Light Control Units

Intelligent and connected

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 automatically select the ideal light pattern for every driving and weather situation. We offer highly scalable, innovative LED based lighting applications, such as adaptive front lighting systems (AFS) and adaptive driving beam solutions (ADB).
