smart, we are witnessing a megatrend in the form of Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) and Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS). Thus, lighting companies are innovating constantly to design solutions that would shape the future of mobility.
This edition of Auto Bytes discusses the megatrends in the smart lighting technologies for automobiles and the way forward for the India automobile industry.
