Audio Q7 R8 OLED concept

Remember those Tron-Legacy movie vehicles? Looks like we will see those kinds of cars on the streets soon. At least Audi is committed to bring that in few years. 

Audi brings large OLED surfaces on Audi R8 and Q7 vehicles. a dazzling array of light effects that correspond to various functions of the vehicle such as speeding up, turning left or right and more.

Audi is also working on a concept car called “swarm,” as the entire rear end of the car is turned into a large illuminated surface that reacts to the car’s movement and functions.

“This homogeneous visual effect would not be possible with today’s LEDs. These are individual points of light that need additional optical devices – reflectors, optical conductors or scatter optics. OLED surfaces are themselves the source of light, and the thin plates also look attractive. They weigh little, light up extremely fast, develop only a small amount of heat, last for several tens of thousand hours and don’t consume any more energy than conventional light-emitting diodes,” explains Head of Lighting Electronics at Audi Stephan Berlitz.
