Light control units

INTELLIGENT LIGHT CHOREOGRAPHY

Modern vehicle lighting is the result of the perfect interaction of attractive headlight design, highly efficient lights and powerful light control. Our innovative and cost-effective light control units provide OEMs and headlight manufacturers and with the best possible foundation for safe and easy-to-use lighting solutions that are true to their brand.

Our LCUs control new lights, utilize innovative control concepts and realize intelligent lighting concepts through interconnectivity with other vehicle functions as well as external vehicle and infrastructure data. In doing so, they optimize the appearance of the lighting and select the ideal color temperature for every driving and weather situation. We support new lighting functions such as adaptive front lighting systems and LED based lighting applications with adaptable, highly dynamic and scalable system solutions. Time to be inspired.

SPECIFICATIONS

THE KEY ASPECTS AT A GLANCE

LED technology will become established and soon be integrated in most new vehicles. It offers maximum design freedom for OEMs and significantly extends what is possible in terms of vehicle lighting. At the same time, the light control units face the challenge of realizing more and more functions and processing more and more information in an increasingly short timeframe.

A standard AFS functional choice includes: Bending Light (BL), Adverse Weather Light (AWL), High Beam (HB), Motorway Light (ML), Country Light (CL), Town Light (TL), and Front Fog-Light (FFL).

New functions

Powerful LED light control units change the vehicle lighting by constantly enabling new functions.

Sustainable lighting

Energy-efficient and maintenance-free LED lights and controls with a longer service life reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

Scalable platform

LED LCUs can be used for allocation and partitioning concepts and support applications with centralized and decentralized data processing.

Flexible interfaces

Our LED LCUs support communication with other vehicle systems as well as sensors and are able to process various protocols.
